We are looking for a new Marketing Intern to help to take this young and exciting social enterprise to a new level. It involves developing and extending our networks and commercial contacts, using emails and letters, telephone marketing and social media. Some training will be given and there will be constant contact with other members of the team. There will be some back-up administrative tasks to help with the smooth functioning of the office.
It is crucial that TreeStation continue to build its sales and for this a sustained marketing effort is required. The existing TreeStation team is doing its best under the direction of the Board but has insufficient time to devote to this crucial activity. The intern will make an important contribution by building and maintaining the marketing database, by organising and implementing marketing campaigns under the direction of the Managing Director, and making contact with those people and organisations who respond to the marketing activities to find out if they are in a position to buy, at which point others at TreeStation will make the sales calls.
The role is initially for 6 months for 14 hours per week, for which we have obtained funding. However, if the role is a success then it is likely to be extended or made permanent at the end of that period.
