Digital Marketing Assistant Placement

We now have a placement opportunity for a Digital Marketing Assistant to replace our wonderful Laura, who is moving on as part of her experience with Bournemouth University.

You’ll either be a university student midway through your course in a related subject or a recent graduate.

We're looking for someone who understands how businesses in the professional services sector use LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and other social media to great effect to win new business.

Your task will be to use the social media platforms to engage with our target market / audience and create awareness of what we do.

You'll help manage our HubSpot website and inbound marketing CRM and take responsibility for content creation. Ideally, you'll understand the basics of SEO and how to craft relevant quality content that will be magnetic to Googlebots. You’ll need to be able to write in a clear professional journalistic style appropriate to our target audience.

You’ll be great at researching and copywriting fresh material for our website and for creating our weekly email newsletters. Ideally, you'll have some visual creative skills and strong tech awareness.

You’ll liaise with our freelance SEO specialist (based in Bournemouth) and our web guru (ex-Bournemouth and now living in Norway).

If you have any other great ideas to help our marketing (especially low budget creative ideas) you'd score even higher on our "wizard scale"

This is an open ended placement.. it could lead to a full time position or a long term freelance relationship.

Just now with Covid it’s a Work From Home position, but once we’ve waved goodbye to Covid and returned to a normal life you’ll be able to choose whether to work in our offices (flexible hours, real coffee, cakes… Westbourne is a cool and vibrant place...) or work from home, or anywhere in the world with a good internet connection!

Other details

Contract Type: Temporary

Hours: Part-time, flexible

Pay rate: National Living Wage - Age related

Location: We’re based in Bournemouth, but the position is currently work from home, so flexible
