Group Marketing Assistant

  • Permanent
  • 37.5 per week
  • Ellesmere, UK

This document provides an overview of the responsibility, supporting tasks, experience, knowledge, personal traits & skills of the Group Marketing Assistant. It concerns a complete Group Marketing Assistant’s responsibility with a strong focus on coordinating and supporting activities.

As a key team member within the Organisation, the Group Marketing Assistant will be a team player who will support the Group Marketing Manager closely and be a completely reliable backstop.

Working primarily on integrated campaigns, you will understand how to work across different materials across different cultures. We have a standardised way of working and strong strategic focus, both of which you must embrace and be the guardian of.

Being a creative thinker is a must. However, being a designer is not essential – but being a good project management is. Consistency, quality, efficiency and clarity will be your mantra. From timing plans to social media, proofing to brand uniformity, you will proactively manage every aspect of global campaign delivery.

Being a self-starter is vital. This is a fast-paced department and duplication of effort is not on the agenda. Therefore, knowing your responsibilities and owning them fully, without requirement of the Group Marketing Manager to check things are in motion, or have been done, is where you need to be. Multiple campaigns and projects will be running at any one time, often with no break between one and starting another!

We recently underwent a huge re-brand and are currently building a foundation for the future. We want someone who can fully get on board with the brand, and apply your experience and knowledge to your work.
