Digital Marketing Assistant / Executive
7 days left
- Full Time
Stuck in a role which doesn’t challenge you? Had enough of going through the motions? Want to be part of a close-knit team in a growing business? Do you like the idea of something completely different (as Monty Python used to say)?
If so, how about ditching all of your career woes and coming over to 'The Dark Side’?
SSG have a fantastic opportunity for a Digital Marketing professional to join our committed team, working out of our beautiful and unique office, based in Berkhamsted (near Hemel Hempstead).
You will work with our existing creative and technical team and a friendly client base (who are all small recruitment companies).
Who is SSG?
Since 2003, SSG has offered motivated Recruiters a free business launch and brilliant ongoing business support facility in exchange for nothing more than a decreasing percentage of the on-going billings of the business. No fixed costs, no money up-front, no surprises.
From our humble starting point back in 2003, we have been fortunate enough to have now established over 300 new Recruitment Companies for our target demographic.
Your Opportunity - Digital Marketing Assistant / Executive
This is a fantastic opportunity to step into a varied role, in a dynamic and growing business. You will report to the Creative Head, but have plenty of input on developing strategies and proposing new approaches so you won’t by shy about suggesting fresh ideas.
You will take responsibility for email, SEO, PPC and content channels (and everything that creatively and technically contributes to them - blogs, video, photography, editorial work, technical elements, chatting, laughing and the inevitable consumption of coffee) for SSG and our recruitment business, Liberty Vets Recruitment. You will report progress regularly against a clear set of KPIs to the Creative Head and the Directors.
You’ll also be the "go to" expert for all things SEO and digital marketing for our friendly and entrepreneurial client base, advising them on how best they can utilise digital marketing in their start-up recruitment businesses.
You will have all the fun of working closely with our clients, who will look to you for practical advice, moral support and encouragement, as they work hard in their own business. You will gain satisfaction in knowing that you are making a real difference to the lives of the recruiters we support.
At the same time, you will be supported by a great team of people here at SSG who are lovely, friendly and brilliant at their jobs (I know, because they told me!)
Key skills required?
First and foremost, you’ll be passionate about all things digital marketing - you’ll love getting that creative cap on and dreaming up wonderful ways of engaging with our target market. SSG is full of personality and you’ll need to communicate that to the world!
Practically, you’ll be familiar with both Google and Bing PPC platforms; as well as Google Display Network and remarketing; have experience managing social media accounts including LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook; possess excellent communication skills (both verbal and written) alongside good copywriting skills; and have a good working knowledge of PPC and email marketing campaigns.
Ideally, you’ll hold a good understanding of SEO (including optimisation of content, URL management, mobile SEO, site speed for SEO, link building, Google analytics and meta tags) and have experience using WordPress and email platforms such as MailChimp.
On top of all that, you will need to be the type of person who thrives on getting things just right, being in control of a process, focussed on the perfect administration of a basically human task.
This is not easy - combining efficiency with real care in a genuinely empathetic way.
So, yep, the best way to describe this role is Digital Marketing with challenge and personality!
What’s in this for me, I hear you ask?
Well, apart from the genuine satisfaction of doing something unique, learning new skills and enjoying being a key member of a totally 'different’ business, you will probably be interested in some of the following stuff:
- Salary between £25,000 and £28,000 per annum.
- Exceptionally friendly and helpful colleagues
- Loads of holiday
- Lovely working environment
- Constant challenge
- Full Fat Friday, every Friday
SSG is a great place to work!
