As a Marketing Assistant, you’ll have the opportunity to get involved in a variety of projects, including the delivery of direct and digital marketing communications.
Reporting to our Head of Marketing, you’ll have a hands-on role and make a real impact on the business. Whether it be managing social media content across our company and placement platforms or generating new strategies to increase the number of qualified leads for our Sales team, you’ll develop a strong understanding of B2B marketing and will enhance your skills in both inbound and outbound marketing. All marketing efforts will be centred around online lead generation, with a real focus on attracting and converting high quality leads via several marketing channels.
Some of the things you’ll be doing:

You’ll also be reporting on and analysing social media data and results, as well as building and monitoring new strategies to generate more enquiries.
- Copywriting – You’ll be tasked with creating exciting blogs to publish on both our corporate and placement websites, which will directly contribute towards our SEO efforts.
