Global Marketing Manager
Experienced Global Marketing Manager with experience of working within the b2b service sector is required for this global engineering specialist.
Our client is an engineering specialist within a very niche service industry and is genuinely one of the most recognised names within the sector. This role is truly a global marketing role; you'll start your day talking to New Zealand and Australia and work your way across the globe ending with America dealing with over 40 branches across 7 main brands. The absolute key element of the role is to manage the brand through a business growth strategy which is currently heavily acquisition focussed and you'll take responsibility for all marketing and PR activities across the whole group, managing a team of 3. Reporting to the Group Managing Director you will have a wide-ranging brief across all marketing disciplines, and the role will require a real mix of strategic thinking, the ability to engage at director level with a compelling brand vision, and the communications and influencing skills to take the senior leadership team with you. This is not a hands-off role though, you will still be expected to develop and implement the elements of each strategy.
What we're looking for
It is essential that you've worked in a global organisation previously with experience within a b2b marketing environment managing a small team. It would be great if you've worked within a service organisation rather than a product, but candidates with the ability to demonstrate they could transition to the sector will also be considered. The environment is pretty unique as you're working with a range of managers and directors across 40 cultures with strong and varying opinions, so you'll need to be able to deal with a range of personalities and have the ability to adapt to your audience and communicate confidently. The organisation is family-owned and the MD remains very hands on, but the actual environment has a very light-touch management feel so you'll need to be capable of running your team autonomously and creatively. Additionally, the subject matter can be quite technical so you'll have the ability to assimilate this within the marketing programme.
What's on offer?
This is such an exciting role with a genuinely down to earth environment which has grown to be a hugely successful organisation. There's opportunity (and expectation) for pre-planned international travel and the opportunity to be instrumental in developing a world-class brand. Salary for the role is between GBP45,000 -GBP60,000 + car + pension with lots of softer benefits (including the most amazing coffee machine!) and brand new offices.
