  • Using Microsoft Dynamics CRM, develop systems and processes to monitor the effectiveness of marketing activity and report on ROI
  • Create marketing and social media strategies and guidelines.
  • Plan and manage the launch of new product and service campaigns.
  • Oversee and approve all company-wide PR and communications content.
  • Through active networking and engagement, organise and attend events to meet new and existing clients.

To be considered for this role, your CV will demonstrate to following skills and experience:

  • Educated to degree level in a marketing related discipline.
  • Proven track record in a senior level hands-on marketing role.
  • Creative flair needed to develop compelling and salient content in saturated markets.
  • Successfully created targeted marketing campaigns across social media channels, digital and print.
  • Highly refined analytical skills needed to gain a deep understanding of market trends, campaign efficacy and impact of marketing on company performance.
  • Confident, professional and engaging, you will be a natural networker, comfortable attending events and presenting to large groups.
  • Developing comprehensive reports for presentation at board level
  • The passion and drive to succeed in a fast growing £multi-mil group of companies.

As well as an excellent salary and benefits package you will benefit from career progression opportunities, regular social events, a modern working environment in Manchester City Centre with the ability to work remotely post lockdown.

If you are tired of having your creativity and drive stifled and you are keen to step into a role where your knowledge and expertise will be highly valued, ideally placing you in a position to progress to Marketing Director as the group grows send a full CV today.

Due to the number of applications, unfortunately if you do not meet all the necessary criteria you will not be considered for this role.
