This person will work remotely from home, though regular in-person meetings and client work sessions will break up the days and weeks so you’ll need to be based in the North East of Scotland – ideally between Dundee and Aberdeen.

Working across a number of industry sectors including but not limited to renewables, home developments, technology and retail. You will be a confident individual, who loves to help businesses find their voice online through a variety of marketing mediums. 

You understand that it is not about sleazy sales tactics when creating content, it’s all about nurturing a potential customer and helping them to get to know, like and trust a business. After all, people buy from people.
