What will I be doing?
You’ll be constantly deepening the already expert knowledge of our brands and the people who use them. You’ll use this level of insight to help develop our products’ personalities and bring them to life. That could mean working on the launch of a new ice cream, undertaking research on the latest trends in hair care or planning a digital campaign for Lynx.
What do we look for?
Creative flair will see you go far, but marketing is commercially focused and demands strong
business skills to actually make things happen. It takes a deep sense of logic, ambition, organisational and analytical skills, a head for figures and great gut instincts.
With a strong performance culture, challenging goals and continuous feedback, we will support you to achieve your potential in an inclusive environment. You will thrive by gaining exposure to real business challenges where your energy and fresh thinking will have an impact. First-hand experience- it’s the fastest way to learn.
