Job Description

Working to the Chief Communications Officer, as part of the Marketing and Communications department and in-market Commercial team, Volta Trucks is seeking ambitious Marketing and Communications Managers for its European launch markets (UK, France, Spain, Italy, Germany, Netherlands) to develop and maintain the awareness, credibility and confidence in Volta Trucks. As a relatively new brand, this is an opportunity to be part of the team that shapes and establishes the company in a market from the outset.

  • Provide local Marketing and Communication insights and input into global strategy and process, and implement global and local Marketing and Communications activity.
  • In conjunction with global teams, input and manage local language and localised content production, developing a positive and consistent perception of the product, brand, and services globally.
  • Recommendation, selection and delivery of local market Marketing and Events opportunities, providing insights on areas of optimization, business outcomes, and return on investment.
  • Ongoing local PR media relations, media outreach and sell-in to support editorial positioning in corporate, business and trade-focused press.
  • Research, recommend, and drive targeted marketing plans that bring together global programs, regional opportunities, customer marketing, and partner activities.
  • Evaluate, select, and manage vendors that contribute to regional marketing programs.
  • Manage budgets within pre-defined limits

Qualifications and Experience

  • Experience working with and managing third-party agencies etc.
  • Experience working with journalists and the media
  • Proficiency in all Microsoft Office products, including Excel, PowerPoint etc.
  • A digital mindset, with a working knowledge of social media tools.
  • Knowledge of Marketing compliance regulations such as GDPR etc.
  • Strong oral, editing and written skills in local and English language.
  • Experience of networking with colleagues, senior management, agencies, and external influencers
