At Hays, we are leading global experts in qualified, professional and skilled recruitment. Last year our experts placed around 55,000 people into permanent jobs and around 182,000 people into temporary assignments. We employ 7,800 staff in 245 offices across 33 countries and 20 specialisms.

Every day we interact with thousands of clients, helping them deal with talent shortages in some markets to reshaping workforces in others. The nature of employment is also changing fast, with technological advances driving unprecedented evolutions in the way people work. We understand these complexities, and are uniquely positioned across our markets to help clients and candidates solve them.

Hays UK & Ireland (UK&I) generated fees in excess of £225 million last year, more than 30% of the Group's total net fees. The UK&I business is led by the Management Board, and an important strategic vacancy on that Board has arisen for a Marketing Director.  Leading a team of c.30 marketers and working closely with senior operational leaders across the business, the successful person will be expected to drive a high performing marketing platform to deliver success against all commercial targets. Key marketing challenges will include: maximising the impact of sales programmes, developing a leading approach to integrated communications across all digital and social media channels, building awareness and appreciation of the extensive specialist expertise in Hays, and strengthening the reputation of the Hays brand.

In order to flourish in this role, you will have extensive experience of operating within a digital environment.  This will include managing high-traffic commercial websites and maximising e-commerce channels and practices.  It is essential that you are fully conversant in the latest web technologies, digital analytics and online marketing techniques.

We are passionate about our business and ambitious about our ability to build on our market-leading position.  Our UK& I Marketing Director will undoubtedly play a significant role in delivering our future success, and will also be expected to help the global Hays marketing community contribute maximum value and return for the Hays business.
