About you

You’re a proactive marketer with a can-do attitude that wants to make an impact in a fast-growing company. With a track record of optimising and improving email engagement, you’ll be delivering engaging, memorable content to our customers that encourages action.

About the role

You’ll work with our CRM specialist and will be responsible for managing the current email schedule. A data-driven role, you will use key metrics to suggest and implement new strategies to engage our customer base. Supported by a marketing copywriter and designer, you’ll enhance the customer experience and ensure all content is relevant, engaging and gets results.

About us

Car & Classic is one of the largest automotive marketplaces in the world. We’re lucky to have thousands of user generated listings submitted monthly with content gems from James Bond’s Aston DB5 to Elvis Presley’s Cadillac. The site is old, launched in 2005 but under new, VC-backed ownership since 2018 and on an exciting triple-digit growth journey to bring classic vehicle transactions online.

Our culture is incredibly important to us. We’re lucky enough to have built the team from scratch with a focus on enjoying the day-to-day, diversity, inclusion and high performance. Despite being an entirely distributed business we build strong connections as colleagues and have created a fun and high-performing culture.

Whilst the team is only 100 people now we expect to double over the next 12 months. We’re looking for an Email Marketing Executive that has good, relevant experience and wants to make their mark in a rapid-growth business where they can make a real difference, whilst enjoying the environment and culture.

Finally, you don’t have to love cars to work here (and lots of our team don’t) but for those who do this is an incredible opportunity to combine your passion and professional lives – we look forward to hearing from you.
