Are you driven by making a direct impact on the local economy, excited by the challenge of working with internationally renowned brands and ambitious to help us grow the business navigating a multi-stakeholder environment? Let this be your next challenge.
For the first time we are hiring a dedicated Marketing Manager to develop the Engine Shed and SETsquared Bristol brands and to establish a consistent communication strategy that ensures a balance between our commercial operations and our inclusive economic development work.
You will be a team player who is entirely comfortable working in a small, growing, dynamic business. Although you will be employed by The University of Bristol, you will work within The Science Research Foundation (“SRF”), the 18-person autonomous subsidiary of the University, at Temple Meads, that operates Engine Shed and SETsquared Bristol. You will be involved in all aspects of development of those two business units.
SRF has grown revenue 5-fold in the last 5 years and expects to deliver further significant growth with the expansion into new sites as well as significant growth in SETsquared’s capacity and capability.
Our audiences are broad: from tenants and event users, to visiting international trade missions and primary school children; from technology startups and scaleups to government, from potential room-hirers to angel investors, from regular business users of our Members’ Lounge to infrequent coworkers. Our reputation needs to be developed across all these groups.
Marketing and communications are essential to our success and plays a pivotal role in our continued expansion. Yes, there is complexity not just in our stakeholders, audiences and customers, but also with our messaging, engagement, and the important differences between the two brands. You get to own and lead on all marketing activity, working with the team and external support. It will be fast paced, varied and above all stimulating – there really isn’t a position quite like it.
You will have the freedom to shape this role and to prioritise which areas to focus on over time.
Nothing has stayed still for very long in our business to date, yet we are at the cusp of perhaps our most significant growth – our ‘scaling up’ phase – have you got the enthusiasm, wit and expertise to ensure that our brands remain at the top?
We serve a very diverse audience and need fresh perspectives, so positively welcome applicants from all backgrounds.
This is a part-time role working 17.5 hours per week.
