Characteristics


• Previous experience in marketing is an advantage, but not essential.
• Analytical – it is vital that this person is analytical, including the creation and sharing of regular quantitative and qualitative reports on number of followers, customers, engagement levels etc. Even more importantly, they thrive in turning analysis into targeted action plans with measurable goals.
• Curious – insatiable in their appetite to understand our customers and what they expect (through profiling our business and those of successful peers) and then implementing this knowledge in successful plans.
• Influential – this person will share their knowledge not just with RCB colleagues but with customers, partners, and other breweries. They will be a natural sharer and an engine of productive partnerships.
• Self-starting and robust – as a small business, we try lots of things and many succeed but some fail. Learn from the failures, repeat and double down on the successes. Take success and failure in your stride without ever losing passion.
