We are looking for a positive, organised and energetic person to join our team of like-minded individuals as a Digital Marketing Specialist based in Dover.

We are searching for a passionate marketeer to join our Engagement Marketing team who will help to drive and optimise direct digital engagement activity across multiple languages and locations through engagement marketing channels (email, social media, Influencer marketing, blog & App).
