Group Marketing Manager - Food

Location: Sydney CBD, New South Wales
Job Type: Permanent / Full Time

A bit of an intro...

It's been a tough year to be a marketer. Budgets have been slashed, bosses have been more conservative and if you're luck enough to still have a job you've likely had to say farewell to a few colleagues this year. So it's quite refreshing to work with a business that has created roles over the last few months to cope with rising demand and global expansion.

I'll be clear. This role will not suit a lot of marketers. We're after those who have been lucky enough to have set strategy, to have been responsible for their brands in their entirety and those who have had complete P&L ownership. We're asking a lot as we're also after those rare candidates who have had international markets experience. Have you looked after a region such as Asia or the Middle East or have you had significant export market experience?

There can't be many of you who are still reading this because there won't be too many candidates you have all the above. Still interested? I'll keep going. We're also after food marketing experience, and lots of it. You haven't just worked in food but you're probably a foodie. You talk about food all the time, recipes, try different dishes and love new restaurants.

Did I mention that you will love innovation? This is the growth part of this organisation, it's exciting, it's where the profit will come from and it's prime for international expansion. In fact, the categories in this portfolio are currently predominantly focused on Australia and New Zealand so there is a HUGE opportunity to take these brands to Asia and beyond.

This is a highly complex role. All the regions require different approaches, different strategies and have differing local demands. To that end you will work with the Global Insights team to help guide you and your team
