£23 – 25k, plus generous benefits (Lake District)

We’re looking for a bright and creative Marketing Content Creator / Copywriter to join our growing marketing team based at our Lake District head office.  This hands-on team helps us hold onto our No.1 spot by keeping our customers up-to-date with the latest CGP news.

As a Content Creator, you’ll promote new and existing products by designing striking printed marketing materials, engaging emails and much more.  We send out over 400,000 mailshots each year to customers so there’s always plenty of variety.  You’ll:

  • Write, design and coordinate a wide range of marketing materials
  • Translate key messages into CGP’s friendly, confident brand style
  • Create eye-catching graphics and clearly laid-out pages
  • Proofread materials carefully before submitting them for approval

You’ll work closely with our commercial and operational teams, so you must be a great communicator who thrives on working with people at all levels.  You’ll love taking responsibility, be completely flexible and super-organised.  In particular, you’ll:

  • Be excited about using your creative skill and flair with words
  • Have a genuine interest in marketing (ideally a bit of experience already)
  • Work well under pressure and to tight deadlines
  • Be upbeat and receptive to feedback from colleagues

If you already have a bit of Adobe Photoshop experience, that will be a big plus too!
