Could this be the job of your dreams?

We believe that the best people deserve to be treated just like that, and as we are looking for someone special we get that to attract you we have to say something special about us and why you should apply to come and work with us. So instead of the usual boring old list of things that you may see on a standard job description we’d like to tell you a few things about this job that may make you click the link below and send us your details.

So here goes…

Firstly – we are a small but perfectly formed digital marketing agency but that doesn’t mean our clients are small. It means we do a lot of different things for some great companies such as Microsoft, Tech Data, and SCC – and sometimes run around with our hair on fire as we work our little socks off to amaze the clients that have taken the decision to invest in us. It can be craaazy busy, but we have a lot of fun and boy do we have scope to propose new stuff. Every day there’s something new to do or learn, or think about.

Secondly – we look after each other, and understand that flexible working might be really important to the right person. So, although we have a full-time role to fill, that doesn’t mean we are not open to suggestions about how that could be delivered. So don’t hold back if you need us to be a bit flexible with what we can do to accommodate you. We’ll go the extra mile for the right person.

Thirdly – our digital services have gone through the roof over the last 18 months as we have focused heavily on how important digital marketing is and really are looking for someone that can really get to grips with our digital services and own, lead and manage the digital team to ASTOUND the clients we work for. This is definitely a role that is all about growth. We are looking for someone that wants to be exposed to learning more about how the business works, and shaping and developing the services we create, market and sell.

Fourthly – we love to travel to events, all over the world.  So not only are we looking for someone who can help us to innovate and stay ahead of the competition, but we are willing to let you spread your wings and fly, fly, fly (to wherever we need to, in order to win, win, win). Do you know we have been attending Microsoft Inspire for 15 years in the US and this year it’s in Las Vegas?? We want our Senior Digital Marketing Manager to come everywhere with us, meet clients (quite often Senior Execs), attend events, engage with partners, you name it we want you out there and tweeting about it!

Fifthly (not sure there is such a word) – well anyway, we have a bonus and share-option scheme in place. So bonuses are all about going over and above, and getting recognised and rewarded for that (which you will have sewn in to your package), and the share-option scheme means that after a qualifying period you get to own a little bit of the company yourself (so if it ever sells, we are all quids-in).

Sixthly (pushing it now we realise) – we want your passion, your commitment, your innovation, your desire to lead, to excite and to amaze – so if you are feeling like you are being held back (and we understand may not quite be the finished article just yet), we want to hear from you, because if you are right for us, we WILL give you a chance to grow. We just want you to be brilliant.

Seventhly (no such word, surely) – we do dress-down Friday, close for a week over Christmas (who doesn’t love THAT?), have regular company days out and socialise together whenever someone will organise it 😊 Zombie Wars anyone???

Now, come on – if this all sounds great to you – then have a look at the Job Description here and send us your CV – what have you got to lose?
