We’re an inbound marketing, creative design, web development and 100% HubSpot marketing agency. In fact, out of over 3,000 HubSpot partner agencies, we were named HubSpot Partner of the Year for 2018. We are also the Red Rose Awards Employer of the Year for 2019.
We work in a purpose-built office in the recently converted, Grade II listed Holmes Mill, Clitheroe. We’re a team of nearly 40, filled with young, friendly people who love inbound marketing. To join us, you have to be hungry to learn, enjoy working as a team, enthusiastic about working with our clients and eager to grow with the business.
This is a brand new role for Digital 22, so we’re pretty excited about it. The Inbound Strategy Manager will be an integral part of the team of Inbound Strategists, working closely with them and the wider team to ensure our current and prospective clients receive the best service possible.
Some days, this will mean advising internally on the best direction for a client’s Inbound Strategy and answering any HubSpot-related queries the team or client may have. Or, maybe you’ll be recommending the best ways to react to results and making sure the Strategists in the team are moving things forward and in a positive direction. On other days, you’ll be venturing out of the office to run kick-off days and attend client meetings.
The bigger picture is that you will be focused on supporting the team in delivering industry leading inbound marketing strategies and building strong relationships with our clients (many of which are HubSpot Enterprise users, so being able to cultivate relationships with CMOs and CEOs will be important).
You will also be involved in supporting the sales team by advising on the campaigns most suited to a prospective client. You won’t manage your own clients as you will spend most of your time helping others, although you will get the chance to manage ad hoc projects or run workshops.
For this role, it’s important that you’re passionate about Marketing - especially Inbound Marketing.
Although experience with HubSpot is very desirable, it’s not essential. We have plenty of internal resources which will help to train you up. What is definitely essential, however, is a solid inbound marketing background (minimum of 6 years) and a record of adapting digital marketing strategies to changes in requirements, results and climate.
If you have no HubSpot experience use of another marketing automation tool would be needed instead, such as Pardot, Marketo, Infusionsoft (Keap) Eloqua, Active Campaign or Act On.
There are a lot of plates spinning at once, in this role, so being organised, adaptable and an effective communicator is a must-have for success in this position. As a senior position within the team, you must be hungry to learn, be aware of what’s new in our industry and lead the constant development in our marketing offering.
For all of our roles, we genuinely believe the perfect candidate doesn’t exist - but the perfect-fit person certainly does. If you tick most of the described requirements, are excited by the idea of the role and Digital 22 sounds like a place you’d like to work, we definitely want to hear from you.
Depending on experience
Our week is much lower than the national average so that you have an extra 234 hours per year for yourself.
We’ve found that an early finish offers plenty of opportunities to socialise together and get our weekends started early.
We think it's vital to start the day properly so free fruit and breakfast items are available for everyone to enjoy.
But we also enjoy a drink together after work. That's why we have an industrial size fridge stocked up with lagers, craft ales and spirits. Obviously, we also have soft drinks for non-drinkers and those who are driving.
Each month, our team votes for one of their peers to win a coveted spin of the prize wheel. Prizes range from £500 cash to an extra day’s holiday or chippy lunch for the rest of the team.
At the same time as the Employee of the Month, the team votes for who they think has been the most hungry to learn. This person also gets a spin of the prize wheel.
Somebody’s birthday? Cake. Visited a client abroad? Cake. We haven’t had cake for a bit? Cake.
An agency can't market on cake alone, it needs plenty of coffee too. Our free barista-quality machine does everything from espressos and Americanos to mochas and cappucinos. But if you can taste difference between a cafe au lait and white coffee, you're more of a coffee snob than some of our current lot.
Each week, two teams from the office compete in a friendly five-a-side football game, paid for by Digital 22.
The only way to stay at the forefront of our industry is to be continuously learning, so that’s why training time is scheduled into every team member’s week and every team member has their own personal training plan.
We follow the EOS business plan and have rolled out the weekly Level 10 meeting structure to the individual teams within Digital 22. These are owned and driven by the team, not the management, and is your chance to talk about and improve your experience at work.
Every week, we ask the team what could be done to make their working experience better. This feedback is then discussed and actioned by our leadership team in their meeting each Monday.
Annual feedback is also collected and this helps shape the strategic direction of the company for the coming year.
Everybody in the team has access to a wealth of professional training materials and certifications to complete online.
Every year, we take a group of the team over to the USA for the annual INBOUND conference in Boston.
From project management training to Brighton SEO, budget is put aside to allow our team to attend relevant training courses in the UK.
Because if a marketing agency doesn't have a table tennis table, can it really call itself a marketing agency?
For every year you remain part of our team, you’ll earn an extra day’s annual leave.
Our HR Coordinator and leadership team are there to offer support and guidance whenever needed.
Located inside a restored Victorian cotton mill, our office is packed with flexible working spaces, games consoles, a bar and there’s a gym on-site.
Nearby car park permit is provided to all staff and this gives free parking across the Ribble Valley, all year round.
Digital 22 takes every opportunity to celebrate. If we have a big success with a client, then it’s only right that we mark the occasion together.
We regularly host office games and competitions. Whether it’s a summer of Office Olympics, a pub quiz or the Digital 22 Bake Off, there’s always friendly competition and prizes on offer.
Although we have a young workforce, we know it’s important to plan for all of our futures. That’s why we offer pension contributions 3x the minimum requirement.
We believe that being open about where the company is heading, what the goals are and how we expect to get there is only fair. We hold quarterly team updates on how the business is doing financially and strategically. The leadership team also have an ‘ask me anything’ mentality.
Plus, we think it’s only right that year on year, if you’re doing more senior work and have more responsibilities then your salary is adjusted accordingly.
