I'd wager when most people thought of going into marketing as youngsters, it was the more creative, fun aspects of the job that got you hooked. Maybe it was video production, maybe a bit of design, the stuff that gets people to look twice or take notice. It probably wasn't the data analysis or segmenting customer personas on the CRM.
If you enjoy some of the more creative aspects to marketing and you're open-minded about something new, this Creative Marketing Executive position may be of interest.
You'll be focusing on content production, using packages like Premiere Pro, InDesign and Photoshop to add some creative flair to the marketing campaigns. You don't need to be a Designer as there are templates to build from but a bit of experience in the above would be great and you'll be a marketeer, first and foremost.
The role will predominantly be looking after digital content including social media, website management and email. Content fields you may work on could be copywriting, imagery or video production/animation so there is a lot of scope to this role, which is great for your own development. It's a busy marketing department so you'll also be weighing in with offline materials such as brochures or flyers too.
The Creative Marketing Executive will be in a wider team of 3 where everyone has a mix of design and marketing experience so there are resources in place to share ideas, get second opinions or ask for help on those occasions where you just can't find the right function for what you want to achieve.
It's a feel-good business, the type of company where employees go to bed at night, proud of what they're doing. They've been largely unaffected by the pandemic and there is a lot to be said for stability in these times.
The absolute must-halves for this role are:
- 2+ years marketing experience
- Working knowledge of the Adobe Creative Suite. In-depth knowledge of InDesign, Illustrator and Premiere Pro would be highly beneficial.
Based in Leeds, the business will operate a sensible long-term work/life or office/WFH balance.
