Job Opening: Marketing Assistant
This position is now closed.
Game If You Are, a marketing agency for indie game developers and small publishers, is looking for an eager and ambitious Marketing Assistant. This position is entirely remote-working and offered initially on a six-month fixed-term basis, with the possibility of transitioning into permanent employment.
This is a hands-on, fast-paced role within a rapidly evolving agency. You’ll work as part of a small and passionate team of marketing professionals to support our delivery of exceptional service to a broad range of clients.
If you love video games, are looking to pursue a career in marketing or communications, and like the idea of learning and growing as part of an innovative and highly regarded start-up business, this role might well be for you.
We are constantly looking to improve the diversity of our team, and believe passionately in the value of different backgrounds, cultures, and life experiences. If you don’t see many people like you working in marketing or games roles, we’d especially love to hear from you.
You’ll primarily support the Head of Client Strategy in organising and delivering marketing planning projects for a range of video game clients.
You’ll research audiences, develop and distribute surveys, and pick apart competitors to figure out what they did well, what they didn’t do so well, and what our clients can learn from them.
You’ll write a lot of reports and client documentation.
You’ll also support our Campaign Management team – tracking results, compiling updates for our clients, and occasionally helping out with creating content such as press releases and social media posts.
You’ll probably get to play a lot of games, too. Yes, we do mean during working hours.
Requirements & desirables
You know video games. You probably play them quite often. You especially appreciate the innovation and creativity of the indie games scene.
You understand the fundamentals of marketing. You know what we mean when we say “PR” or “community management” or “digital advertising”. If you hear someone talking about a “sales funnel” or “key performance indicators”, you’ll have a decent sense of what they’re on about.
You’re a fast and eager learner. You pick up new skills quickly and you’re always hungry to develop your knowledge and experience.
You’re a very good communicator. You’re as good at listening as you are at talking. You can write clearly and concisely, precisely and quickly, with a great command of the English language.
You’re exceptionally organised, with an eye for the little details. Stuff doesn’t slip your mind, because you’ve developed techniques to retain and process lots of information. You know all your deadlines, and you don’t miss them.
You might, but don’t necessarily, have an educational background in marketing or communications.
You might, but don’t necessarily, have experience promoting or developing products, services or events – either professionally or as a hobby.
You probably live in the UK. You might live outside the UK, in which case you’ll be committed to working normal UK business hours and open to signing a freelance contract instead of a standard employment contract.
Salary & benefits
£18,000 – £21,000 dependent on experience.
No commute! Work from home / the beach / anywhere with an internet connection.
Generous annual leave allowance! Two weeks off over Christmas and New Year, plus all bank holidays, plus 20 days’ accruable bookable holiday each year.
Actually reasonable work/life balance! We have a policy of avoiding overtime wherever possible, and always offer time off in lieu on the infrequent occasions where overtime is required.
Fortnightly Fun Time Fridays! Early finish every other Friday for online team socials.
