Marketing assistant - East Sussex

Marketing assistant

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.

Marketing assistant Jobs in East Sussex

Bordered by Kent, Surrey and West Sussex, East Sussex is a ceremonial county in the south-east that is situated on the English Channel. It comprises communities like Eastbourne, Brighton and Hove, Hastings and Newhaven, and offers a variety of opportunities for those seeking Marketing assistant jobs.

In the 5th century, the South Saxons settled in the region that would later become known as Sussex, although archaeological evidence suggests that humans and their ancient predecessors may have been living in the region for more than 400,000 years.

During the 16th and early 17th centuries, glass making was an important part of the East Sussex economy, although this mainly died out in the 1600s as competition with the East Midlands took over.

These days, East Sussex is a popular tourist destination and much of its economy is based in the service sector and retail.

Brighton is home to a number of financial services companies, including the European headquarters of American Express. Other companies include the Body Shop, and various media and tech companies have moved to the area since the 1990s.

What's more, East Sussex also comprises two important port towns. Newhaven is used mainly by ferry companies that travel between France and England, such as LD Lines and Transmanche Ferries. Meanwhile, Rye is predominantly used for fishing and yachting.
