Our client Lockton is the largest privately owned global insurance broker in the world, with an enviable record of growth over the over the last few years. They operate out of multiple territories and have an international branch network. Dealing with both retail and wholesale clients, Lockton operates a culture that is unique which emanates from the entrepreneurial spirit of its senior management and the flat structure in which the organisation operates.
The business model and the executive team encourage empowerment and visibility, creating a cohesive, professional and focused environment. As a partnership led business, there is more emphasis on collaboration and accountability across all business units.
The UK & Ireland operations have approximately 950 FTE across a network of branches and a further 1000 FTE predominately based out of the Middle East, Asia and Latin America. The Head Office is in London and the majority of the central service functions are based from there.
The business has achieved significant success in recent years with strong organic growth and positive client and employee feedback. The internal culture of the organisation is recognised as a key differentiator and the quality of service delivery is highly rated by clients. To maintain these high standards Lockton is looking at succession planning and is investing in talent for the future.
In line with this growth, Lockton are currently recruiting for a Marketing Aadministrator to work specifically for the Real Estate and Construction business.
Working in support of two more senior Marketing colleagues, you will provide key support on two main areas; event planning / organisation and creation of marketing material.
You will need to be conscientious and hard-working as this will be a busy, hands-on role which will enable you to learn the basics of Marketing and gradually increase your remit. It would be useful but not essential if you have experience using relevant software for example Indesign and/ or Illustrator.
To start with from an events organisation perspective, this could include researching and booking suitable venues for events and dinners etc. Examples of marketing material you will produce include adverts, place names, menus and suchlike. Longer-term this will become more complex and involved and will then also involve assisting in producing tender presentation documents.
This is a fantastic opportunity to join a market leading insurance broker and start your Marketing career in a niche area. Please note that the remit of the role will be admin based with longer term development on a gradual basis. The role would therefore be great for someone with some proven admin experience wishing to undertake something with a marketing bias.
