We're hiring — Marketing Assistant
We’re looking for a kick ass Marketing Assistant who loves the work we do and can help make others feel the same way. At the same time, you’ll grow and develop your own passions and skills along the way.
You’ll work alongside the Client Account team, shaping potential strategies before independently using the teams creative skills and your own creative writing to start talking, shouting, promoting and celebrating the work we do across a wide range of channels. Initially the role will be focussed on promoting Bluegg alone but over time may grow to incorporate live projects, helping widen our client offering.

Ideally you’ll have a qualification in marketing, or some experience, but most of all, you’ll have a great attitude, be determined to progress and love what you do.
Here’s what we’re going to need you to do:
Create marketing strategies, budget planning and creating content
Grow and expand our social presence and interact with followers
Raise our profile
Work with our creative team to write kick ass case studies and blog posts
Research and monitor what others are doing, learn and be relevant
