About the company:

Pay Justice is a unique specialist campaigning organisation that helps overcome the barrier to making equal pay claims. Working in close partnership with the country’s leading Human Rights Lawyers, Leigh Day, we have a mission to reduce the gender pay gap by encouraging workers to make equal pay claims. We are registered as a claims management company (so we can encourage and process these claims). We specialise in cutting edge social media strategy and communications to potential claimants.

About the role:

The opportunity will give you an understanding of both how we do our marketing and how this relates to our business objectives.

A typical week may involve writing marketing copy, producing shareable content, optimising online adverts, liaising with co-founders and senior partners over strategy, engaging online with customers and reporting on KPI’s.

You will work within a small marketing team and be able to contribute to team output from day one, as well as being able to learn different skills. One of the biggest perks of this role in a very small flexible SME is you’ll be able to shape your own role in terms of content and in the direction, that interests you. You’ll get to participate in a wide range of opportunities to help with new tasks and projects, coming from various people in the organisation.

Your marketing activity will revolve mainly around social media and digital activities but there may also be opportunities to get involved in more traditional business development activities.

Requirements:
