If it helps, unlike a traditional marketing manager, you’re more likely to specialise in making sure the marketing ‘message’ is heard and seen by the target audience. As a result, you’ll be very much concerned with the ‘media’ and the ways to convey your messages.

- Manage staff performance and ensure the team has clear roles, responsibilities and goals 
- Oversee the management of the Marketing and Communications budget to ensure appropriate and effective spend and report on its effectiveness
