Current vacancies May 2021: We are looking to hire a Senior Awards/Marketing Consultant
Helping businesses enter awards is what we do for a living. This role will enable you to work on entries across a range of industries and clients (including many FTSE 350 companies and major brands).
You’ll be producing accurate, engaging submissions for business awards that will impress the judges and maximise clients’ chances of winning. This client-facing role will see you having your own small portfolio of clients to manage and write for, while also maintaining and growing the portfolio. Therefore, in addition to copywriting, you will be responsible for engaging prospective clients/sales leads, helping your clients to plan the right awards to enter and quoting for work.
Currently this role requires you to largely work from home, with an expectation to work from a shared Bournemouth office once a week alongside colleagues (Covid-19 rules permitting) and, less frequently, to meet up with the whole company at a Brighton-based Head Office. Travel to client meetings is also expected (based largely in/around London).
As a unique organisation, we don’t expect candidates to have had specific experience within the sphere of award entry consulting. That said, if you have experience of writing winning award entries, and/or acting as a consultant in a marketing or PR capacity, then this would undoubtedly strengthen your application.
The following transferable experience and skills are required for the role:
- Copywriting: You’ll be an experienced copywriter, expert at finding the angle in a story and producing persuasive, accurate copy, with adaptable tones/styles. Award submissions also require an understanding of how businesses operate, and the ability to understand and present evidence/statistics in a compelling way (although Boost also has an evaluation team that can support you with this).
- Account management: You’ll be able to build strong relationships with Managers/CEOs/Directors of new and repeat clients, with the gravitas to present and field questions confidently (remotely and face-to-face).
- Project management: You will work as part of a close-knit team, so excellent communication and team working skills are essential, particularly as your colleagues will be home-based/based at other locations.
- Organisation skills: Awards are deadline-driven, so you will need to be able to adhere to strict turnaround times for each project.
Desirable but not essential: The ability to analyse, interpret and present multiple sources of data to draw conclusions (knowledge of Excel would be beneficial).
Salary: £28,000-£30,000 per annum on target earnings depending on experience (comprising a £25-27.6k per annum basic and the rest being a performance-related bonus); pension after three months with employer contributions (currently 3% of basic salary).
