Do you have the right combination of scientific rigour and artistic creativity to help tell the world our amazing story?
In Visit Britain’s 2018 business survey delegates voted Harrogate a top five event destination and number one for visitors who would choose to return to an event city in their own leisure time.
We’ve been hosting events on the site of today’s Convention Centre since 1835, helping event organisers and their audiences to connect, engage, grow and play. We welcome around 300,000 visitors and contribute an estimated economic impact of £57m to Harrogate’s economy each year.
As we plan the next stage of our development we are looking for an outstanding marketing manager with a demonstrable track record of identifying and growing audiences.
The successful candidate will most likely have at least five years’ experience in marketing. Although not essential, experience in events, venue or destination marketing will be an advantage. Digital Marketing and social media will be second nature.
Your work will be focussed on national and international b2b marketing as well as nurturing our audience of consumers to help grow our own events and that of our clients.
Reporting to the Head of Sales and Events you possess the knowledge and experience to run and analyse the numbers from which you will decide how we look and sound, before creating attention grabbing campaigns with the assistance of two direct reports and our creative agencies.
