1.    Job description - Digital Marketing Apprentice

About us

Spectronic Camspec Ltd is a small, family run business in Garforth Leeds that specialise in manufacturing and servicing scientific instruments.  We have been doing this since 1971 and our instruments sell all over the world.  We are an equal opportunities employer.

The role

The company has been strong in traditional sales & marketing but now finds a need to employ a person to lead on digital marketing and business development.  We are keen to employ a young person that can grow with the company in this area.

The new employee will report directly to the Managing Director.

The role will start as digital marketing apprentice, with clear career progression to become Digital Marketing Executive in the second year, and ideally leading on to become Sales & Marketing Manager in year three.

As this is a small business you will be expected to join in with various activities as required from time to time, but the main tasks will initially include:

  • WordPress website content maintenance
  • Creation of digital newsletters
  • Monitoring click through to the website
  • Sharing of relevant content on Twitter, LinkedIn, the website and potentially other platforms
  • Monitoring website visitors using existing resources
  • Telephone calls to prospective customers as identified through the above

About you

We are looking for a young, enthusiastic person to join our team and help us to take advantage of digital media to engage with existing and new customers.  No prior knowledge is required of scientific instruments, as product training will be provided.  Similarly, full training in current digital marketing will be given but there is scope for the new employee to bring their own ideas into the business.

Required attributes:

  • Ability to spell correctly
  • Computer literacy
  • Willingness to speak to customers on the phone

No prior experience is necessary as full training will be given.  However, the following experience would be useful:

  • WordPress website content management
  • Email marketing
  • Telesales
