Brand Manager (FTC), Orion

What you’ll be doing

This is a new marketing role within the Communications team, working on a select number of our biggest brand authors and communities to devise, implement and drive their publishing strategies. This means delivering innovative, sales-generating marketing campaigns; from building reader pre-awareness and engaging booksellers, crafting the overall brand messaging and creative direction, planning major advertising spend across a range of channels, securing new partnerships, regular in-depth analysis and reporting on results, and always providing outstanding author care and communications.

Who we are looking for

Our ideal candidate will be confident, enthusiastic and full of ideas, with at least five years of experience in a communications role and a proven track record of delivering truly outstanding campaigns that demonstrate a deep understanding of an author or community’s brand and readership. You’ll be creative, a strong copywriter, able to carefully plan and track budgets and be a multitasker who always shows outstanding attention to detail in everything you do. You’ll understand how to reach different consumers with targeted messaging and initiatives, and have plenty of experience working with third parties on partnerships to broaden the reach of your campaigns.

Fantastic digital skills are essential, including a thorough knowledge of all major social media platforms and tools, including Photoshop and other relevant Adobe creative software, as well as the WordPress platform and direct-to-consumer eCommerce platforms such as Shopify.

You’ll also be able to build excellent working relationships across the business and demonstrate the highest quality author care.

What we offer

Our staff are our greatest asset and our benefits reflect this. In addition to 25 days annual leave days per year + bank holidays, we have an extensive list of benefits that include: a wide-ranging training library, development programmes including mentoring, Cycle to Work vouchers, Private Medical Insurance, eye care vouchers, up to 70% off book purchases, a charity book shelf, 2 volunteer days per year to use at your charity of choice, many employee networks to join, summer hours (finishing at 1pm on Fridays during the summer months!), season ticket loans, rent deposit loans, generous pension schemes and much more!

This role can be based at our London office, or at any of our new regional offices in Edinburgh, Newcastle, Manchester, Sheffield or Bristol.

The role will begin working from home due to ongoing Covid19 restrictions, but once normality resumes this role will be based at one of our UK offices, with a blend of in-office (3 days) and homeworking (2 days) per week.

Who we are and what we do

Orion Books, a division of Hachette UK, publishes commercial, award-winning popular fiction and non-fiction and is home to bestselling authors and brands such as Ian Rankin, Adam Kay, Michael Connelly, Cathy Bramley, Noel ‘The Supervet’ Fitzpatrick, Glastonbury Festival, the Ordnance Survey, Candice Carty-Williams and the Hairy Bikers.

Earlier this year we won the Publisher of the Year award at the British Book Awards 2021, and our award-winning Communications team has a proud track record of creating high-impact, creative, sales-driving campaigns to help bring our books to readers.
