Who are you?
You will be experienced in the creation of successful campaigns, storytelling and messaging and will have a good understanding of marketing best practices across all channels. Your communication skills – written and verbal – will be excellent and, alongside your superb planning and organisation skills, you do not fear deadlines. Whilst being able to apply your creative mindset, you are as comfortable being analytical to understand, measure and report on targets and impact and to seek continuous improvement. You are a team player, easy to get along with and you take your work – but not yourself – seriously. You thrive on seeing the results of your work positively impact the business and all its stakeholders.
You want to be a key player in the delivery of a best-in-class digital student engagement platform benefitting millions of users worldwide; you want to be part of a team with a purpose; and you want to contribute to the continuous improvement of MSL supporting partner clients and their members.
