The Haymarket Skills Academy provides unparalleled opportunities in media. Our award winning apprenticeships are a fantastic way to gain industry experience whilst also receiving an accredited qualification. As part of our next intake of apprentices we are now looking for a Subscriptions Assistant to join our Automotive team. 

Haymarket Automotive comprises What Car?, Classic and Sports Car and Autocar - four brilliant brands that are world-famous for informing and entertaining car buyers, sellers and owners and which share the goal of leading in their chosen marketplaces.

Our reputation is built on quality journalism, slick marketing, product innovation and dogged and skilled salescraft, all in support of digital and print products that lead the market. No other automotive brand interacts with consumers and the car industry so comprehensively or is as well respected by its audience.

Whatever we do, we aim to be the best - and that starts with our teams and the way we place them at the heart of everything we do.

Day to day you’ll support the subscriptions marketing manager to set up and manage campaigns for each brand, manage the subscriptions marketing and retention plans, putting together reports on subscriptions figures, delivering the budgeted subscription revenues for their designated titles and managing promo budgets to deliver effective marketing activity for both acquisitions and retention.

In addition, you’ll be involved in planning for larger scale projects or initiatives, working closely with the Subscription Marketing Manager to grow the subscriptions file.


Why work with us?

People are our greatest asset here at Haymarket Media Group. We pride ourselves on being the best specialist media company in the world and we’re hard-wired to produce brilliant content for our readers and event attendees, with over 16,000 companies around the globe turning to us to help their businesses grow. Join us and you will work on market-leading brands to help create powerful and lasting relationships that deliver real results, all while developing your own career.


Career opportunities

As part of your apprenticeship you’ll not only receive a qualification but also gain valuable on the job experience. You will also have the opportunity to attend Haymarket’s in-house, specialist training sessions to aid you further in your role. Since 2014 over 75% of our apprentices have started in permanent  positions after completing their apprenticeship.


Our working culture

Our team culture is friendly, vibrant and sociable. We have just as much fun after hours, too - be it drinks with colleagues, awards ceremonies, sports teams, or our infamous annual Haymarket Awards. There is a relaxed vibe in our offices and we give you the tools to work flexibly, move around our environment freely and collaborate with your colleagues.
