Rare opportunity for a Marketing Communications Executive with the ability to speak an additional European language to work with an international B2B organisation.

The role:

A brand new role within the growing marketing department of an ambitious distributor, this is a really interesting and busy position. The role will offer the opportunity to work on one specific brand that holds the number 1 position in the UK market. You will be responsible for the delivery of the full marketing plan across the UK and EMEA region, reporting to the Marketing Manager. You will need to have the ability to write effective communications (in English) in the required style for email-shots, websites, case studies, press releases, newsletters, brochures, social media, advertising, product catalogues, etc., and will work with the Marketing Coordinator on the organisation of relevant events. You will support and liaise with 3rd party marketing and translation agencies, and will use CRM to collate customer spend and focus groups to enable the accurate targeting of messages. You'll work with the in-house design team, assist the Marketing Manager with internal communications, and drive the translation of all documents for the International team.

What we're looking for:

As the marketing representative for such a key section of the business, this role will be really busy, and therefore we need someone who is experienced within marketing communications and who has the ability to multitask and act on their own initiative. We also need someone with at least business level ability in an additional European language - French or Spanish would be the preferences. You won't be writing in the second language, but you will be proofing documents and speaking to colleagues in other countries. If English is not your first language (if you're a European national), we would also need your written English skills to be top notch, as there is a lot of copywriting in the role. Experience from a B2B environment would also be advantageous.

What's on offer?

A salary of £26-28,000 plus bonus based on personal objectives, plus flexi-time and a good holiday allowance. This is an environment with really stable employment - many of the department have been there a long time - and they are looking for individuals who wish to grow and develop with the organisation and eventually take on more senior roles. If this sounds interesting and you have the required language skills, contact Emma Tee at AF Selection for more information, or simply apply now!
