You’ll lead, plan & execute trade campaigns to accelerate our trade growth and work closely with the CRM Manager and digital team to drive new accounts; frequency, recency and value of the existing trade account base, and develop correct segmentation through trade insights leading to the development of a trade loyalty campaign.

Working closely with the wider team you’ll look at ways of improving the trade counter experience through visual merchandising, space planning and hierarchy of messages to drive repeat visits and average basket spend and raise awareness of the Magnet Trade brand through PR & social activity.

You’ll effectively manage marketing agencies to make sure work is delivered on time, to budget and on brand and work closely with them to brief, check and produce all our trade marketing collateral. Efficiently managing the Trade annual budget is key and you’ll develop weekly and monthly reporting for trade KPIs.
