If this is you (or any of your friends) then we’d love to hear from you!
Here’s who we’re looking for...
You’re the type of person that gets a buzz from growing a consumer brand and from getting the word out there. You’re likely to be someone who is brimful with great marketing ideas whilst being able to implement efficiently, write brilliantly and liaise effectively with the team, with journos and with a multitude of others. You’re also someone who is passionate about family holidays and values the importance of quality family time. BTW you’ll also need to “muck in” from time to time to help achieve what needs to be done.
