Make a career choice thatcounts

We are on a journey as an organisation. A journey to become more digitally focused, hyper efficient and disruptors across the sectors in which we operate. Our strategy is set, our direction is clear. What comes next is what we love the most; applying our skills and experience to innovate, design, implement and deliver real business value, improve the way we operate, and give us the competitive edge to do great things for all the right reasons!

Our marketing and communications team is full of knowledgeable individuals; we work hard and love what we do. We are passionate about communications and are constantly learning and sharing more about the ways in which we can communicate with our customers and stakeholders. And we always have plenty of snacks on the go to keep us fuelled!

We need not just one but two incredible Marketing Advisors to help us deliver on our strategy. You will deliver integrated marketing campaigns to a range of audiences, thinking creatively and monitoring effectiveness. You will produce high quality communications content across a range of channels (did you know our customer magazine scooped the gold award for Best Publication in the CIPR NE awards last year?) and you’ll be a trusted source of marketing advice for colleagues at all levels across the organisation.

You’ll work with Lucy, our Marketing Campaign Manager, who has ten years’ marketing experience – with over half of it spent at Home Group. A caffeine lover with a keen eye for detail (and a love of a red pen for proofing!), you’ll work together to provide innovative marketing support to the organisation.

So if you want to do awesome things in a brilliant team and work for an organisation that really makes a difference… join us at Home Group.

Working flexibly

It’s the team’s unwritten rule that you attend the important appointments in life, be it your child’s school play, your partner’s graduation, or to get your new fridge delivered. You can elect to fit these around your working day or use your flexi to take the time off. Our focus is on getting the job done, not your working hours!

A bit about you

You will be a strong and capable communicator with an ability to work under pressure and an understanding of the importance of a strong brand.

You’ll have experience of delivering quality marketing communications and creating original content for a range of channels. You’ll understand the workings of a diverse and dispersed organisation and be able to confidently communicate with our different audiences. Oh, and you’ll be able to apply a creative spark to your communications too!

You’ll be able to demonstrate your relevant professional experience and be dedicated to your development – whether through a CIM qualification or membership, or a commitment to keeping abreast of current marketing trends and developments.

What’s on offer?

You’ll be equipped to work in our high tech organisation in an agile fashion with the latest IT kit which includes you being issued with a surface pro tablet and smart phone. We also offer a casual dress code – dress for your calendar!

We know that you will thrive here, challenging your own ambitions with our fantastic career opportunities. There’s lots on offer, and we know you’ll be impressed with our award winning rewards and benefits package which includes: competitive salaries, performance related pay, a contributory occupational money-purchase pension scheme with life assurance and long term disability insurance, 25 days paid holiday a year rising by one day per year up to 30 days, with the ability to purchase an extra five days, salary sacrifice schemes including cycle, car, technology and childcare vouchers, heavily discounted AA membership, gyms and savings on high street stores, holidays and restaurants amongst many others.

Aren’t we the lucky ones? To top this off, we also have a full recognition scheme including an annual Home Stars Award Ceremony – will you be our next Star?
