About the Opportunity

Our Brand and Marketing team plays a pivotal role in spreading the word about ManyPets - making sure that our brand remains front of mind and consistent, at all points of the customer purchase journey.  Our business has scaled quickly, and we know how important our brand reputation and product awareness are, both now and in the years ahead: and we want to support our pet-parents by entertaining and educating them about our brand and pet health.

We’re looking to welcome a Marketing and Events Coordinator to our pack – someone who will bring our campaigns, events, and projects to life.  The role is embedded in the UK Engagement team (part of Brand and Marketing) and will have a focus on both events and communications.  You’ll be at the heart of our team and working on projects from initial planning through to execution and evaluation.

Reporting to the UK Engagment Team Lead, you’ll make sure that all team activity is delivered on time - and on budget. You’ll be responsible for bringing our team together and take ownership of how we can improve the impact and efficiency of our work.  The main focus of this role will be to support our events calendar – and you’ll also get to work across our social media, video, PR, communications, and content projects.  It’s a key role and you’ll be instrumental in helping us delivering high-quality campaigns that contribute to our business objectives.

Hybrid-Working

Everything changed overnight when the pandemic happened. Suddenly everything was different: whether we were in a home office, spare room, or makeshift desk: we were working on our own and dealing with Zoom calls, bad Wi-Fi, and a very different working day.  We now work from home and our company office, so we've created our Making Work, Work guide, which explains it all.

We offer a fantastic range of company benefits to suit everyone in a remote-first world, with a focus on supporting our physical and mental wellbeing. Coupled with a generous holiday allowance and regular care packs, we’re always looking for new ways to look out for our people.

Our Values

Our company values drive everything we do - and they are:

Show You Care | Do The Right Thing | Think Big | Work Together | Be Tenacious

Connect With Us!

Reasonable Adjustments and Support

If you need any help, support or advice at any point during the hiring process please email our Inclusion Council in complete confidence.  Our Inclusion Council is a cross-functional group of people from our global business - and they are not the hiring managers for this role.  We're here to make sure everyone has a fair and equitable experience when they're considering joining us.  If you want to talk or ask any questions, we are here to listen (and we'll do what we can to flex our approach to a process that suits you.)
