Job Description

Without question, the role of 2018 so far if you're an ambitious content marketer who's looking for their next big challenge. Joining this incredible business as Head of Marketing could be career defining.

Usually, most job ads would now list out all the things 'my client' wants from you. But this is your move, your career. So what's in it for you?

To start with you'll be joining one of the most marketing centric, forward thinking and rapidly growing businesses in the region. A business that's redefining the rules in their sector, creating real stand-out in the process. In fact, it's their relentless focus on stand-out content and audience engagement that's enabled the expansion and diversification of the business.

This isn't a business who places importance on traditional career trajectories. They hire, and reward, on merit, vision, values and capability. They've built an exceptional business based on an exceptional content output, with a culture that makes every day an exciting one. And they're only just starting.

Sound interesting? Here's what you'll need to bring to the party…

We're looking for a Head of Marketing, but it's entirely possible this isn't the role you're currently sat in.

We absolutely need you to have a depth of understanding of the latest marketing channels and the power of content marketing to drive awareness, engagement and inbound opportunities.

However, this could have been gained in a similarly fast growing, marketing centric business, or it could be that you've been working on the agency side of things, partnering with clients to develop digitally led marketing activity. Equally, it could be that you're feeling trapped by the constraints of a big corporate environment & craving that opportunity to truly make an impact.

Either way, we'll need you to have a real energy and positive, proactive approach. You'll lead from the front and be as happy getting stuck in to the detail of delivery, as you are working with the Marketing Director to define strategy.

You'll have a clear understanding of the power of content marketing and the sheer breadth of forms this can take, coupled with a knack for developing content calendars that achieve maximum reach. We're talking the full suite of channels that are available to the modern marketer - podcasts, vlogs, youtube videos, social channels, magazines, email, events - and ensuring it's targeted and optimised to reach audiences in the most effective way possible.

It should go without saying for a role of this nature that you'll have a real hunger for staying abreast of the latest trends and the opportunities in the content and inbound marketing space, pulling on all the wider opportunities from across the marketing mix - whether it's traditional or digital channels.

To round all this off, you'll have a proven ability to manage, inspire and develop a super talented team, ensuring that they're challenged and motivated to deliver truly class leading work.

All told, this is an exceptional role that really shouldn't be missed, whether you are actively seeking a new challenge, or not. Roles like this don't come along often, so apply now in the strictest confidence for immediate consideration.

Based in Warrington, it's an easy commute from Manchester, Altrincham, St Helens, Runcorn, Widnes, Liverpool, Wigan and surrounding areas in Cheshire.
