Come and work with us

If you’re after a genuinely exciting new challenge, we’re ready and waiting for you. So if you’re positively brilliant at what you do and a decent, nice and honest person, full of initiative and ideas, then we’d love to have you on board. You’ll love it.

We know how important people are to make a business a success. After all, without brilliant, talented, lovely people, you’re just a pile of bricks, a few doors, some desks, manky paper bins, some curled-up Post-it Notes and a biro that doesn’t work.

Our aim is to get the best people we can on board HMS Vigo and to look after them while they’re here. And if they’re good, we never want them to leave (but they can if they want to). We hope they won’t want to leave if they love it that much.

If there isn’t a job you fancy then please still send us your CV and we’ll keep you on file ready for when other opportunities open up.

We are you. We are Vigo Software.

Marketing Officer

Bromsgrove
Full time
Permanent

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an experienced Marketing Officer to join Vigo Software on a full time, permanent basis, based at our office in Bromsgrove.

Do you have strong experience in an all-round marketing position? If so, we want to talk to you! If you come from a logistics or software background, that will be beneficial but not essential.

Working under the direction of the Marketing Director, you will have a hands-on role, developing innovative programs that reach new customers, drive customer retention and revenue growth so you will need to be self-sufficient whilst working within the team to help reach Vigo’s marketing goals and objectives.

Your new role

You need to have at least 3 years in content and copywriting, come from a B2B marketing background and you must be able to event manage, project plan promotional events and manage a range of marketing campaigns.

If you have experience with SaaS that will be advantageous but not as important as your all-round marketing experience.

You should be someone who is flexible, able to manage your own workload but support the team where required. Vigo Software has so much to offer to someone who is motivated and driven to further their career.

Other key duties will include but not limited to;

  • Research market trends and all relevant information that helps senior managers develop marketing plans
  • Assist in creating promotional material
  • Provide fact-checking, copy-editing, and proof-reading
  • Help maintain social media accounts for brands, products, or services
  • Manage a range of lead generation and brand awareness campaigns
  • Website maintenance and development
  • Managing budget

What you will get in return

You will earn a salary of £35,000 – £40,000 per annum, depending on experience.

You will work Monday to Friday, 9am – 5.30pm on a 37.5 working hour week, from our office in Bromsgrove.

Additional benefits include a staff benefit scheme under Sodexo, healthcare scheme, your birthday off, free Spotify account and investment in you and your career.

22 days annual leave, government pension contribution and free onsite parking.
