Marketing Executive at Sawley Waterside & Marina

Job Description:

This is one of those roles that requires real passion and enthusiasm - that’s not difficult when we’re talking about boating, waterside life and the great outdoors!

We’re a consumer-facing leisure brand in a growth phase - with strong brand foundations and exciting times ahead (maybe with you!). Our diverse collection of marinas each has their own unique personality and character, and they all have a real commitment to helping our customers discover the best of waterside life.

  • Working across the marketing mix to establish the right marketing materials for the job at hand and generating content and assets appropriate for the channel and audience, whilst adhering to industry regulations such as GDPR.
  • Hatching exciting new ideas for compelling content that garners attention and raises awareness of our brand and revenue streams, stimulates interest and engages both existing customers and prospects.
  • Managing the day-to-day functions of the marketing department including – dealing with enquiries, ensuring our marinas have the marketing collaterals they need and monitoring social media and email inboxes
  • Taking an active role in recommending and acting upon opportunities to enhance the customer journey and increase conversion of enquiries
  • Maintaining the business websites and working with our digital agencies to seek new ways to increase rankings, traffic and enquiries
  • Supporting the collection of customer insight to inform acquisition and retention strategies
  • Taking on new project challenges as the business evolves
  • Attending key tradeshows where required
