A BIT ABOUT THE ROLE 

As our new Marketing Manager, you’ll be responsible for driving revenue for an exciting new destination coming soon to Selfridges Oxford Street. As part of this, you will:

  • Lead in creating, recruiting and driving partnerships where you’ll contribute towards the commercial targets for the space to ensure it lands just how we’d like it to...with a bang!

  • Build strong working relationships with a variety of stakeholders across the business to achieve the best results for all marketing activities.
  • Analyse the effectiveness of all marketing activity whilst simultaneously focusing on retention, brand awareness and footfall to store.

You’ll be reporting into the Senior Marketing Manager of Lifestyle and Real Estate, as well as working closely internally with the Store teams, Events, Marketing, Creative, Communications, Digital and several valued external agencies and partnerships. This is a really great opportunity to work with a variety of teams who are dedicated to bringing the magic of Selfridges to life.

Know What We're Looking For

A BIT ABOUT YOU 

  • You’ll have lots of relevant experience within Brand Marketing and Communications, Sales, Media, Digital, Events or PR (preferably a good mix of a number of these!) and expertise in media sales and OOH.
  • You’ll be able to think strategically with a good idea of what best-in-class marketing looks like.
  • Having a confident sales ability will be essential for this role, so you’ve got to be a great communicator who knows how to build meaningful relationships with a variety of different people.
  • You’ll be extremely resilient with a positive ‘can do’ attitude and a focus on delivery – just the kind of person we need to motivate others.

This job is a brilliant opportunity to join a talented, creative marketing team who are incredibly passionate about the ongoing evolution of Selfridges. If you’re looking to come into a new role and make a real impact, then this will be perfect for you. It doesn’t just stop at Marketing either - we have lots of opportunities to get involved and collaborate on projects and in communities internally, so no two days will ever be the same. As Harry Gordon Selfridge once said, ‘There’s no fun like work!’
