Groof. is a champion of startups and small businesses, with fuss-free marketing services designed specifically to help theses businesses establish their brands, attract customers and fuel their growth.
Our clients work in a multitude of industry sectors (alcoholic drinks, technology, print management, transport and more…) and come from across the UK. We are also establishing an international presence with clients as far afield as the USA, Australia and New Zealand.
We’re looking for a Digital Marketing Executive to join our thriving business, based in the heart of Liverpool’s Baltic Triangle. This role is perfect for someone who’s hungry for success, wants to carve their own professional path and is looking for an opportunity to progress fast and take on more responsibility as our team grows.
The Digital Marketing Executive’s Role
The Digital Marketing Executive will be responsible for:
- liaising with our clients, understanding their requirements and developing their marketing plans
- developing engaging and interesting campaign ideas to meet client requirements and executing these
- coaching and supporting clients with digital marketing approaches, as part of integrated marketing efforts
- being a key team player, leading the digital agenda and keeping the team up to speed with changes and developments in this area
We’re looking for a Digital Marketing Executive with skills and experience in the following areas:
- Search advertising
- Paid social media advertising
- Influencer recruitment and influencer marketing
- Email marketing
- Working knowledge of WordPress and Adobe Creative Cloud applications (desirable)
- eCommerce experience, ideally with WooCommerce (desirable)
- HubSpot (and other marketing automation)(desirable)
Ideally, the Digital Marketing Executive should have 1-2 years’ experience in a similar role and a degree-level qualification is desirable (but definitely not a requirement). Experience in either agency or client side B2B or B2C roles is welcomed. Additionally, some past exposure to campaign planning and budgeting will be advantageous.
What We Value: Attitude over Aptitude
Applicants with demonstrable track record and results will be at an advantage, of course, but it’s important to note that we value attitude over aptitude in our business and we’re not necessarily looking for ‘finished article’.
We promote creativity, individualism and professionalism at work; so our team get a lot of space and flexibility to work how suits them. We have a flexible work environment (we believe work fits around life, not life around work) and we place emphasis on professional responsibility, not micromanagement. Therefore, the right candidate will be a self starter, comfortable working as part of a small team but also able to grasp work and run with it. An entrepreneurial spirit and a hunger for knowledge is definitely welcomed, as is a good commercial mindset.
This is a role where personal and professional growth will be fast-paced and future-facing.
What’s On Offer and How to Apply
The role is based in our Liverpool office, right at the heart of the Baltic Triangle. The role is full time – 37.5 hours per week – and permanent (although all new team members undergo a standard, 3-month probationary term with us).
The salary for the role is £25,000 per annum, plus workplace pension, a discretionary bonus and an assortment of regular but informal team perks and treats. You’ll also get a company laptop and we’ll pay a 50% contribution towards your monthly phone bill (after all, who needs two phones?).
