Location: Guildford, Surrey
Company: The Pull Agency www.thepullagency.com
Job Type: Permanent
This is a great opportunity to work with the Pull Agency in a pivotal and senior role.
Pull is a complete, modern creative agency delivering brand development. Pull was born in 2008 and has grown to over 20 people today. We have in-house design, development and digital marketing teams and do our best work when those teams combine to build our clients’ business and brand.
Our brand development work is led by our managing director who provides brand strategy that informs much of our creative design and marketing campaigns.
Increasing demand for brand development work means that Pull needs an experienced marketer to work alongside our MD. While Pull has established brand development approaches and methodologies, and the recruit would be trained in these, we are looking to add a diversity of experience, thinking and approaches to our established brand approach.
The recruit would also take direct responsibility for the Pull Agency’s own marketing planning and ongoing marketing.
The role will probably suit someone who has played a significant role for a mid-large size FMCG brand (although it is possible that they may come from a different background). Candidates will probably have a minimum of 10 years’ marketing experience. Ideally this might include agency experience as well as client-side. However, experience of working in a recognised, disciplined marketing environment is more critical than agency experience. Experience of managing agencies from a client perspective is essential.
- Substantial brand marketing experience with a significant FMCG brand or similar.
- Knowledge of marketing theory and established approaches to analysing brand performance and developing brands.
- Experience in setting up, running and analysing market research.
- Experience in marketing strategy and campaign development.
- Experience in all aspects of digital marketing: search marketing, social media marketing, email marketing etc.
Nice to haves:
- Have worked in an agency
Duties & Responsibilities:
- Developing client pitches for brand development.
- Organising client research programmes.
- Creating client Brand Blueprints.
- Client brand strategy and campaign formulation.
- Pull marketing plan.
- Pull marketing execution.
- Pull Marketing performance reporting.
About the Pull Agency
Most new agencies are born from a small theft. Someone leaves an agency and takes some clients with them. And many digital agencies started as something else. By contrast, Pull was born digital and built from scratch.
Our vision was to build a truly creative digital agency with all the capabilities of the bigger agencies under one roof. We have grown from two people, to a twenty plus people agency, and are characterised by a balance of creative, digital and brand-building skills.
We provide clients with a new sort of agency construct that brings together, with integrity and consistency, the worlds of strategic brand development and design, with technology at the core.
Pull works for big brands that include Schwarzkopf, Right Guard and Pritt Stick, but our sweet spot is challenger brands who need to build brand love and deliver better business performance.
We listen, are an extension of our client’s team, and go the extra mile to deliver solutions that transform.
Pull is based in a charismatic former school house in Shalford on the south side of Guildford. We have ample staff car parking (although many staff cycle to work) and good connections via the A3 and to London via Guildford station.
We take pride in a ‘work hard – play hard’ culture, with an active calendar of social events and both a summer and Christmas party.
We also offer big company benefits including pension, private medical health care, a profit-share scheme, service-related extra holiday days, childcare vouchers and cycle-to-work scheme.
