If you’re looking to secure a Marketing Assistant job, then you’re in the right place! But before you start applying, take a read of our guide to the role, so you know what your future employer will expect of you, and what you can expect of them!

 

Job Description

Usually, Marketing Assistant jobs are entry-level positions, so they’re great if you’re just starting out in the marketing industry, or if you only have experience in a specific marketing task, such as SEO or social media. This is because, as a Marketing Assistant, you’re likely to get involved in the full range of marketing activities – so it’s a great way to gain experience in a number of fields. In most cases, you will be working closely with the Marketing Manager to create campaigns, raise awareness of your brand and engage with your target audience. Typical tasks for a Marketing Assistant include…

  • managing the company’s social media pages
  • keeping the website content fresh and up to date
  • helping with events
  • writing press releases
  • designing and sending email campaigns

 

Key Skills and Experience

Every employer looks for something slightly different in terms of experience and interests, but there are a number of attributes that you should always demonstrate when applying for Marketing Assistant jobs…

  • attention to detail
  • strong copywriting skills, including good spelling and grammar knowledge
  • good organisation and time management

Marketing experience will always be desirable, but if you’ve never worked in marketing before, think about what transferable skills you have. For example, an interest in photography demonstrates an eye for design, or writing for your college newspaper shows your content writing abilities. In many cases, a company advertising a Marketing Assistant job would be perfectly happy with a relatively inexperienced person, who is eager to learn and enthusiastic about the brand.

What You Can Expect

As a Marketing Assistant, you may occasionally be tasked with the less exciting jobs like envelope stuffing or administrative duties. But, you will also be able to get involved with the full range of marketing activities and help on some big projects. There’ll be plenty of opportunities to learn, with training given by your manager, or perhaps even on external marketing courses that your employer’s often fund. As for salary, you’re looking at £15,000 – £20,000 – though of course, this is a very generalised figure! So it will vary by company and location.
