Job Vacancies

Marketing Executive

Closing date: Aug 26 2022

The Cyber Scheme is an examination and training body authorised by NCSC (The National Cyber Security Centre) to assess and accredit cyber security professionals. The business has changed beyond recognition in the last year, expanding to in-house training, education, liaison and collaboration with thought leaders and technical specialists, and the building of an innovative sponsorship scheme through which we aim to influence the future direction of the cyber security industry.

Due to this expansion we are now looking for a switched-on marketing executive to join the sales and marketing team, helping us develop communications, map out marketing opportunities and get involved in the strategic direction of this agile, fast paced business.

The role will include the creation and analysis of marketing and social media campaigns, updating and improving content on our website, managing trade events, interviews and speaker opportunities, writing blogs, newsletters and social media posts and engaging with influencers via networking and outreach. You will be good at time management and organisation, and happy to work independently as well as closely with our Sales and Marketing Director. You will hopefully demonstrate an ability to brainstorm and generate ideas, think creatively and to be able to multi-task. You will be working within a small dedicated marketing team and alongside the directors, finance dept and technical experts that make up the rest of the company. You don’t need to know about cyber, but a healthy curiosity as well as a desire to learn on the job is a must.

Candidates will ideally have 1-2 years experience in a marketing executive role, and be familiar and proficient with office tools including Office 365, CRM, web development and analytics.

Sounds like a broad mix of skills, but we’re not expecting anyone to have all of the above from day one – one of the most exciting things about this role is that it will develop, change direction and mature as we grow.

On offer is a salary in the range of £24-27k dependent on experience, pension scheme, private health cover, 28 days annual leave, laptop and phone. Location is in our brand new offices in the centre of leafy Cheltenham, and we’re aiming for a mix of office, hybrid, and remote working which is flexible and designed to suit the team.

If that sounds exciting, please contact our marketing director Debi McCormack debi@thecyberscheme.org with a covering letter and cv.
