Marketing and Events Coordinator - Maternity Cover
Megabus needs a friendly numbers person to join us as a Marketing and Events Coordinator - Maternity Cover (9 months with possibility to extend to 12 months)
Have you seen a megabus coach on your travels? Have you ever been on one of our coaches in the UK, USA or Canada? Did you know our mascot is called Sid or that a brand new coach can cost more than GBP300k to buy?
You probably won't know that at megabus, we're obsessed with making coach travel cool again (#makecoachtravelcoolagain). So much so, that we now have sightseeing buses in London, our customers can reserve seats on board and we found time to give our coaches names, like Al Bus Dumbledore, Mega 'n' Harry and Basil Bus. Yes, really. It's true.
If you're interested in joining a friendly team, and enjoy working on a variety of tasks and campaigns, we are the team for you. You'll get to work across a wide variety of marketing activities and channels such as playing a key part in the campaigns team, maintaining brand presence in bus stations and travel shops, to organising events.
The role involves a lot of team work as well as being able to work alone so requires someone who's happy to muck in and be adaptable. You'll need to take responsibility for your projects and run with them to contribute to the overall team objectives.
We are proud to work with charities and to promote a mode of travel that is incredibly sustainable compared to other modes. The quality of the service we provide has improved beyond recognition since we started out just 16 years ago, yet we're still seriously good value.
If you choose to apply to join us as maternity cover on a fixed term 9 month contract (with a possibility of extending to 12 months) you'll be based at our megabus Head Office in Rugby, almost next door to the train station.
