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:

  • Social Media – Managing ProspectSoft’s corporate and placement social media platforms, you’ll have the opportunity to develop social media campaigns to engage our audiences.

  • Video Content – Using programmes like Camtasia and Adobe Premiere Pro, you can get involved in creating, editing and enhancing videos, as well as scripting and storyboarding videos for us to use in our comms!

  • Recruitment – There will be the opportunity to be selected as the next placement recruiter for Commercial roles. This will involve you managing the entire recruitment process end to end; from reviewing CVs and cover letters to booking and conducting Telephone Interviews. You’ll also be responsible for organising and running our Commercial Assessment Centres! 
  • HubSpot & Google Certifications – Boost your marketing knowledge by undertaking industry-accredited certifications, like HubSpot’s Inbound Marketing Certification and Google Analytics courses…ideal to add to your CV!
