A leading international legal practice with a truly global presence requires a Marketing & Communications Manager to join the Sourcing & Recruitment team of its Legal Services Consultancy during an exciting time of expansion and growth. The primary focus of the role is to drive talent attraction and marketing strategy.
Contracting is a relatively new concept for lawyers and the firm needs to invest strongly in raising the profile and attractiveness of consulting to top tier lawyers and thus the Marketing & Communications Manager will be key to the firm's long term success. Reporting to the Head of the Sourcing & Recruitment team, the role holder will be responsible for raising the firm's market profile with both lawyers and end clients and for attracting lawyers to join the firm's panel of consultants or wider networks and communities. The successful candidate will help to raise company profile and cement the firm as the market leader in its field and the 'go to' provider for the best consultants and the highest quality work.
You will bring marketing capabilities to bear across multiple channels including the firm's website, the legal media, LinkedIn and social media and will have an important role in building networks and communities, creating and commissioning content and managing the thought leadership programme, as well as ensuring consistency with brand and messaging. The Marketing & Communications Manager will be responsible for all talent acquisition marketing activity and will work alongside the Recruitment team and closely with the Consultant Relations team to support all recruitment and networking campaigns and events. You will proactively build relationships with external media channels to position the firm as a thought leader in the field. Eventually, you are likely to have a wider role in marketing and client activities and whilst the role does not currently include line management responsibilities, you will oversee the activities of a number of other team members, and line management is a real prospect for the future.
The successful candidate will be a bright graduate with strong marketing experience, ideally gained in a professional services or recruitment environment, to include experience of delivering multi-channel marketing solutions and planning, building and executing campaigns. Knowledge of talent acquisition strategies from a marketing perspective would be helpful but it is not essential. The Marketing & Communications Manager must possess outstanding organisational and communication skills and an engaging and sophisticated writing style. In addition you will be adaptable, resilient, collaborative, have a track record building strong and sustainable internal and external relationships and thrive in a fast-paced environment.
