Do you have the potential to become
a marketing superstar?

We’re always on the lookout for our next

We are looking for driven, enthusiastic people to support the growth of Ros Conkie’s Marketing Academy through marketing, admin, and sales support. In the long term, you may be seconded to a client’s business to manage their marketing (with our continued support) or you may become a marketing consultant, trainer, and coach at the Academy. No marketing experience is necessary, as we can provide all the training you will need (since that's what we do and we're very good at it!) but a degree and some customer-facing work experience are desirable.

This is an exciting time for our business's growth. Over the last few years, Ros Conkie’s Marketing Academy has grown significantly and we're planning similar growth over the next 5 years. This is a great time to join the team and play an instrumental role in the company’s development. You'll be a crucial part of our small team.

Although the business started as a marketing consultancy, we've developed into a training and coaching business. We specialise in small to medium-sized businesses that sell complex or technical products and services and want to scale up their businesses by implementing efficient, effective marketing.

What will you be doing?

To start with, you'll be using our proven processes and methods to generate leads and support customer retention through marketing and sales activities. When you're trained and ready, you'll also be delivering marketing activities for our clients. And one day, we hope you'll be delivering training and mentoring to our clients, teaching others what you've learned. Initially, most of the tasks will be related to content creation, social media (Linkedin, Facebook, and Instagram), email marketing, and website development with an emphasis on testing and measuring success to continually improve our methods and strategy. There will also be an element of after-sales and customer support, such as collecting customer feedback and sending materials.
You’ll be working as part of our small but growing team. You'll be fully trained and supported, following the training model we used for our first apprentice, Katie Evans, who completed her apprenticeship with Distinction in 2022. The role doesn't have to involve a formal apprenticeship though. If you're not interested in an apprenticeship qualification then we won't force it on you. Whether you join us as an Apprentice or not, you'll start with a period of intensive marketing training. Are you up for a challenge and a steep learning curve?

Working remotely

We don't have an office because everyone in the business works remotely, so this role will also be working from home. But you won't be left "alone". You'll be fully supported with regular Zoom meetings and monthly and quarterly in-person meetings in Bristol/Portishead. 

Working remotely doesn't suit everyone. You need to be self-motivated and disciplined because we need to be able to trust you to get the job done when we're not in the room with you. You need to be able to ask for help when you need it because we may not spot you're struggling otherwise. But if you are struggling, we're here to support you and help you thrive.

Are we a good fit for you?

We can train you in everything about marketing, so the most important thing is that you have the right attitude. You need to be proactive, keen to learn, and open-minded to different ways of working. We deliver high-quality work to our clients so you need to have a strong attention to detail. We also do things differently from the way marketing is traditionally taught, so if you have some prior marketing experience, you may need to throw out what you've learned and do things our way instead of the way you've done it before. If you’re not open to getting out of your comfort zone on a regular basis you won’t enjoy this job. 

We don't like to blow our own trumpets, but this is a really great opportunity for someone to learn, grow and develop into a marketing superstar. We have a wealth of knowledge and experience to share with you so we're looking for "a sponge" who is ready and able to absorb it all and run with it. A lot of the work initially will involve content creation so you need to genuinely enjoy writing content and engaging on social media, or you won't enjoy this job. You should also know that there are a lot of marketing systems and software tools. There seems to be a new one every week and every client uses different stuff so you'll need to be happy picking up new software systems and using them.
