Marketing Manager at Sawley Waterside & Marina

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!)

We need a driven Marketing Manager with a ‘can-do’ attitude - someone who fits seamlessly into our small and friendly team, that thinks life is better by the water.

And the reward is a fulfilling role, with a real opportunity to make a positive difference to our business, and the best bit – you get to work by the waterside at Sawley marina and travel to our other 28 unique locations too.

Job Description:

As Marketing Manager, you’ll not only make a meaningful contribution to the future success of Aquavista but will also explore a breadth of marketing skills across the marketing mix – with a focus on digital marketing to drive mooring enquiries for our marinas.

We’re proud to be the biggest group of marinas in the UK and we’re excited about our future. We have a diverse collection of marinas each with their own unique personality and atmosphere, yet all with a clear ambition and a real commitment to helping our customers discover and enjoy the best of waterside life. Our crew play a vital role in this.

You will be a confident, commercially minded marketing manager with hands on experience of managing simultaneous projects from concept to delivery. 

Being results orientated, you’ll have solid knowledge of evaluation techniques, specifically with a history of success with digital, social, email and CRM projects, and be as comfortable and motivated working independently as well as part of a team.

Working with the Head of Brand & Marketing, you’ll create and deliver the marketing plan which:

  • Supports the achievement of sales goals across all products (moorings, boat sales, floating homes and retail sales)
  • Meets all revenue, occupancy and EBITDA objectives
  • Builds the Aquavista brand, reputation and awareness of all business products through management of a wide variety of marketing channels and customer touchpoints
  • Enhances customer experience through communication and engagement which is clear, concise, consistent, factually accurate and reflective of brand values
  • Utilise digital presence to build positive brand sentiment and awareness, and generate leads, conversion and engagement

Acting as champion of the brand, this role ensures consistency in brand delivery across all touchpoints online and on-site at our marinas; whilst also ensuring the business remains focused on the delivery of the Aquavista values, with the knowledge that our operational teams bring the brand to life.

We’re a people business, so managing relationships are key to the success of this role - internal and external stakeholders, agencies, and partners to deliver business and marketing objectives.

This role is a hybrid role with an expectation of a minimum of 2 days based at the Aquavista Support Centre, Sawley Waterside & Marina, Long Eaton. Must be able to travel to other marinas when required. The role reports into the Head of Brand & Marketing.
