Hudson is delighted to be working with a rapidly growing, multinational SME in the search for an ambitious, passionate and hands-on Trade Marketing Manager who will lead and develop marketing activity for affinity partners across the UK & Ireland.

This is a role for a self-starter; a really driven individual who tackles challenges head on and who wants to make their mark on a really exciting, growing business. Reporting to the EMEA Marketing Director, it's a crucial and high profile role, which presents an opportunity for the successful candidate to become a real thought leader within the global business.

Key responsibilities:

  • Develop and implement a trade planning process which will align commercial and marketing, and which will deliver optimum revenue against targets
  • Analyse data, both historical and trend and using a variety of tools, to propose a promotional calendar which will optimise conversion and sales
  • Work closely with the commercial team to create seasonal and campaign KPIs
  • Develop plans for existing and new partners that align with commercial revenue targets to maximise traffic and optimises sales
  • Work with the content, merchandising, email, social and brand teams to deliver effective partner coverage
  • Collaborate with the CRM team to deliver best-in-class CRM activity that's closely aligned to trade marketing plans
  • Work closely with the EMEA Marketing Director and EMEA Head of Commercial to develop compelling seasonal campaign presentations to influence partners in respect of the promotional calendar
  • Work closely with the retail team to enhance in-store sales
  • Monitor campaign KPIs and trade marketing metrics, working closely with the Data Science team to implement tracking and reporting across apps, web and mobile
  • Analyse campaign performance and communicate results and learnings
  • Attend and contribute to 'premium' partner meetings to deliver best-in-class partner engagement and to maximise results for partners
  • Manage and develop a small but growing team of ambitious Marketing Executives.

What are we looking for from the successful candidate?

  • Significant experience in a relevant role such as Trade Marketing Manager, Affinity Marketing Manager or Partner Marketing Manager
  • Experience of working for a grocery or mult-category retailer would be useful but isn't essential
  • Strong leadership skills and an ability to influence at all levels; you'll be an open, transparent and confident leader who inspires those around you to perform well at all times
  • Someone who challenges the norm and doesn't take no for an answer; likewise someone who is comfortable being challenged in return
  • A team player with entrepreneurial spirit
  • Strong planning and project management experience, with experience of setting up and embedding new processes
  • Highly numerate and analytical, with a good understanding of web and social analytics tools
  • Good presentation and communication skills
  • Curiosity, resourcefulness and creativity, with good problem solving and decision making skills
  • Absolutely comfortable in a fast paced environment.

Interested? Then apply immediately! The closing date for this role is Monday 11th December.
