  • Manage your small team to deliver the strategic marketing objectives aligned to the overall business strategy.
  • As with everything in this business, the end-game is to further elevate the customer experience. 
Here’s what it will take:
  • Ideally experience in a franchised retail or services organisation; this may be within a traditional retailer or from within a B2B model.

  • Proven agency relationship management experience and an ability to forge strong, commercially advantageous partnerships with suppliers to ensure genuine partnerships, where expectations are clear and output is consistently measured and continually evolves.
  • You have been responsible for a small marketing budget and the preparation and allocation of such; you get the numbers behind it all.
  • You build a team of high performing individuals and inspire them to deliver over and above, whilst providing an empowered and fun place to work
  • Relationship management expertise and confidence at all levels of an organisation. You are as “at home” presenting to the leadership team as you are at a large company conference.
  • A hunger for delivering a world class Customer Experience and Value Proposition is what gets you excited.
