About Embark Group
Embark Group is a full-scale retirement solutions provider. We are committed to acquiring, developing and holding - for the long-term - a range of financial services businesses in the UK and internationally. As an investor we look for wholly-owned, minority interest and joint venture investments that can generate value independently or in concert with other assets in our portfolio.
We look for businesses that possess the capacity for scaled growth, a proven presence in their chosen market segments, strong people with the right values, and most importantly that offer an opportunity for us to add value through digital delivery.
Our approach centres on four primary enablers: our expertise, access to leading technology, focus on consumers, and capital. More than anything, we build safe and recurring value for all of our stakeholders, customers, partners, employees and shareholders.
As a Digital Marketing Manager, you will be responsible for the creation, execution and development of a mixture of digital, social media and traditional marketing programmes for the Embark Group and its market brands. Your role will involve the design, development and implementation of campaigns alongside the Head of Digital Marketing.
You will work as part of a small but highly visible team and you will focus on leading and delivering marketing initiatives aligned with our growth priorities. As an experienced marketer, you will be creative and innovative, and able to communicate key messages to a diverse audience. You will understand the commercial outcomes sought and translate this into marketing activity. The role requires you to have excellent influencing and communication skills in order to be credible and make an impact on senior stakeholders, as well as the ability to demonstrate a thorough understanding of the Group’s strategic business drivers.
You will be required to create and/or curate content in the form of video, blogs and thought leadership pieces, and will be responsible for pushing this out on our social media channels and Employee Engagement App.
You will be enabled, and expected, to independently seek opportunities to develop and enhance the Embark Group brand and will have a passion to learn and develop. Our goal is to be the leading digital retirement solutions provider in the UK, front of mind for target clients and strategic partners. We plan to set the standard and drive the agenda for our profession - so you can be sure of a challenging and exciting career.
