Marketing Coordinator

We’re a thriving team passionate about working together to deliver excellence, all in a natural forest environment.

Welcome to Center Parcs – the number one choice for short break holidays, employing a team of over 9,000 across six separate villages located in the UK and Ireland.

ABOUT US

As part of a thriving village team, this is a unique role that is embedded in village life but plays a vital coordination role between village and Head Office, protecting the brand where the guests see it most closely. Delivering excellent service stands at the heart of all we do and this role provides the link between villages and the Head Office Brand Marketing team to ensure brand standards are maintained and that marketing materials and assets are meeting objectives from a guest and village perspective. This privileged role is located on village, seeing guest experience first-hand, but plays an integral role in making sure our marketing campaigns are delivered on time and in full – acting as the eyes and ears of marketing on village.

MARKETING COORDINATOR

Based on village, you will play a significant role in ensuring our brand, marketing materials, signage and wayfinding looks and feels as it should do for our guests. With support of our Head Office team, you will be guided by our Marketing Manager, Activities Revenue who will ensure you are aware of brand standards, brand guidelines and marketing campaigns. You will be provided with the tools you need to make an impact on village and will act as the point of contact between the village and the Head Office marketing team. You will be required to write marketing briefs based on village requirements, where needed, and to ensure installations, deliveries and distribution are done efficiently and effectively. This is a hugely varied role and not one for the timid. You will be required to work independently – with support and supervision – to ensure marketing on village is delivered to the highest standards. You will need to be highly organised, unflappable, be prepared to get out and about on village and have a keen eye for detail.

This is an exciting opportunity to make a difference on the ground and work for a much loved and successful brand – and to work with a fully integrated, supportive team. The ability to plan ahead, to manage your own workload, to monitor progress and to pay attention to all the details is therefore paramount.

HOURS OF WORK

You will be contracted to work 160 hours per 4 week period.  This means that your hours and days of work could vary each week, but you will always receive at least your contracted hours each period. Your working hours are 8:30am to 5:00pm, Monday to Friday, some evening and weekend work may be required.

As our Village is open 365 days of the year, your working hours will include some public / bank holidays and during Christmas and/or New Year on a rota basis.

  • English at GCSE Grade C or equivalent
