Manchester, Greater Manchester, North West, England

£27000 per annum


German-Speaking Marketing Representative, Manchester, £27,000

Combine your love for travel with a passion for Marketing and customer service and you might just have found your dream job right here!

We’re partnering with a global publishing company who are on the lookout for Marketing representatives to deliver their circulation strategy across Europe.

If you’re fluent in English and another language, ideally German or Italian, enjoy travelling and meeting people face to face, then this could be your perfect next role.

What’s involved

They’re a US-based business and produce free specialist magazines for the agricultural industry. This role is focused on ensuring the magazines are distributed in the right places (shops, petrol stations, service stations) and read by the right audiences across Europe.

The best way to see whether this is happening effectively is to be there! So you’ll be expected to travel roughly once a month and spend a week in your chosen territory – which could be in Germany, Italy, Spain or France. You’ll visit every magazine distribution point and liaise with the proprietors to gain their feedback to ensure the magazines are being found and read by the people who need them.

With your own territory to manage, you’ll carry out in-depth market research and really understand your target audience so you can identify more distribution points for magazines to widen their reach. You’ll also gather customer insights and feed this back into the business after every trip.
You’ll also get involved in reader engagement, managing social media channels and creating email marketing campaigns. And you’ll be expected to plan and be involved in UK based Trade Shows when required.

Whilst this isn’t a sales role, you’ll be expected to build relationships with businesses and having meaningful conversations face to face and over the phone.

Requirements for the role

You MUST be FLUENT in both English and another European language. At the moment, we’re looking for German, Italian, French and Spanish speakers. Maybe you’re a recent languages Graduate or you originate from one of the countries in question?

Whilst there’s no specific experience needed, ideally, you’ll have a background in customer service, sales or marketing. Full training is provided though and you’ll be taught what you need to know to deliver successful circulation strategies.

You must be able to commit to travelling abroad a minimum of five days every month or a minimum of 60 days over a year. Trips usually run Sunday to Thursdays, so you’ll be flexible to work weekends when required too.

When you’re not travelling, you’ll be based full time in their central Manchester office where the hours are Monday – Friday 0800 – 1700.

You’ll be a self-starter and able to motivate yourself to work independently with the confidence to travel abroad and strike up conversations with customers. You’ll be comfortable travelling and working abroad alone.

You’ll have a full European Driving Licence and happy to drive abroad.

What’s on offer

  • Really competitive salary and travel bonus – the more days you work abroad, the more you’ll get paid.
  • Mobile and laptop
  • Career progression opportunities
