Marketing Planning Manager, Huntingdon -
This is a newly created role within a large and complex, highly regarded and long established business who are entering into an exciting new phase in their history as far as their marketing strategy is concerned.
As Marketing Planning Manager you will be responsible for working with multiple stakeholders across the business to identify their needs and shape this into a holistic, coordinated, centrally held marketing plan that delivers against the commercial objectives of the business.

You will oversee the governance and delivery of this plan, reviewing performance and revising the strategy as required. Working with the other senior marketers within the team, you will establish a proactive, positive new system of governance for the business, applying this to the creation of the marketing plan.

Key responsibilities:
*Work with multiple stakeholders across the business to identify their needs and shape this into a holistic, coordinated marketing plan to deliver against the commercial objectives of the business.
*With the other senior marketers within the team, oversee the delivery of this plan - creating one view of activity among the marketing professionals across the business.
*Continuously review performance to plan, consulting with the senior marketing team as required.
*Support the senior marketing team in optimising and testing activity and revising strategy where necessary.
*Support the head of department in managing and centrally holding the marketing planning process, working with other functions and the wider marketing team, and also establishing and managing a proactive, positive governance process for the ongoing creation of the marketing plan.

In essence, this role is about helping piece everything together! Whilst it is a supporting role in some respects it also has its own remit and, should everything go to plan, it will be quite a hands-on marketing role.

We're looking for an intelligent, degree educated marketer with proven marketing experience from within a large and complex, matrix structured environment. With experience working at a strategic and pan-organisational level you will need to be confident operating in a fast paced environment, dealing with senior level stakeholders in a marketing context, and be confident enough to push back constructively when working with them.

You will need to be a good listener with exceptional emotional intelligence and attention to detail, strong analytical and planning skills, the ability to forge effective working relationships, and the nous to quickly grasp the workings of a complex organisation and be able to translate company objectives into coherent and creative marketing plans.
It would be a distinct advantage if your marketing experience had been gained from within the service sector as opposed to a more tangible product led sector, however, this isn't essential.

If this role sounds of interest and you would like to find out more about this opportunity then please apply!

Due to the location of their Huntingdon office, this role could be of interest to those living in Cambridge, Huntingdon, Kettering, Leicester, Peterborough, Loughborough, Nottingham, Boston, Sleaford, Oakham, Spalding.
