Are you looking for your next big challenge with the real responsibility to create and deliver the marketing plan? We are now currently advertising for a Marketing Executive to join our expanding Marketing function based in Alfreton!

About the Marketing Executive role:

This is a mixed marketing role with a current bias to direct response (national press and magazine) advertising and developing the digital communication strategy.

This role reports into the Head of Sales and Marketing and provides an ideal opportunity for a bright analytical marketer with a strong personality to use their energy, creativity, and flair to develop the marketing function to drive sales at an exciting time in the company's evolution.
