Marketing Executive Jobs
Supporting the Marketing Manager, the Marketing Executive is involved in project management, budget control, PR, liaising with suppliers and launching new campaigns. All in all a very varied position and the ideal candidates are degree educated and have some form of marketing qualification. Other job titles include Digital Marketing Executive and Online Marketing Executive.

Job description

The role of the Marketing Executive (sometimes referred to as Marketing Officer or Marketing Co-ordinator) is to help devise and implement a marketing campaign for a particular product or service offered by their employer.

The first step in any marketing campaign is planning and the Marketing Executive will be expected to work alongside colleagues to determine what the campaign needs to achieve and how it needs to be delivered. Once this has been established, the different elements of the campaign need to be implemented - this can include arranging advertising through a variety of different channels, organising promotional events, co-ordinating PR, co-ordinating direct mail and e-marketing and the production of marketing material to distribute to the target market. It's quite often a fun, challenging and extremely varied working environment.

Most businesses have some sort of marketing function or department and the nature of the job will vary from employer to employer. Whatever your role, some typical daily duties might include:

  • Liaising with colleagues to discuss overall marketing strategy and upcoming campaigns.
  • Researching new advertising/promotional opportunities.
  • Preparing and proofreading marketing material.
  • Regular liaison with printing and graphic design suppliers.
  • Organising promotional events or photo shoots.
  • The maintenance of direct mail/email databases.
  • Measuring the effectiveness of individual elements of campaigns.
  • Extensive competitor analysis.

Qualifications

Quite often you'll need to be degree educated and sometimes employers prefer a relevant degree subject such as marketing or business studies. There are a number of supplementary courses offered by the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) and gaining any of these qualifications would enhance your career prospects, though essentially many employers look for experience over any formal qualifications.
