Marketing and Operations Assistant

23rd August 2018,
Whilst we're a digital agency, this isn't a typical digital marketing role where you'll just be updating clients' Facebook profiles. We need someone to drive forward our own tech start ups as well as our core agency business. And yeah, you'll probably get your hands on some of our exciting clients' marketing efforts too.
You don't need to be a geek, but you do need to be tech savvy. You won't be coding (unless you want to!) but you need to know the difference between a search engine and a browser (to say the least). You need to be up to speed with the latest social networks and how you can leverage them to best effect, but also have ideas for how to imaginatively promote exciting new tools and industry changing projects within the digital world without just relying on big budgets.
As well as spreading the word, you'll be involved with refining a great client journey for these services and products, and keeping existing users engaged and active.
You'll also be helping on our big build projects, updating clients and assisting with populating the content on sites and creating documentation.
Personally, you need to be able to manage your own time and drive yourself forwards. You'll be working closely with a team of professionals but you need to be able to know what you're doing next and not constantly need hand holding. You need the confidence to make decisions and not be afraid to put new ideas out there to the rest of the team. You'll need to take ownership of your own projects and have the professionalism and attention to detail that means the work you put out there is excellent.
We won't load you with scary targets but you will be reporting weekly to a senior colleague, and will need to demonstrate what progress has been made. Everyone at 18a keeps detailed timesheets and so you'll need to show how you're spending your time and that you're putting it to good use. Hours and hours of "twitter engagement" with no actual growth or results won't cut it.
There will be lots of opportunity for continued professional development - heck, every day's a school day. And you'll be encouraged to keep your skills and knowledge up to date by researching the latest marketing tools and concepts out there.
Excellent written English and communication skills are essential as the job will involve plenty of content creation and speaking to people inside and outside of our organisation. Sometimes you will be writing about technical things, so the ability to catch on to new things quickly when they're explained to you is really important.
At 18a, we work hard and we work quickly. And at times over the last decade we have been guilty of falling into the eat - sleep - code - repeat cycle. But we know that this isn't a good way of life, and so we now have fail safes to ensure everyone at 18a gets chance to feel creative and clear headed - which in turn aids productivity.
Things we do:
Salary will depend on experience. Please contact us with your CV and any stories of previous experience, if you've got any. Please please pretty please - no agencies! :) As we mentioned, this role can be part time or full time, with flexible working hours.
