Brand & Digital Marketing Manager

If you live and breathe digital & brand marketing and are truly passionate about what you do, this is an exciting opportunity to really make a difference to growing the Busy B brand, sales of £2.5 million (circa) this year.

The role will be based at their office in Central Edinburgh and you will be joining a forward thinking company who design clever stationery products which make organising daily life more enjoyable.

Busy B sell direct to consumers via Busyb.co.uk as well as supplying the high street multiples, online retailers, independents and export customers. The role is a fantastic opportunity to own and develop digital marketing as well as playing a key role as part of the senior management team.

You will own all digital and marketing activity so we are looking for a natural self-starting approach and someone who will bring a very commercial focus to managing the brand online and setting and achieving website sales and database targets. You will manage all developments to the Web Site with agency partners and develop the Digital Marketing plan including the creation of all online marketing initiatives.

In addition to their own website you will also oversee Consumer and Trade websites as well as taking responsibility for all consumer marketing materials and working closely with external agencies / designers to launch campaigns.  You will also oversee the Social Media Strategy and set and manage the marketing budgets across on/off line so, all in all, a very full role!

Key to the role will be finding the right blend of experience along with the personality and fit for the business - someone who can thrive in playing a real leadership role for this small but growing team. You will of course have experience of building a brand through digital channels and delivering a successful digital strategy with tangible commercial impact.

You will probably have worked in a leadership or senior management role already and will be comfortable taking on this sort of responsibility. On the digital experience, we are looking for an understanding of back end systems (Magento, Mailchimp), ideally knowledge of SEO and also experience of managing website builds. You will feel at home in a truly creative environment and be able to bring that to your approach in order to deliver commercial results. If you are excited about the brand and ready to join what is a close knit and ambitious team, get in touch today!

"It's been nearly 20 years since I started Busy B in my spare bedroom, and the passion, talent and hard work of our carefully handpicked team have been crucial to helping us grow into a well-loved stationery brand.
These days our home is in a beautiful old space in central Edinburgh, and that's where it all happens – from designing the products, to liaising with manufacturers, selling to retailers, engaging our consumers, evolving our brand, building our website, marketing our products, and chasing up payments.
There's so much to do, and it's all about teamwork. So, for us it's all about finding the right people to join our team. People with commitment, positivity and drive, who will relish exploring the opportunities and tackling the new challenges of growing our business.
