Job Description

This is an incredible opportunity to join a fast growing and values centred agency who are extremely passionate about providing world-class B2B Marketing expertise and delivery to our clients as well as a fantastic employee experience. The person in this role will have a natural flair for visual content, recognising what clean and impactful design looks like and be adept at interpreting clients’ requirements and translating that into detailed briefs for our design team.

You will also be a natural with words, not a pure copy-writer but someone who pays attention to tone of voice, has an eye for detail and can write clean and impactful messaging and communications. The successful applicant will be highly organised, able to plan for and project manage many different forms of content creation all the way from initial client briefing through to final creative delivery.

The successful applicant is a highly collaborative team player, who is able to work on your own initiative and enjoys a fast-paced, agile working environment. You will be keen to develop your skills in B2B marketing and would relish the opportunity to play a central role in our growing agency. You will report to the Head of Strategic Communications.

Summary of the role

Your principal responsibility will be to work with our Head of Strategic Communications and supporting our ABM and Digital Marketing teams to define the requirements for, and manage the end-to-end delivery of content for our clients. You will be aware of how to plan the right content at different stages of the buying lifecycle, confident to make recommendations on how to approach a brief. You will be involved in everything from ads and digital content, video and animation, to blogs and sales enablement materials. Whilst not a designer yourself, you will have a creative mind and an eye for layouts and visual appeal.

The second part of your role will be to support in the development of messaging and copy – extracting insights from research and product information and turning that into compelling customer centric proof points and messaging hooks. These messaging hooks will form the basis of the brief for the content that you will create.  From time-to-time you will also get involved in the development of buyer personas, conducting live interviews with end customers to gather the insight that will feed into the messaging and the brief.

The right candidate will be able to assimilate complex information quickly and logically, have a natural flair for messaging and writing engaging copy and content, be naturally inquisitive, unafraid of asking challenging questions and have the confidence to lead client projects and present with impact.

You will likely come from a marketing communications or equivalent background either in-house or at an agency.

As the role is remote, you will be a self-starter and confident enough to reach out to the team when you need support. You will be articulate and passionate about delivering results for clients.
