Role: Marketing Communications Manager
Working location: Central London twice a week and 3 days from home
Salary: Up to £50,000 base

This opportunity has arisen from parental leave, scheduled for a 5 month period beginning at the end of August.

You will be joining a travel company and handling marketing and communications project work aligned to the calendar, coupled with reactive media work which tends to arise relatively frequently. This reactive work often requires the creation of content, communications and PR (principally Public Affairs) work, principally targeted to a B2B audience.

On the projects side, there’s a few high-profile campaigns in the works you’ll take lead on executing. Including owning the organisations promotion of its green and sustainability credentials, as well as its support of UK businesses in general.

In addition, you will essentially be the industry’s voice for things like accessibility and industry relations. This tends to manifest through reactive media campaigns. Identifying and promoting  various positive moves the organisation is making across the industry.

Campaigns can cut across various media channels including print media, digital and social channels.

You will own the strategic plan behind content, deciding the where, how and when. What the media plan looks like, how this ties into campaign planning and the content which feeds it.

The business is going to be building a Public Affairs team to support in the reactive media side. This new team will eventually lift some of the workload in this area, freeing you up to focus more of your time and energy into planning and executing campaigns on the projects side of the marketing communications calendar.

Working alongside you will be the media team and marketing function. Your work will often dovetail with theirs. Whilst the marketing team’s focus is aligned to revenue driving opportunities, some of the campaigns you’ll be handling have an opportunity for this too.

There is a budget, but you will also be given opportunity to pitch for more based on each campaign opportunity which arises. You will scope out what’s required to achieve the desired outcomes. Considering things like audience profiling, media mix, campaign terms, agency vs in-house capabilities, etc.

So if you’re looking for a role with a big of variety and breadth to it, and don’t mind it’s only likely to be a short-term gig. Why not apply to find out more?

  • Good knowledge of marketing communications, including some experience of PR/Public Affairs
  • Experience within a corporate environment handling marketing communications campaigns end to end, including the planning stages
  • Confident in your abilities to get things done. You don’t need to look for affirmation on things like campaign plans and approach
