MotoNovo has recently embarked on a journey to diversify and expand its current highly successful operation into adjacent Finance & Insurance markets within the UK and Europe and, as our business evolves and grows having already established a consumer finance business in 2016, it is vital that we are equipped with the expertise and vision to drive us forward and take our business to the next level – and the Group Head of Marketing is a key part of this journey, to help build and shape the strategy and marketing proposition for the MotoNovo Group business.

This opportunity, whilst already a senior role within the MotoNovo leadership team, could lead to substantial career progression opportunities within the UK and beyond for the successful candidate.

As Group Head of Marketing, and part of a dynamic management team working alongside other high-calibre professionals, you will take full responsibility for the Marketing function across the Group, embodying the MotoNovo brand ethos of ‘driving forward through innovation and change’.

You will be results driven, pro-active with excellent analytical skills and the expertise to influence and build effective relationships with the board, management team, and other staff.

You will be comfortable operating in a senior environment, an outstanding communicator and used to making significant business decisions.
