Job Description

Marketing Assistant, Cambridge -

A Cambridge-based technology company with a broad distribution channel globally are looking to recruit a marketing assistant to join their small, but dynamic, marketing team.
Their established partnerships allow them to create and deliver products that are at the cutting-edge of design, and they're looking for a marketing assistant to be just as passionate about their brand as they are.

The role will be broad and varied, offering a furthered step into marketing. Assisting with and implementing marketing plans, you'll also coordinate the company calendar for all marketing activities, ensuring that the coordination of company events goes smoothly and without a hitch.

Alongside this, there will also be the opportunity to support the PR campaign programme, and maintain and update the company website, adding minor additions and changes that overall can make a huge difference to customer experience.

Reporting into the Marketing Manager, you'll get to unleash your creative side with managing and maintaining marketing collateral and working on direct marketing and email campaigns, ensuring that the company and its products are always portrayed in the best light.

Although you'll be working within a team of three people on a day-to-day basis, you'll also form key relationships outside of your team to enable successful internal communications and make sure that every department is on the same page. As the successful candidate, you'll work alongside other departments including Engineering, Finance, Production and Sales.

So, what do you need to make sure you're the winning candidate? A degree in Marketing/Business or a relative discipline or qualification is necessary, and previous experience of working within a Marketing/Communications role will also come in useful.

Strong IT skills are crucial, along with a good grasp of Microsoft Office software and Adobe Creative Suite. However, if you're willing to learn and have the initiative, the company will be more than happy to provide the training you need.

Are you word-savvy and fancy yourself as the creative type? The ability to proof-read and content write is also desirable, along with practical experience of using CMS for websites and social media channels. Being digitally aware in this company will make sure you stand out from other candidates.

In exchange for your dedication and commitment to the role, the company will offer excellent career and development opportunities, along with a competitive salary and benefits package. Still reading? Take the time to apply and see where this ambitious organisation could take you!

This role would be most applicable to candidates travelling from areas of Cambridgeshire and the wider region, including Bar Hill, Histon, Great Shelford, Sawston, Comberton, Grantchester, Cambourne, Papworth Everard, and Swavesey.

For registration purposes, please could you let us know where you are currently based or which locations you are considering as well as your required salary and notice period.
Please upload a Microsoft Word version of your CV where possible, excluding textboxes or images, as this can affect the consultant's job matching process and therefore your details may not be picked up for a role.
