Marketing Executive

Active Business Communications is an IT, Mobile and Telecoms Service Provider with ambitious growth plans. 

We have an exciting opportunity for a Marketing Executive to join our Sales and Marketing team – this role reports to the Sales and Marketing Manager so it is closely aligned to the needs of our sales function.

We’ve just started a journey to redefine our vision, so this is a really exciting time to join the company and help shape its destiny. This role will cover the full marketing mix as we relaunch our go to market proposition. Lead generation is the name of the game, but as all good marketeers know that’s only part of the story.

Principle Responsibilities

  • You’ll have the opportunity to feed into the quarterly campaign plans, use your insight and experience to help develop our activity schedule.
  • Once you’ve helped to come up with our activity plans then you’ll be responsible for implementing them across the full mix using our agency and CRM platform Hubspot.
  • It’s all about the numbers so careful analysis of campaign performance will be critical, as will taking learnings forwards to the next round of activities.
  • We love our customers, and you’ll need to be able to manage them and their data- so excel will be your best friend as you draw insights and help drive the activity plans.
  • We use a CRM system called Hubspot – this is the centre of our universe so you need to be proficient either in its use or a similar CRM system – we take our workflows and data management very seriously
  • There’s a lot of writing in this role – whether it’s blogs, tweets, monthly newsletters, product collateral or new webpages you’ll be producing insightful content on a daily basis.
  • Agency briefings are a dark art form, one which you’ll master to get the best out of them.
  • You’ll own our social media calendar – so  running it can feed into, manage, monitor and refine it
  • There’s no point doing any of this unless we can shout about it, so presenting our performance to the wider business on a regular basis and gathering and acting on feedback is essential.
  • And then there was Brand, oft forgotten but best not left out – you’ll help to drive it forward, love it and look after it, making sure it’s applied in the right way not too little, not too much
