This isn't an ordinary graduate opportunity. After all, this isn't an ordinary business. Since 1992 we've grown at a phenomenal pace to become a market leader with a whole range of brands, over 4.6 million customers, and a profit of £88 million. Which goes to show that ambition and hard work can take you just about anywhere. What's more, we're still growing. And we're looking for talented graduates to join our marketing teams and help shape the next stage of our success story. We'll place you within one of our businesses units, either with comparethemarket.com, one of our international equivalents or, alternatively, you might find yourself working closely with major high street brands in our partnerships division. Whichever business you join, you'll take on a challenging role, with all the support you need to turn your raw talent into an exceptional career. In a business that's growing at speed – there's no limit to where that could take you.
What you'll do
We haven't grown by waiting for things to happen, and we don't think that you should either. You'll go straight into a real job as a Senior Marketing Executive. Learning will come thick and fast as you get involved in every aspect of marketing – planning strategies and specific campaigns, overseeing budgets and monitoring the performance of our activities across channels, as well as building relationships with stakeholders and our external partners and agencies. Ultimately, you'll make sure that everything we do delivers business results, and that we learn from our work to get even better results next time.
It's a lot to take in, from understanding how to objectively judge creative work to planning marketing activity, analysing data to assess progress and spot opportunities. But we'll make sure you have all the support you need. As well as your graduate network you'll have a mentor to offer guidance and advice. You'll be critical to our ongoing success, and we'll invest heavily in your future with robust training, as well as study towards the Institute of Direct Marketing qualification.
Make no mistake: we'll expect a lot from you. But we'll offer even more in return. And in a business of our scale and scope, there's no shortage of opportunities to move on and up as soon as you're ready.
What you'll need
You don't need a marketing or business-related degree. We're more interested in your skills – and your attitude.
Specifically, you'll need
- At least a 2.1 in any subject
- Strong analytical thinking and excellent numeracy
- The entrepreneurial flair to spot new opportunities
- Hard work and strong ambition which means you're unafraid to fail
- The energy to make the most of our fast-paced environment
We will also be recruiting two graduates that speak either French or Dutch.
