Twycross Zoo is an award-winning conservation charity and rapidly growing visitor attraction and we are seeking to appoint an experienced marketing professional to join the Marketing team.
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?
What will I need to be considered for this Marketing Officer vacancy?
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).
More about us:
We’re at the forefront of conservation, education and research, and have a strong commitment to our award-winning education programme which aims to increase the level of awareness, knowledge and understanding about the animals and their plight in the wild.
At Twycross Zoo you’ll be part of an evolving and progressive organisation, with staff engagement at its very core. We offer a diverse range of roles and are committed to the fundamental approach of equal opportunities in employment. Our team strives to educate and inspire everyone to care about, and therefore contribute to saving, the other species with which we share our planet.
We’re located in Atherstone, Warwickshire (on the A444, which is easily accessed via the A5 and the M42 Junction 11).
