Head Office Marketing Graduate

The details

Newton’s continued growth is a testament to our proven approach and the success of our client work, but we are not ready to stop there. We are building on this by investing in and expanding our marketing team to meet the challenges of the next phase of growth. The potential of this is hugely exciting as it will set Newton on the right course to double in size over the next few years. Our current Marketing team enjoys marketing a thriving business that has an inspiring and tangible impact for our clients. Joining us as Marketing Graduate will see you contribute to this success...

Joining our Marketing Team in our Head Office at a time where we are growing on average 20% per annum, will enable you to grow your career just as fast! This role will be based in our Head Office. We offer a hybrid working arrangement, balancing home working, office working and travel for internal and external meetings and events. You’ll join us in Sept 2023, but we encourage you to apply as soon as possible to be best placed in securing your offer with us. 

What is the role?

Joining our Marketing team in this role will involve rotating around the four areas of our marketing team: Defence and Infrastructure markets, Public markets, Consumer markets, and Newton brand. As part of our graduate programme, you will undertake 6 months placements across 3 of these areas. Through helping to create impressive marketing campaigns or developing our events series, you’ll be instrumental in delivering our business growth objectives.

These rotations allow for you to seize the opportunity to gain a wide range of commercial experience in an entrepreneurial growing business. Progressing through these placement rotations, you’ll likely gain an aptitude and desire for one cluster, and you’ll be able to progress in this function after 12-18 months.

We think it’s a great opportunity for someone who is passionate about beginning their career in marketing. This role will help kick start your career, in an environment that you’ll quickly learn new skills and add extensive value from day one.

Some example role responsibilities you will own include:

  • Working within the marketing team and alongside business leaders to help create and support thought-provoking and engaging multi-channel marketing campaigns that build our brand and measurably contribute to Newton’s pipeline of work.
  • Playing a role in overseeing and delivering our events series, both online and in-person, helping us to successfully meet our business development objectives
  • Forming part of teams that shape and create our content including presentations at events, videos, case studies, award entries and social media campaigns.
  • Work with our business leaders to support with targeting opportunities, market research and bids, tenders and decks for business development
  • Liaise with and manage relationships with external marketing agencies, including designers, printers, PR, social media and industry associations.
  • Be a strong advocate for our marketing approach across the Head Office and wider business

These onboarding sessions will include Presentation Skills, Excel training and networking with the other graduates in your cohort. Beyond your induction, your development will continue. You’ll have a dedicated and consistent Development Manager to support your career progression, receive regular appraisals and annual pay reviews. You will also have a Line Manager, who will be available to give you guidance and support throughout your learning journey with stretching projects and on-the-job feedback.

We offer a highly competitive salary and our generous benefits package includes Life Assurance, Income Protection, pension contributions and 25 days’ holiday.
