As a Marketing Assistant within the Central Marketing team at Barchester, your goal will be to generate enquiries, increase occupancy for our homes, and reinforce our reputation as a premium care provider – and you’ll do that in a number of ways. You’ll help us market our care homes through a range of print materials. We’ll need you to take ownership of our web-to-print system, which ensures our homes have the right support materials, printed collateral and promotional items. You’ll also contribute to the smooth-running of our systems and processes, budget control and reporting, as well as making sure our communications are always clear and on brand.

Your specific responsibilities as a Marketing Assistant at Barchester will include taking ownership of our Marketing Plan (especially in terms of our spend and results) and delivering a range of offline local marketing campaigns accurately and on deadline, including press advertising, sponsorships, signage and event support. You’ll manage requests for home-specific brochures, creating copy for the overview, working with our design agency and liaising with our print agency. Your role will also involve making sure we have the right stock levels to meet demand, and sourcing promotional materials for annual events like Carers’ Week. This is a fantastic opportunity to work on a wide range of marketing campaigns and initiatives as part of a fast-paced team.

To join us as a Marketing Assistant at Barchester, you should have administration experience and a proven ability to work on and deliver several different projects at the same time. That means solid organisational and prioritising skills are a must, and we’ll also want to see a proactive, self-motivated approach – you’re someone who’s full of initiative. Meanwhile your excellent communication and interpersonal skills mean you’ll be confident working as part of a team. If you have a degree or previous marketing experience, that would be an advantage, but isn’t essential.

Beyond that, we’ll want to see strong attention to detail and a can-do approach – you’ll be happy to turn your hand to a range of different tasks. You’ll be based in London, but because we’ll need you to travel to our care homes throughout the UK, flexibility is also important.

As well as a competitive salary, we can offer you impressive benefits which would include: a bonus, contribution pension scheme, and free training and development. You’ll have plenty of opportunity to grow your career in a large organisation with a warm and supportive environment.

If you’d like to use your project and change management skills in an organisation that provides the quality care you’d expect for your loved ones, this is an empowering and rewarding place to be.
