Job Description

Are you interested in developing compelling marketing campaigns and thought leadership for a range of sector practices? Do you want to help a friendly, international consultancy continue its fast pace of growth? If yes, apply now to join CIL as its Sector Marketing Manager.

About CIL

CIL is an international strategy consultancy focused on providing value creation, transactional support and advanced analytics to management teams and investors. We work across a wide range of sectors, and focus on helping clients to grow their businesses, build value, and invest wisely.

Like all consulting firms, we are only as good as our people. To continue our strong growth (~20% per annum over the last five years), we are looking to recruit a Sector Marketing Manager to support the Head of Marketing in driving forward the marketing function at CIL.

The role

Core responsibilities

  • Managing marketing planning for each of our sector practices and ensuring they are aligned with our firmwide strategy.

  • Overseeing and reporting on all marketing activities related to our sector practices. 

  • Working with sector leads to create compelling content, including thought leadership, insights, talking heads and opinion pieces that resonate with our audiences. This will include copywriting, editing and proofreading as well as the design of marketing materials (both print and digital).

  • Researching and managing business development processes for allocated teams. This includes analysing all marketing activity, driving efficiencies and optimising campaigns.

  • Managing PR processes, including our relationship with a PR agency.

  • Supporting the Events Manager with design and delivery of sector marketing events.

Office vs. home working

It is expected that this role can involve a mixture of home and office working (two days per week in the office), although we think the successful candidate would probably benefit from more office time initially to help them get up the curve. We are open to the candidate being based in either our London or Frome office.

Working for CIL

We have two offices in the UK – one in London and one in Frome, near Bath. Our London office is based in the heart of The City near Bank / St Pauls, and within easy commuting distance of most parts of London. Our Frome office is located in beautiful Somerset and offers the same great career experience but from a base in the countryside. We also have offices in the USA (Chicago), France (Paris) and Germany (Munich).
