We’re looking for a whip-smart, multi-channel marketing manager who can dive into the role of supporting a group of recruitment brands and their associated divisions.
We’re bright, we’re bold, we’re better than the competition, and we can offer you a varied workload, state-of-the-art Cardiff offices, and a vibrant, thriving team to work with. Up to the challenge? Read on:
This is what you’ll be doing:

A widely varied role that will cover an expansive range of marketing manager duties. From top-level marketing strategy and working with the senior board of directors, through to working with individual divisions/ consultants on their own bespoke activities and campaigns, you’ll be covering all areas.

These can include:

  • Website management – ownership of the websites from updating content, creating blogs, mapping out landing pages/new areas, and ensuring our websites are an ever-growing organic platform

  • Social media – manage the social media content calendars, creating content, launching paid campaigns when required (previously weighted heavily towards LinkedIn paid campaigns)

  • Events – manage the events calendar and coordinate the organisation of all events. These can include: client conferences, candidate workshops, recruitment days, award sponsorships, internal events (AGM/ Christmas party)– the roster of events has switched to virtual events for 2020

  • Email – e-shot template creation via recruitment CRM for sales team use, mailchimp email marketing campaigns, coordination of email signatures via exclaimer

  • PR & communications– manage the relationship with our PR agency, creating stories through-out the year and promoting

  • Internal communication/ marketing – assist the directors with communicating relevant messaging through-out the company, helping with the on-boarding of new employees, ensuring the office is branded effectively and helping with the creation of new materials when needed

  • Content Creation – writing and designing content such as case studies, social media posts, website pages, marketing literature. You’ll manage third party design suppliers for design projects/assets.

 

The experience you’ll bring to the team:

We’re looking for an experienced marketing professional who can effectively manage a multitude of priorities, and run off their own initiative to ensure projects are completed on time.

Experience in the below is essential:

  • Excellent skills in drafting content and writing sparky, eye-catching long and short form copy

  • Experience of managing events and the admin processes involved, as well as the hands-on experience of coordinating an event on the day (currently virtual)

  • Be able to use WordPress CMS systems to update websites, blogs and landing pages

  • You’ll have a clear understanding of social media including crafting content, scheduling and monitoring

  • Experience with using relevant marketing programmes to help with deliverables, that could be the examples listed here or equivalents: mailchimp/hubspot/hootsuite/canva/adobe creative suite etc

  • A resilient attitude is required as you’ll work directly with the sales teams, business development managers and directors across a range of requests and projects.

A big benefit (not essential) is possessing experience in recruitment marketing and how to manage differing marketing messages across clients and candidates.

And this is what you’ll get in return:

No two days are the same as you’ll be flexing different marketing skills, as well as being able to develop yourself and the department.

We boast one of Cardiff’s most colourful and state-of-the-art offices, and we’re known for being an exciting and lively working environment. Due to 2020, we are enabled to work remotely for announced lockdowns, and outside of these, we can also discuss remote working options for certain days of the week if required.

The salary will be dependent on experience, and we offer a range of perks through-out the year from summer/Christmas parties, quarterly team events, on-site parking (important for Cardiff!) and local gym memberships, to name a few.
