*About the Role*
We are seeking an enthusiastic Marketing Associate to help us continue scaling Koru Kids with a role that will span marketing, growth, and creative. The successful candidate will report to the Marketing Manager and work closely with the Head of Growth. You’ll be tackling the day-to-day implementation of our digital, ambassador, and offline marketing, whilst working closely with the operational side of the business to ensure we’re getting ourselves in front of the right parents, and speaking to the best nannies in town.
As a fast-moving business that is on a mission to change the way childcare works you will have a significant opportunity to contribute and influence the direction of the marketing function and business.

* Assist with the production of content e.g. social media assets, blog posts, and advertising ideas.
* Work autonomously but also be happy collaborating with people from various teams in the business.
*Things you should enjoy doing:*
* Dreaming up innovative digital and offline marketing approaches
* Working with numbers, and happy wrangling a spreadsheet of costs and results looking for the best way forward
* Making noise about Koru Kids, and when needed, getting out there handing out flyers, speaking to parents, rallying ambassadors, or chalking the streets
* Making things happen, turning plans into execution, and delivering outstanding marketing
*Types of experience we'd love you to have (you might have about ⅔ of the below):*
* An interesting degree from a good university (or other relevant practical experience)
* Promoting a club, student organisation, or charity
