You will work with colleagues throughout the organisation to identify new business opportunities and build on our current portfolio.

It's a job full of possibilities. Suggesting innovative approaches to grow our commercial income will be a key part of what you do. We will also look to you to create multi-channel marketing campaigns, research new business opportunities and manage relationships with our key affinity partners. Using your excellent analytical skills you will produce reports, which evaluate the success of your lead generation campaigns.

You will demonstrate your enthusiasm and creative thinking when participating in commercial strategy working groups and build strong and effective relationships with stakeholders throughout the RCN Group.

We have a highly competitive pay structure, as well as flexible working, and annual leave of up to 32 days.

Balancing work and life commitments is important to us as an organisation. We are a diverse organisation and understand everyone has different needs. All employees can ask for flexible working and when personal circumstances change we will work with you to find a smarter working solution that suits everyone. In fact, many of our employees enjoy home working, flexible working or compressed hours, enabling them to deliver results with minimum impact to their professional and personal commitments. We also offer generous Maternity, Paternity and Adoption leave packages.

As well as a sound business acumen, to join us you'll need an in-depth knowledge of marketing and demonstrable leadership skills as you will have line management responsibilities for members of the marketing team.
