Our purpose is to change the way people live in cities. By providing the means to commute or explore with a bike that you can take anywhere and store anywhere, we can make cities better places to live. We want to increase people’s freedom, improve their health and reduce society’s impact on the environment. We make more than just a bicycle, and we are more than just a bicycle company.
We continue to make the Brompton in West London, where we started in 1975, but our product has travelled far - we now export 80% of our bicycles to 47 countries. In the past 3 years we have invested in a new purpose-built production facility, transformed our digital architecture, opened new flagship stores and had our biggest product launch in company history and we’re not stopping there…
To truly deliver on our purpose, we need passionate, innovative and talented people that want to challenge the status quo and make an impact. We can offer you a job you won’t find anywhere else.
The role of Marketing Communications Manager requires an outstanding communicator with a strong ability to motivate and influence others in a fast moving and entrepreneurial working environment.
Reporting directly to the Head of Marketing, this is a pivotal role in the marketing team and the wider business, which offers a unique opportunity to have a significant impact on every aspect of Brompton’s communications from strategy through to execution.
To meet our growth ambitions, we need to build awareness, engagement and trial amongst a broad range of prospective customers. This role will need to reach and engage people globally by creating outstanding integrated campaigns that drive acquisition through to loyalty and referral programmes. You will produce compelling content, establish relevant partnerships and foster the advocacy of our passionate Brompton community – both online and offline.
Over the next 24 months the launch of Brompton Electric across international markets is the company’s #1 priority, and this role will support successful launches across our priority markets and build communication plans to unlock the long term potential of what we will believe will transform both Brompton’s business and our ability to change the way people live in cities.
Beyond Electric, our long term R&D investment means we have a continuous and strong innovation pipeline, therefore delivering bold and impactful product launches will be increasingly important.
We are looking for someone who is full of passion for what we are trying to achieve, who fills a room with positive energy and who is willing to think and act differently to achieve results. Reflecting our entrepreneurial culture and unique product, our communications will look to combine best practice with a desire to be innovative and not be afraid of trying new and exciting methods.
This is a high-profile role in a dynamic business with a meaningful purpose – there’s never been a more exciting time to join Brompton.
The person in this role will be able to motivate their team to perform to the highest standard and providing recognition for the work carried out and providing areas of improvement. The successful person will mentor and support those who may need assistance and encourage them where necessary for them to achieve their objectives. They must remain confident when dealing with challenging situations and devise imaginative solutions to achieve the agreed goal.
The successful person will be able to create a positive and innovative atmosphere which encourages members of the team to commit themselves to the project at hand and go above and beyond to give their best performance. The person will be an advocate of continuous improvement and always seek practical and cost-effective solutions where possible while always remaining alert in changing situations and show flexibility in their approach when striving to achieve results.
The person occupying this role will enjoy working as a team with others and will continuously influence and motivate others and gain willing acceptance. They will have a natural strength in building relationships as they will need to connect with people in every corner of our global business as well as an external network of agency partners, media and industry contacts. The ideal candidate will enjoy various challenging situations and the ability to work in broad parameters of the organisation.
