Digital marketer

Home based or hybrid

Full time

Benefits include:

  • flexible working
  • professional development
  • health insurance
  • a staff perks scheme.


Use your skills to make a difference

This role is an exciting opportunity to use your skills to make a difference in the work (and lives) of millions of people across the globe.

You’ll use and develop your technical and analytical skills to help more people discover the connection between the words we read and write and what we think and do. Because it’s only then that we can help those individuals and organisations transform how they communicate. The result? Less stress and wasted effort, fewer misunderstandings, better relationships and more success.

What you’ll do

This is the perfect role for someone looking to use and develop a broad set of skills in digital marketing. You will work closely with the marketing manager to:

  • analyse, update and improve website content to increase the conversion rate
  • work with consultants and contractors on discrete or ongoing projects, such as for conversion rate optimisation, accessibility improvements and technical SEO
  • set up automated email sequences and other campaigns in our marketing automation tool, HubSpot, monitoring the results and suggesting improvements
  • manage our HubSpot database to ensure we are getting the most out of our data and adhering to GDPR requirements
  • manage website updates and upload content
  • create and optimise landing pages
  • set up PPC campaigns in LinkedIn and Facebook, and analyse and report on performance
  • conduct market research, surveys and interviews
  • populate our organic social media accounts with content
  • support ad hoc research
  • assist with gathering and analysing analytics data to help inform content strategy.


Our purpose

The entire working world now relies on communication through the written word. We’re far more likely to email or message each other than we are to talk.

Every day, we send and receive more than 319 billion emails. Instant messaging, live chat and posting on social media occupy much of our working days. And that’s on top of the millions of reports and other documents that most organisations rely on to get things done.

But all this activity is hidden in plain sight, so it doesn’t get the attention it should – especially as it goes wrong all the time. Like the instant message that accidentally infuriates a colleague or the waffly email that’s deleted on sight. Think of that impenetrable letter from your insurance company, the report that fails to convey critical information and the proposal that doesn’t win the business.

At Emphasis, we help organisations tackle all these challenges and more. We are the UK’s number-one provider of business-writing training and one of the world’s leading communications specialists.

Our clients include Premier League, Alzheimer’s Research UK, Barclays, JP Morgan, 10 Downing Street, Deloitte, the United Nations and many of the world’s biggest law firms. To date, we’ve helped more than 80,000 people develop first-class business-writing skills, working with over 1,000 client organisations worldwide.

Despite that, we’re still a well-kept secret. And as the world becomes ever-more reliant on writing instead of talking, now is the perfect time to join us and help change that.

Essential skills and experience

To be successful in this role, you will need all of the following:

  • at least two years’ proven work experience in a similar digital role
  • evidence of a strong technical and analytical mindset
  • a passion for learning and developing your skills
  • a desire to maintain up-to-date knowledge of latest trends and best practices in digital marketing
  • experience with CRM software (eg HubSpot), CMS platforms (eg WordPress) and MS Office.


Desirable skills and experience

The following would also be a distinct advantage:

  • experience delivering digital campaigns
  • experience with Google Analytics, Facebook Ads Manager and Google Ads
  • SEO experience
  • knowledge of basic HTML and CSS.

(A liking for puns is also very welcome.)
