They are an agile and entrepreneurial business with a start-up feel; part of a wider media group that is a market leader in the field of innovation consultancy.
They are currently looking for a Marketing Manager to work across all their product areas. You will provide and execute a smooth and timely marketing strategy & marketing campaigns for our client’s global initiatives and develop a deep understanding of the market, its dynamics and product positioning within each sector.

You will manage and lead a small team and your suppliers to ensure a successful campaign (the role has one direct report).
We're looking for a candidate with around five years B2B marketing experience - and this must include events marketing. You'll ideally be passionate about creative, innovative and tech-led businesses. You will need to be comfortable in a start-up environment - albeit one with the backing of a wider media business and an existing impressive track-record of success. You'll need excellent copywrting skills, be well versed in marketing via multiple digital channels - and will be a creative and enthusiastic team player.
The role attracts a bonus over and above the basic salary.
