If you have a passion for social media and digital marketing and like the sound of working in a dynamic, growing business where you can really make your mark, we’ve got the perfect job for you.
Saddleback is a distributor and source of the finest road cycling and MTB products and we need a new social media/marketeer to join our expanding marketing team. You’ll be taking the lead on planning and posting across our social channels to share the stories of the business, our brands and products. You’ll work with our marketing manager and graphic designers to create attention-grabbing assets, post to style, boost to budget and analyse social campaigns to continually improve our reach.
You’ll also take charge of our digital advertising campaigns – identifying opportunities for ads, working with the team to create outstanding assets and maintaining relationships with media outlets to ensure ad deadlines are managed and met.
There will also be the opportunity to be involved in video, photography and other types of content creation and broader marketing duties including attending events.
This is a very varied job role and will suit someone with an organised mind whose brain can leap from one project to another without breaking a sweat.
