A one-year internship in the marketing department at the head office of a country club operator, based near Reading in Berkshire.

This position is ideal for a student who is undertaking a degree in marketing, creative writing or English, with a view to pursuing a career in digital marketing after graduation. The role is busy and varied, working with a friendly but motivated team.

You will be reporting to and working closely with our Marketing Manager, as well as our Marketing Administrator and Designer.

Key responsibilities include:

  • Being actively involved in creating monthly email campaigns, working closely with our designer and using Photoshop
  • Sending out those monthly email campaigns to various databases of club members and non-members
  • Ongoing update and enhancement of Club Company websites, aiming to keep members and non-members up to date with the latest news and offers, as well as optimising SEO.
  • Editing and sending out monthly club e-newsletters (one for each club)
  • In conjunction with Marketing Manager, setting up an e-marketing plan for 2018 (including a Social Media plan).
  • Assisting Marketing Manager to implement and deliver 2017 and 2018 e-marketing plan; proactively (setting up campaigns, planning events, etc) and reactively (following relevant news/information received by TCC and its clubs).
  • Implementing and driving the Social Media plan. Will include review and recommendation for improving presence on Social Media (corporate and clubs).

We are looking for an individual who is organised and self-motivated. The Marketing Manager and the rest of the team will provide a great deal of support to help you develop your skills and gain extensive experience during your year with us; however there will be some occasions where your manager is in meetings or working in a different location, so you will need to be organised and plan in advance to make sure deadlines are adhered to.

Hours of work: 40 hours per week. Monday to Friday, 8:30am-5:30pm with one hour for lunch (can be slightly flexible re start times and length of lunch break as long as 40 hours are done each week)
