PR and Marketing Executive
£30,559 - £34,112 per annum
37 hours per week, fixed term until 31st July 2021
Cheltenham Borough Council
Closing date: 27 February 2019 (5pm)
Marketing Cheltenham was launched as a new initiative by Cheltenham Borough Council in November 2017. As part of our place making and growth agenda we have ambitious plans to raise the profile of Cheltenham as a great place to visit, work, invest and study.
We are looking for a multi-talented, energetic PR & Marketing Executive who can help us meet our targets to promote Cheltenham and realise our ambitions. The post holder will work closely with the Manager of Marketing Cheltenham and the Director of Cheltenham BID to deliver the marketing strategy. Building on the work that has already begun with the marketing of the visitor economy, this role will grow to encompass inward investment with an appreciation for the need to attract and retain students and the future workforce.
This role has a wide remit and a limited budget, so it is essential that the person is both creative and resourceful.
There are three main objectives:
1. To create and deliver exciting marketing plans to support the objectives laid out in the 5-year strategy to grow Cheltenham’s visitor economy along with new plans to promote inward investment
2. To work with the Manager of Marketing Cheltenham and stakeholders to deliver an effective marketing operation to ensure a sustainable future which supports the long-term vision
3. To support the Cheltenham BID consumer marketing, much of which is in line with the wider destination marketing
The Marketing Cheltenham team will work between Cheltenham BID and the council’s Municipal Offices, together with agile/mobile working due to the nature of the role. The post holder will be expected to forge strong links with the council’s Communications Team.
The role is initially fixed term to the end of the current BID term; however, subject to success, it is envisaged there will be an ongoing need for the role.
