We are looking for an organised marketer with a can-do attitude to fit into a small but perfectly formed team.
This newly created role would suit a professional looking for a step up from their first marketing job and wishing to gain experience; for the right candidate there will be the chance to grow the role and have ownership of all marketing activities in time.

You must be creative with the ability to write original and engaging copy about our products and services, so knowledge about software and technology will be an advantage. You must have an eye for design and awareness of online functionality as our website will be maintained and continually improved by you too.

You must have excellent communication skills and at least 2 years’ experience in a sole marketing role. A professional qualification is desirable but not essential as we believe in hiring people based on their ability and attitude. Evolve is an SME which means you must be open-minded about the range of tasks you may be required to be involved in; if you are used to and enjoy working for a large corporate where you can hide at the back of the building, this role may not be for you.

With an organised approach to tasks and willingness to work on your own with some direction, you should be confident in your abilities but always prepared to admit it when you’re not sure and ask for help if you need it.

You must be tech-savvy with experience of working with Microsoft applications, marketing automation platforms, common social media platforms, Web CMS and preferably Adobe design packages or equivalent. A good understanding of SEO and online marketing is essential and as we are a software business, any experience of this industry would be an advantage.

  • Flexibility in approach to tasks and needs of the business
