Who are we?

Here at N Brown, we champion inclusivity by making our customers look and feel amazing. We’re a top ten UK clothing and footwear digital retailer, with a home proposition, serving customers across our five strategic brands: JD Williams, Simply Be, Ambrose Wilson, Jacamo and Home Essentials. We don’t believe that age, size, shape or background should stop anyone from feeling confident, stylish and happy with the way they look and feel. With our industry leading expertise in creating fashion that fits, we’ve been proudly breaking down these barriers for over 160 years. We help our customers to express themselves with stylish products, helpful services and flexible finance. Now, we’re moving forward together, embracing innovation and new technology, to continue to delight our customers.​​​​​​​

The Role and responsibilities

We want to inspire and empower our customers through our digital media channels. Paid social is important in achieving this to deliver engaging and inspiring campaigns. Our vision for paid social is to make the most of the role it plays in the relationship between the customer and our brands.

We are looking for someone to join our Digital Marketing team as a Digital Marketing Assistant: Paid Social in our Brand and Creative department and they will be at the very heart of the team! You will be based at our headquarters in the Northern Quarter. This person will:

  • Assist with digital marketing activities that target our customers, gain new customers and learn how our channels of marketing are performing across different digital platforms.
  • Work closely and support our Trading and Brand and Creative teams with developing brand and advertising campaigns. 
  • Create reports to show how successful our campaigns have been against our targets.
  • Communicate and build on our existing positive relationship with the external agency we work with.

What will you get?

  • You'll learn about the world of Paid Social and Display and how e-commerce supports our business.
  • You'll develop many skills: creativity, communication, attention to detail, organisation, teamwork and relationship-building skills to name a few!

As well as this, you will have:

  • Regular meetings with your Manager.
  • Regular feedback on your work from colleagues so you can learn and adapt.
  • A buddy to support you when you join and throughout your time with us. 
  • Training and development support from us and from the Prince's Trust, youth employability experts, to build your skills for the working world and your future!

What are we looking for?

Do you have an interest and a passion for Digital Marketing? Do you like to think of yourself as a creative thinker and willing to learn new things? If so, then this could be the role for you. 

  • We’d love someone with a “can-do”, positive attitude that likes to work in a team and build relationships.
  • You should feel comfortable working on your own at times and be pro-active with asking questions. 
  • We’re looking for someone who has academic knowledge or previous work experience in ICT as good computer skills are needed. 
  • Any experience of working within Paid Social or with e-commerce websites is desirable but not essential.
