Reporting directly to the Marketing Manager, you will drive and support marketing activities specifically relating to schools and groups visits, memberships and secondary revenue streams, through both traditional and digital activity.

Currently attracting 580,000 visitors each year, we’re at a very exciting stage of development as we hit 5 years into a 20-year, £55million masterplan. This masterplan will see us develop new habitats for a refreshed animal collection and enhanced visitor experience and place us firmly on the map as a destination of choice for a fun-filled educational day out. It’s the reason why we’re transforming at such a pace.

What will this role of Marketing Officer entail?

  • Assisting in the on-time delivery of marketing activity across all channels with the purpose of increasing activation, retention and loyalty
  • Driving and delivering monthly CRM programme for both acquisition and retention activity, reviewing and making suggestions for improvement in key metrics (Open rate / Click rate / Click to open)
  • Updating key areas of the website, and utilising Google Analytics to better understand conversion, website traffic and quickly identifying any changes
  • Supporting the Marketing Manager in the development and delivery of a rolling marketing plan to increase schools visitation, increase membership renewals and increase secondary spend
  • Contributing fresh ideas on how to make campaigns more effective and deliver further improved results

  • Exceptional organisational skills with the ability to multitask whilst working to tight deadlines
  • A creative flair with an analytical mindset

The ideal candidate will be qualified to degree level, ideally within business or marketing, or CIM qualified, although this is not essential.

All employees must ensure that our visitors always experience excellent customer service and therefore must be willing to give operational support to any department during exceptionally busy times.

What will I receive in return?

As Marketing Officer you’ll receive a salary of £24,000, along with fantastic additional benefits including 31 days holiday per annum (inclusive of bank holidays), enhanced 5% company pension contribution,  a staff membership card giving you free entry to the Zoo on your days off and discounts in our retail and food outlets, and free onsite parking.

You’ll be employed on a permanent contract, working 37.5 hours per week, 9am to 5:30pm Monday to Friday. Due to the nature of our organisation you may be required to work occasional weekend days (not expected to be more than 4 occasions a year).
