Liaising and working with clients post-sale to ensure an efficient production process, including interpreting and implementing clients’ requirements within reasonable parameters, managing and meeting client expectations to produce final copy for publication, launch or supply across a variety of media/platforms.

Working closely with the sales and marketing teams to create and provide award packages, comprising customised PDFs, reprints, logos plus any associated print editorial and video content to clients, award winners, and co-ordinating the awards collateral delivery process.

Carry out design work as and when required, which could include creating infographics, marketing collateral and InDesign templates.

Creating print-ready and online reports and supplements and associated material, requiring a working knowledge of Adobe Acrobat and workflow systems, ensuring production schedules and deadlines are adhered to.

Any other work-related tasks that may reasonably be requested.

Marketing duties include:

Subbing marketing and events copy, from email campaigns to conference brochures, awards literature, internal and external marketing projects, and any other related text.

Liaising with the marketing and events teams to ensure ongoing education with regard to standards.
