Are you ready for an exciting channel marketing role in a dynamic, fast paced, rapidly growing, energetic, and privately owned technology business? If so and the idea of being solely responsible for marketing appeals then read on.

We are a leading supplier of data and connectivity network services and have an enviable reputation for innovation and customer service. Were a people centric business with a clear growth vision and our mission is clear; it’s all about taking what is already a successful and profitable business, led by a dynamic and challenging MD, to the next level.

This appointment is critical to our businesses ability to deliver its strategic and tactical plan so we’re looking for someone talented who is an absolute ‘hands-on doer’! The marketing manager will become a trusted advisor to our sales director and the executive team.

We need someone who can take full responsibility and drive a proactive channel marketing program across a small number of ‘high value – low volume’ channel partners (circa 35). The marketing manager will build strong relationships with internal key stakeholders and ensure that the benefit of being a Convergence Group channel partner encourages customer loyalty, transparency, retention, growth and a great experience.

The role will include product and service positioning, training workshops, campaigns, incentives, reward and recognition and continuous development ultimately resulting in retention and ‘net-growth’. The successful marketing manager will bring passion, energy, marketing flair, fun and creativity to the program ultimately supporting healthy revenue and margin growth.

What you can expect?

Owner-managed business’ culture and dynamics are often very different to “corporate” environments and that’s the case with us. We’re being candid when we say the pace won’t suit everyone.

So why should you be excited about the role and what’s so different about this opportunity?

When you meet the leaders who run this business, their passion, focus, dedication and drive for success will not fail to impress. You will swiftly become part of a bright and committed team comprising talented experts in their own specialist areas, who trust and enjoy working together, who are not afraid to challenge each other and who are driven by a common purpose.

When you join, you’ll be greeted by a small but very dedicated and committed sales team who have done a great job in getting the organisation to where it is today. They’re excited about you joining and helping them continue to thrive!

Who were looking for?

We’re looking for a bright, confident, commercial, collaborative individual who will drive the organisation’s strategic marketing agenda. An overriding sense of commerciality and focus on delivery is key as is a keen eye for detail.

The ideal candidate should have industry experience within an IT, Telecoms or Software background. Candidates should also have a strong digital marketing background with experience of social media platforms and websites.

“Rolling up one’s sleeves” will also be important as you’d expect in a business this size, and we’ll be looking for candidates to demonstrate they can work at pace in a fast moving highly competitive business.

Is it for you?

It will be highly attractive to candidates for a variety of reasons. For example, you may wish to bring your skills and experience from a larger blue-chip organisation to be the number one marketing professional in a smaller, agile and highly commercial driven organisation.

Alternatively, you may already be in a similar role in a smaller business, possibly a successful start-up and be looking to be part of an organisation with an even more ambitious future.

Either way, you’ll need to demonstrate you have played a key role in growing businesses (or divisions) previously and can succeed in an entrepreneurial culture!

So, what will the business offer in return?

Quite simply, the opportunity to be a key member of passionate and successful business which is going places!
