Marketing campaigns might have grand designs, turn businesses around and land plaudits on the marketing managers and directors, but behind every award-winning campaign is a team of marketing assistants getting the actual campaign going and following it through.
Marketing assistant jobs come in all flavours – some are strictly digital, some focus on social and others are more traditional. However, they must all work together to achieve the goals of a campaign, and when they do it right, they can make it sing.
While a lot of the marketing assistant’s job will involve monitoring performance, hiring outsourced talent, creating web pages, setting up paid search campaigns and optimising websites, they are quite often called upon for their creativity and will be instrumental in brainstorming for clients. Experience, technical ability and imagination all play a part in this role.
The skills required
There’s no single marketing assistant job description as the role differs from company to company, and even assistants working on neighbouring desks will often be doing very different jobs. The role has fragmented into many different layers today, so whatever experience and talents you have could stand you in good stead, whether that’s analytical, technical, creative, social or in public relations.
The overarching skill is an ability to understand a brief and a target and to enact a plan that satisfies both. As an assistant you might actually play a part in formulating briefs too, based on your own skill set, although you’ll be expected to work within the marketing manager’s budgetary constraints.
