This company is a digital publisher whose vision is to be the most inspiring, authentic and trusted resource for getting active outdoors. Following strong growth over the last 3 years and completion of the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses programme, they are going through a transformation. As part of this they are looking for an exceptional digital marketing person to join the team to support delivery of their growth plan over the next 3 years.

Do they offer what you are looking for?
They are a small, focused team with a big vision for getting people active outdoors and you'll be expected to make a significant contribution towards achieving that vision. You'll join them because you share their passion for the outdoors and a desire to spend your life working on something meaningful.

Benefits include good basic salary, bonus, private health care, pension, childcare vouchers, 23 days holiday, free events plus early finish Fridays. You will be based at their fantastic new rural office in the Yorkshire countryside just 5 mins away from the A1 near Boroughbridge - an easy commute from Leeds, York, Harrogate, Wetherby & Ripon. No city-centre tower blocks, no traffic queues, free on-site parking, plenty of fresh air and a shower for cyclists and runners!

Are you who they are looking for?
Their values underpin everything they do: they inspire their readers to get active outdoors at the same time as working relentlessly to achieve a return on investment for their advertisers. They keep things simple, impartial and authentic so that they are trusted. You will be an energetic, motivational individual who is able to nurture and lead a creative and collaborative team.

What's the role?
Your role will be to own all aspects of marketing, working with clients ranging from household names such as Virgin Sport, BHF and Intrepid Travel to small owner-managed businesses across the UK, Europe and worldwide.

You will report to the Founder and be a member of the Core Team which governs the overall leadership of the company. This is a strategic role with a strong emphasis on maintaining a hands on approach to all aspects of marketing.

You will manage a small digital marketing team and ensure all team members are appropriately proficient & motivated to perform to the best of their abilities, while being encouraged to develop their skills. You will foster in-house skills rather than pay external agencies which means you will need to be creative with a high level of technical expertise and the discipline to keep up to date on digital trends.

You will work closely with the Head of Content to help transform their existing audience and subscribers into a growing, vibrant and engaged community.

You will work closely with the Head of Advertising to ensure that they maximise the return on investment for all clients who advertise on the website so that they retain their business.

Join them on their mission to get more people active outdoors.
