Marketing is an increasingly integral part of our business here at GLL. Our marketing team has expanded rapidly over the past few years with the development of our Better brand of leisure centres, libraries and children’s centres. We’re now looking for a Graduate Marketing Executive to support the ever increasing business demands as the organisation continues to thrive and grow.
Supporting the team with a range of marketing projects from online and digital to print, you’ll be a fast learner with the ability to multi-task.

This is an ideal opportunity for someone looking to start their marketing career in a customer-facing organisation. You’ll have a marketing degree, or equivalent professional qualification. You’ll have sound knowledge of the marketing environment, the full marketing mix (offline, digital and social) and the ability to contribute good marketing ideas.
You will be confident, approachable and able to remain calm under pressure. As a Marketing Graduate (or equivalent) you’ll have knowledge of developments within the Marketing field, including those related to online advancements, as well as an understanding of financial control, budgeting and monitoring. You’ll have very good attention to detail as well as excellent written and verbal communication skills.
Our benefits include excellent training and career development – there is a genuine scope to progress within the company, heavily discounted membership at our leisure centres, attendance related bonus, pension scheme and ride to work scheme.
