The Organisation:

Based on Bermondsey St (London Bridge) in a converted Tannery, we are a recruitment business that is embedded within the consumer sector working some of the best known businesses in the industry such as Nestle, Red Bull & GSK. Formed in 2012, the business has recently rebranded & is going through an exciting period of growth with the creation of new roles across the business help drive our business forward.

At Vertical Advantage, our people define our culture. We're looking for those who are passionate about what they do and fanatic about providing the best quality work possible. We're a business where everyone has a voice, so this is a great opportunity to play an integral role in our growth over the coming years, whilst also having a lot of fun!

Recently our MD wrote this blog on what makes us different & you can also find out move on the Join Us section of our recently launched website.

The Role:

We are looking for a Marketing Manager on a part time basis (c.25 hours a week) to work closely with the MD & leadership team to deliver a best in class marketing strategy for the business. Key areas of focus will be:

Content creation - work with all teams to create bespoke, relevant content for our candidates, clients and potential employees;

Content calendar - build on our existing campaigns to deliver an engaging content calendar targeted at our key communities;

Social Media - build our client & candidate audience across the key social channels (e.g. Linked In, Twitter) whilst dedicating time and resource to building the Vertical Advantage employer brand, particularly on Instagram;

Events - organize key events within our sector & also for the employees of the business (6 monthly conferences, social events etc)

Budget management - reviewing our expenditure on advertising on an on-going basis assessing all options & potential return on investment;

General operational work - a small part of the role will involve being part of the wider operational team, taking responsibility for administrative duties on an ad hoc basis;

The Candidate:

The ideal candidate will be an experienced marketing professional with a rounded skill set that is used to working in a service led environment within either B2B or B2C. A genuine passion for the wider food & drink sector would be a real benefit as a lot of our content is geared towards that space. The ability to work autonomously (some home working is fine) is key within this role as you will be the only marketing resource within the business.

The successful candidate will be able work with a tight budget and be a pro-active self-starter that can make a tangible difference to the business. The ability to engage and influence at a senior level will be particularly important as the role will report directly to David, the owner / MD.
