This unusual role sits within an SME with over 50 years' experience in the vending machine and coffee marketplace. With major customers (including the NHS and large corporates) and operating throughout the UK, we have a significant design and marketing support requirement. As such we made the decision 2 years ago to bring (nearly) all design, print and promotional work in-house. An example of this work is "Balmforth & Co" coffee bean branding -a new range of coffee beans - which has recently won a Great Taste award. The company has innovation as a core value, and one of the current priorities for this position is the creation of a branded mobile coffee "wagon" to showcase several machines and coffee offerings.
This role offers the right candidate the opportunity to get really involved with one company and its branding throughout all areas of marketing - graphic design, digital design, print production and general marketing.
You will be involved with designing and art working any marketing materials, including; POS, brochures, bespoke machine and vehicle wraps and visual merchandising. This includes liaison with stakeholders across the business to understand the brief; creating and agreeing visuals; determining the best output method based on needs; proofing and checking for accuracy before print/production; and processing re-cuts and reprints as necessary.
Additionally you will perform daily/weekly computer back-ups; archive files as necessary; maintain all equipment including but not limited to the printer, laminator and cutter.
The role reports to the Marketing Manager and sits within a close team including digital marketing. As such there is scope to develop broader marketing skills for the right candidate who wants to expand their skillset.
Full training will be provided.
