A unique opportunity for two interns to join an established team with big responsibilities. This is an internship suited to a student or graduate looking for a 1 year placement opportunity. Working for a brand and category leader within a global business with a turnover in excess of $500m, you will be based at our offices in Hayes, with on site parking and good access to public transport. We are an ‘employer of choice’, with a whole lot going on, including new marketing strategies and projects to excite and delight the marketing team. Whilst reporting to a senior manager, you will also be mentored by our VP for International Marketing – you will not get lost in the crowd!
Under the supervision and direction of your line manager, you will be responsible for delivery of the annual social and digital marketing calendar for the brand and for maintenance of the on-line asset library and on-line POS (point of sale) store. The market coverage is global and will involve contact with markets in Europe, Asia Pacific and Latin America. The posts report to a Brand Manager, also based in Hayes, but you will be expected to show the maturity and skill to work across a matrix reporting structure, indirect reporting (e.g. to Trade Marketing Manager on POS and regional Marketing Managers on activity reporting) and be sensitive to different ways of working across geography.

- Experience how to work as part of a global marketing team in a business with turnover in excess of $500 million
