The ideal candidate will have extensive experience in Digital Marketing with particular focus on creating and managing digital campaigns, website management and analysing statistics using tools such as Google Analytics.

A collaborative and hands-on leader, the successful candidate will enjoy developing others and be able to manage the team workload effectively.  The Group Marketing team has colleagues in UK, Germany, China and the US so a candidate with experience of managing employees remotely would be highly desirable, but flexibility and understanding of different cultures is crucial. It is essential for an applicant to bring experience in implementing a marketing strategy and motivating their team to follow the shared vision.

A creative and innovative skillset is required to succeed in this role, but a focus on process development and improvement is also necessary to support the Group Marketing team in moving toward a more strategic future.

The Group Marketing team has been recently restructured and features two channels – Digital Marketing and PR and Communications. Due to this, a strong communicator and team player is required for this role, as the successful candidate will be expected to support the PR and Communications team when needed, deputising for the PR and Communications Manager on occasion.
