Vacancy description

The primary role of a Digital Marketer is to define, design, build and implement marketing campaigns across a variety of off/online and social media platforms to drive customer acquisition, customer engagement, and customer retention. We combine Editorial Content, PR, social media and Advertising to achieve our clients’ business objectives.

Energetic self-starter wanted to join a fast-growing international business-to-business technology marketing agency with clients in Asia, Middle East, Europe, and North America.

As part of a young but growing business the applicant will be required to have good writing skills with an interest in writing for business and an ability to have a go and ask questions when needed.

You will be required to create social media calendars, press releases, blog posts, and other written material for business audiences so being comfortable using social media platforms is crucial. We manage the social media channels for a number of B2B clients.

You will distribute press releases and contact journalists to get stories placed, building a rapport with both the B2B and national press.

Your duties will include:

  • Devising marketing content on a variety of marketing and social platforms
  • Researching and analysing information on the digital environment to inform short- and long-term digital communications strategies and campaigns
  • Recommending and applying effective, secure and appropriate solutions using a wide variety of digital technologies and tools over a range of platforms and user interfaces to achieve marketing objectives
  • Reviewing, analysing and reporting data trends using Google systems
  • Delivering excellent customer service to clients
