Digital Comms Officer


Published: 20 June 2020

Reference: BCHS682
Location: West Cheshire/Remote
Salary: £30-35k

Aquatic sports and environment company, based in West Cheshire, is looking for a Digital Comms Officer to join their marketing team, working predominantly on social media and blog/article writing.

Reporting into the Marketing Manager, it will be your job to ensure that the good work the company is doing is communicated both to their existing community but also to the wider world. This role is an autonomous one, so you must be someone who is used to working alone and managing your own projects from start to finish. It’s a busy marketing department, so you will take ownership of all the comms projects, collaborating with the web and marketing officers, where needed.

This role can be based on-site (near Chester) or remotely, working from home, although please understand that you will be required to travel to Chester for meetings (normally once per week). 4-day week candidates will be considered, although the preference is full-time.

To be considered for this role, you will have at least 5 years’ experience of marketing communications, with specific experience in digital comms. You will be a social media whiz, understanding the nuances between each platform and how best each is used. You will be a superb writer, able to capture an audience and engage with a variety of people. You will be able to think strategically about messaging and how to engage both with the company’s existing community and prospective customers/members. Any understanding of other digital marketing principles (search marketing, email marketing and web/CMS) would be beneficial, although these disciplines are all managed by another member of the team.

Finally, any experience, qualification or interest in the following subjects would be a distinct advantage (and please highlight this to us in your application):
• Scuba diving
• Snorkelling
• Sailing
• Marine biology
• Ecology
• Environmental issues

This is an excellent opportunity to join this company at a time of real change, when you can make a tangible difference. This is a really important role for the company, having totally moved ‘online’, and there is plenty of personal development for the successful candidate.

Candidates should be able to drive, to be considered for this role, as the office is not accessible by public transport.
