Digital Marketing Executive


Digital Marketing Executive  

Oceanova is a talent focused organisation that helps organisations, primarily schools, to identify, develop and optimise the full potential of their people. We have 3 key brands, EduStaff, Leadership Matters and the National College of Education amongst a range of other products and services.

We are an eclectic group of thought-leaders, disrupters and pirates. We make waves in the sector and have fun doing it, all whilst providing an outstanding experience for our 2,000 clients and growing.

Oceanova is rapidly expanding, and we are looking for an experienced Digital Marketing Executive to join our central Marketing Team to support each different brand on its own journey.

This is an excellent opportunity to work across a range of products and brands, each with its own message, audience and purpose. However, as part of the Oceanova Group, the businesses are united in their ultimate goal of improving education – there is a genuine sense of fulfilment in the work that we do.

The role is wonderfully varied, each brand sees success from different methods, which gives you the opportunity to bring new ideas to trial across our suite of products. With a dynamic role comes an agile company, and it is important that you can adapt quickly to the changing landscape of education and indeed our changing products in response to this.

The autonomy afforded in this role requires the successful individual to have a good balance of a creative and analytical mindset. Whilst you will have the absolute support, guidance and collaboration from your team (one Manager, one fellow Marketing Executive), initiative is key.

Day-to-day, you will be planning and delivering a range of marketing activity utilising innovative, imaginative and reliable methods. Your longer-term work will involve working with the team on the full-scale group digital strategy, ensuring we stay ahead of the curve whilst in alignment with the wider business and group objectives.

• Work with the team to help devise and manage large scale campaigns to generate enquiries in line with the growth needs of the various brands.

• Manage the production of traditional marketing collateral where required including printed brochures and flyers.

• Maintain an overview of existing marketing activity and utilise research on target audience needs to identify gaps and react accordingly.
