Marketing Assistant – 6 months internship
Berry Bros & Rudd, the world’s oldest and finest wine and spirits merchant are looking for a Marketing Assistant to join their international, boutique, Brand-to-Consumer Spirits business. This is a fantastic opportunity for a marketing student, or a recent graduate, who is looking to develop their marketing career further and gain some valuable experience working for a growing and dynamic business. The position is on a part-time basis (minimum 16 hours a week, flexible schedule) for 6 months, based in our London Spirits office, which is located on Sackville Road, near Piccadilly Circus.
Joining a small team, the successful candidate will be responsible for providing adequate support to the marketing team to ensure smooth running of specified tasks for several key brands, and ad hoc projects. Some of these brands will include The Glenrothes Speyside Single Malt Whisky, No.3 London Dry Gin, Berrys’ Range of Fine Spirits– which include whisky, cognac and Armagnac- and The King’s Ginger- a high strength liquor formulated for King Edward VII in 1903.
Key responsibilities within the role will include: keeping the brands websites up-to-date with new product pages, video and news, evaluating social media on a regular basis, working with local and international distributors to ensure local plans are in line with global brand strategy, liaising with creative agencies, PR reporting, developing point-of-sale materials and co-ordinating brand and market needs. Other activities will include: monitoring the customer e-mail enquiries and responding to them in a timely fashion, processing and filing invoices and providing general administrative support to the marketing team.
We are looking for someone highly ambitious, with great communication skills (both verbal and written) and with a creative mind. Whilst there are no set working hours for this role, a high degree of flexibility is required and the successful candidate must be highly organised and reliable, and confident that they can achieve their objectives at work while fulfilling other commitments (i.e. study requirements if candidates are still at university). It is imperative that the successful candidate has a positive and proactive attitude at all times, to ensure that we continue to provide the best possible levels of service both internally and externally.
Candidates must be at graduate level, or in the process of completing a business related degree, preferably in marketing (CIM certificate / diploma would be an advantage). Experience of copywriting and proofing is essential, and a solid understanding of Social Media is desirable.
