Working closely with the owner of the company the Sales and Marketing Project Manager will lead on sales and brand promotion strategy for the company. This is no ordinary run of the mill post however, as the business creates highly designed exclusive products where the story behind the design and manufacture is as important as the product is to the customer. Therefore the successful candidate will need to understand and engage with that story and carry it authentically to market.
The main tasks for this post are to:
• Drive an increase in sales both at shows and on website and develop brand presence to the correct markets.
• Manage, develop and implement social media strategies for all platforms.
• Manage content of company website – aligned to social media strategy.
• Research market and potential sales opportunities.
• Plan and send out news letters to mailing list.
• Work with manager to develop relationship with potential customers.
• Create sales and marketing strategies for different ranges, including new products.
• Write Press Releases and gain coverage in press and blogs.
• Attend shows as sales representative.
The ideal candidate will have a background in sales and marketing, not necessarily a recent graduate who would want to make the most of the opportunity to remain in the role, shaping future business development and growth.
An interest in the creative industries is essential, as are excellent verbal and written communication skills. Experience of developing social media use to fit a business environment is essential. You must be able to demonstrate good research skills and the ability to prioritise and plan your own work load. Imagination, a hard-working ethic and resilience are key to this post, as is the ability to work as part of team and alone.
Some flexibility can be offered around the hours and place of work. This will be negotiated with the successful candidate.
