Hybrid working – 3/2
Salary is benchmarked at c45-50k, however, we can look at candidates either side of this depending on experience. Strong benefits and bonus.
Well, what a couple of years it has been!
After all of the ups and downs, it seems that we are finally moving forwards and returning to some kind of normality. It’s been a challenging time for businesses and the teams within them.
We are currently working with a business that has weathered the storm well. They made a profit, their bonus scheme paid out and they continued with their growth plans. Sales have been strong; they have made acquisitions which has meant excellent share price performance and so it’s an excellent time to be part of their journey.
This continued growth and developments into new markets will mean some changes to their business strategy and so the Marketing team requires a commercially astute Website Manager who can take ownership of all thing’s website related.
In terms of the role content, it’s a real mix. Interesting work though as you will be leading on a number of improvement projects as well as contributing significantly to the long-term digital strategy. There is a good base in place, and so this role is all about improvement and optimisation. You will have the support and funding to make the changes required to ensure a best-in-class website performance.
About you – Firstly, you need to understand what it means to be a commercially aware Website Manager and most importantly enjoy operating in this capacity. You’ll understand business and will revel in the opportunity to use your talents to develop a web presence that allows your sales and marketing colleagues to reach their target audiences and maintain position as the industry market leader.
In terms of technical skills, then as many of the following would be great: experienced working across a range of systems for example Umbraco, WordPress, Drupal, Salesforce, Google AdWords, Google Tag Manger, AdRoll, etc. Advanced Excel and Google Analytics reporting skills also of great benefit.
The role requires a mix of skills and so candidates could come from a variety of backgrounds. You’ll need some technical experience, however its very much the middle ground between IT and Marketing, and so what’s important is the ability to understand the web, and then be able to create a project plan for improvement. You’ll work closely with your in-house marketing colleagues and be responsible for bringing in experts (SEO, Adwords etc) when required.
So, if this is what you enjoy, it is certainly worth investigating.
Secondly, you need to have the skills to back up the above. We won’t waste your time by listing all of the skills of a strong Website Manager, as if you are one or on the way to being one, then you’ll already know.
This is a big challenge, and we are looking for a lot, however, in return, you will be joining an organisation that places great emphasis on its people and their ongoing development. The team is highly capable, very supportive and has lots of personality. They work hard, but also enjoy their time and will very much look forward to welcoming you to their team.
