Marketing executive

Here’s a fantastic opportunity for an awesome marketer with a natural flair for visual content to support the Reading Buses family with a broad range of marketing activities. You will focus on graphic design, copywriting and social media, but there’s even more variety on top.  With a starting salary of around £25k, it’s the perfect next step in your marketing career.

You will quickly learn and progress with hands on involvement in copywriting, graphic design, multi-channel media, internal and external marketing, bus and product information, event management, creative briefing, budget control and lots of other exciting marketing stuff!

Ideally you will be a natural with words – be able to use our tone of voice, write impactful social media, headlines and web copy and have some existing copywriting experience. You will show amazing attention detail and have excellent proof-reading skills. Whilst not a graphic designer role, you will have experience in using graphic design packages and designing amazing artwork that captures people’s attention to help us continue representing our brand in the best ways possible – whilst being supported by our third-party design agency. We’re looking for someone who can stay calm and can 'spin lots of plates' at a time. Your ability to multi-task, prioritise and organise must be top-class.

Reading Buses is an award-winning company with an enviable reputation for innovation and customer service.  Buses might not initially seem like they need a lot of marketing, however, we do things differently than many other bus companies. We like to think we’re a brilliant place to work and we hope you’d think so too!

This role is primarily office-based, but will be hybrid-working for the start due to Covid-19 measures. 

Please apply by email to Caroline Anscombe, HR Director at [email protected] with your 2 page CV and covering letter telling us why you’re the perfect person for the job.

Closing date:  27 January 2021 – but interviews may be held before this date.

We are an equal opportunities employer and want to hear from talented people!
