About the role

We are seeking a highly creative and motivated Online Marketing Assistant to develop online content and communications, engage with our audience and help to grow our brand. This role reports directly to the Head of Marketing. 

The ideal candidate has fantastic copy writing skills, and an eye for visuals that grab attention while communicating our brand values and aesthetics. An understanding of how to drive awareness and sales through online marketing channels is also critical, along with an up-to-date knowledge of online and social media platforms and trends.
