About the role
Strategy is a crucial element in any of our projects. Working with marketing teams in the public sector, education and established B2B organisations who are juggling multiple channels and communities, our role is to untangle their thinking and deliver clear-headed strategic guidance to help them achieve their business goals.

In this role you’ll be developing the campaign strategy – and bringing it to life through regular support sessions where you’ll share the latest digital trends and techniques and build valued partnerships with our clients.

• Be part of the sales process, always looking for ways in which our clients can benefit through additional content creation, strategy services and training.

• Contribute to Sookio’s marketing activity through blog posts and creative ideas.

• can turn marketing jargon into clear advice that gets clients excited about the potential for strategic digital marketing which lead to solid results.

• enjoy nurturing relationships with clients so you become a trusted sounding board and develop creative marketing ideas together.

• organised. You’ll be setting KPIs, timelines and action plans across multiple projects, so you need to stay on top of tasks and the scope of work too.
