Brand and Social Sales Manager

Mumsnet is the UK’s biggest website for parents, and our purpose is to make their lives easier. We’ve got some of the busiest forums in Europe, with users offering each other advice and support 24/7 (as well as more content, bloggers, videos, events and campaigns than you can shake a rattle at). We want to be indispensably useful for parents, and a great place to work.

Why work for us?

We’ve grown steadily and sustainably over the last 16 odd years and we’ve got every intention of carrying on. We’re building a high-performance, collaborative and agile work environment. We believe that mistakes are human, but learning is divine. We put purpose before profits, we’re committed to diversity and equality, and our computers - metaphorically speaking - say 'YES'.  We don't only want to hire the best people: we want to retain them. If you need some flexibility, let us know and we’ll do our best. For more about our equality and diversity policy, see [[]] here.

We host sandwich lunches, staff parties and knowledge sessions; we have a choir, a book club and a football team; and we have our own yoga studio while remaining tolerant of the Lycra-averse. Working for Mumsnet means never having to pretend you don’t have a family (or other commitments) and we promise never to keep you away from the school sports day.

Where we are

We’re based in sunny Kentish Town, where you’re never more than 500 metres away from a sourdough pizza and an elaborately refurbished pub.

The role
We're on the hunt for a Brand and Social Sales Manager to help our clients craft some of the most enticing and exciting recruitment propositions for mothers in the UK. Our recruitment website for family friendly companies focuses on working with a stellar client list of UK firms which have employment policies that really work for parents. Think, flexible working, enhanced maternity leave and the ability to never miss a sports day. Some of our favourite clients so far - Elizabeth Arden, Google, Tesco, PwC and BareMinerals.

What you will do

  • You'll lead our work with clients on Mumsnet Jobs - our exciting recruitment website designed for family friendly employers

  • Design compelling ways that companies can inspire our audience to apply for new jobs - whether it is compelling editorial or a catchy social media campaign, you'll be on top of it all. Actively providing ideas on how our clients should find new employees.

  • Not being afraid to sell. We want you to consistently hit sales targets and build contacts with new clients.
  • Dealing with the day-to-day running of a digital recruitment site, contributing to our social media strategy and managing projects with our clients

  • Being creative and commercial.  How do we make Mumsnet Jobs into the best recruitment site for women in the UK.

What you must have

  • Digital experience - working on websites or apps and being familiar with digital advertising models

  • Some kind of sales experience but we're open to ideas on what that looks like - perhaps you have run your own business or worked in fashion. We're fans of transferable skills.

  • Confidence with social media and new technology - you'll be a quick learner

  • Bags of enthusiasm about dealing with people, first class presentation skills and an 'I love my job and I want to kick ass' attitude.

  • An extremely high standard of written and verbal communication (this will be access at interview)

It’d be nice if you had

  • Some experience managing people

  • An interest in writing. Blogs or short stories - we're not fussy.

  • Digital marketing experience 

  • Some ability on photoshop

If all of this sounds good to you, please apply with your CV and a covering letter that demonstrates some of the qualities we’re looking for.

Deadline for applications is: 21st May 2017
