Group Marketing Manager



Excellent Salary and package

We are delighted to be working with James Jones & Sons on a great opportunity to join the business as their new Group Marketing Manager.  This offers a unique chance to join a well-established business who is a market leader with a history dating back to 1838. The company is of a considerable scale already, employing 700 people in the UK across 16 locations and also has interests in the US market, making it a very powerful player in the timber market.

Reporting to the Sales Director and indirectly to the Joint MD, you will work with senior management across all of the UK divisions, to understand and respond to their marketing requirements. Based at their head office in Larbert, the job will involve travel to the companies sites across the UK as well as to customers and industry events. The role comes with a high degree of autonomy and will require a confident personality as you will need to develop positive relationships across the whole business from a senior level down the way.

You will manage all aspects of driving a fully integrated marketing offering include advertising, design, print, POS display, exhibitions and PR. Digital and social media will also be an important part of the mix as you will manage the company website, social media and any e-marketing activity. This is a very hands on role and it is important that you are able to write well, as you will be responsible for all press releases, newsletters, business proposals and presentations. In addition, you will be the company’s key point of contact for the media which could be as wide ranging as National TV contributions to articles for the local paper.

We are looking for an individual who will relish the opportunity to take ownership in a role and with the skill set to deliver across all areas of the marketing mix. We are open to a range of backgrounds and you could be coming with agency and/or client side experience, but ideally you will need to have exposure to a B2B marketing environment. What is vital is that you bring the right level of experience and gravitas, alongside an attitude that is not afraid of delivering in a hands on environment that will give you an opportunity to build a small team.

A very attractive role and for the right individual, a good package including competitive salary, pension and company car.
