About the Employer
Our client is a leading brand in fillers for painters and decorators, building and construction professionals and DIY enthusiasts. The business was established in France in 1938 and remains a family-owned business, with a commercial head office, manufacturing plants and warehouse close to Paris.
In France, this company is the benchmark brand for designing and manufacturing the most expert and innovative solutions in both powder and ready-to-use fillers, supporting professionals with guaranteed long-lasting solutions to improve wall finishes. The company leads the French market with high quality products and user-driven innovations.
They were introduced to the UK 20 years ago, with a UK commercial office in the south-east, providing products to large and small building and painting & decorating merchants as well as some distribution in DIY channels.
What they do
Their UK company has embarked on an ambitious growth plan to grow the filler market for professional customers and grow the brand's sales in all sectors, channels and geographies. They also plan to grow their DIY business by launching new ranges focused on the DIY end user.
This organisation's marketing activity has expanded quickly to support these ambitious business objectives, to grow brand awareness and brand loyalty among professionals and DIYers, and to support their growing key accounts and end-users on a day-to-day basis.
They are doing this through several key marketing activities: They implemented a whole new category plan for the professional market in April 2021.
Alongside this, they implemented a complete rebrand of the company: new logo, new graphics and imagery, clear and explicit brand values. In addition, they are planning and developing end-user insight-driven DIY propositions for launch in 2023.

- Work with the Product Marketing Manager to manage quality issues raised by UK customers. Communicate across functions in the UK and France to ensure issues are understood and resolved.
