This company was one of the first independent electronic cigarette companies in the UK. They sell Electronic Cigarettes via online and two retail outlets located in Brighton, focussing on quality and amazing customer service.

Founded by a young entrepreneur with a compelling passion for the product and a flair for business, the company has grown from strength to strength boasting impressive year on year sales growth. Electronic Cigarettes/ are predicted to take over cigarette sales by 2030, and the company wants to play a major part in making that happen.

As Marketing Manager your job brief is simple:

1. Acquiring new customers
2. Making sure these and current customers are retained

To achieve this brief you will be responsible for developing and implementing digital marketing strategies to help spread the word about their company and drive sales. You will be working with in-place agencies and freelancers to help with ad hoc tasks and spread the work-load. These teams include, SEO, Graphic Design, Web-Dev, and Copy-Writers. They are always on the lookout for talent so if you have suggestions or experience with other local firms they are open to discussion.

You will work with the Director and Operations manager to discuss and implement ideas, budgets, promotions and analysis as well as creating and presenting strategies of your own. However, a large portion of your work will rely your own efforts, so the ability to work alone is crucial. They do not have large management departments so self-organisation is a must.

Their main areas of growth going forward will be SEO, Wholesale, and developing their Mailing List so experience in these sectors is preferred. Please be aware that due to the nature of their product, a lot of paid advertisement methods are restricted (PPC, Facebook Ads) so organic is key.
