Job Description

Communications Manager - Leeds - c£25k

Artisan and craft brewery, based in Leeds, is looking for a Communications Manager to oversee PR and social media strategy for the brand. An interest in craft beer is a must.

Working alongside the Marketing Director and a Marketing Executive, you will oversee all PR and comms, including social media, blogs and outreach. You will work with senior management to put together a long-term comms strategy to enhance the brand and deliver rapid growth forecasts to match those already achieved for years to come. You will be proficient across all social media platforms and have experience of email marketing/CRM campaigns (ideally MailChimp). You will be able to communicate at all levels and with all audiences - from Press and investors to consumers and fans. You will be equally happy working with both external comms and internal/stakeholder comms.

To be considered for this role, you must be an experienced PR/comms professional, with at least two years' experience - whether that is agency-side or in-house doesn't matter too much, but you must have consumer communications experience (candidates from B2B backgrounds will not be considered). You will have demonstrable social media strategy and management experience and really champion the channel as the valuable communications tool it is. Finally, you must have an interest in and knowledge of craft beers in the UK - everyone working at this company is passionate about the product and the Comms Manager will be no different!

This is an excellent opportunity to join a wonderful craft brewery with an excellent reputation and some great marketing already in place. The ideal job for anyone into craft beer and a real opportunity to make a massive difference.
