Marketing Assistant (France) - 100% Remote


Job description

About you
You have a couple of years’ experience managing email marketing campaigns and are looking to take the next step in your career. You have good attention to detail and are numbers oriented, whilst still having a creative flare. You are able to work independently and as part of a broader marketing team. You have a desire to learn and test new ideas and are passionate about marketing.

About the role

This is a brand new role for Car & Classic and is critical to supporting our European expansion. You'll have plenty of influence and can shape the strategies and tactics used to create successful European marketing campaigns.

Day to day, you'll use industry-leading software to create personalised email messages in real-time and contribute to the smooth operation of the Marketing department.

You'll work towards our goals and the long-term growth of Car & Classic. You'll be building and targeting email marketing campaigns for the European market - starting with France. 

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 95 people now we expect to double over the next 12-months. We’re looking for a French speaking Marketing Assistant 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.
