Marketing Manager

Severn Valley Railway is now seeking a full time, permanent Marketing Manager.  They will lead the strategic development and delivery of ambitious marketing campaigns, growing SVR’s profile, increasing its profile in the market place and introducing it to new markets. 

This will be delivered in line with the Railways vision, mission and family values.  It will recognise the unique heritage of our volunteer-led tourist attraction which is also a living, working, engineering establishment.

The post is responsible for initiating, developing and delivering visitor-focused marketing and related PR activities to ensure Severn Valley Railway remains the best visitor attraction in Worcestershire and Shropshire, maximising awareness and visitor numbers to deliver revenue that will be reinvested in the heritage railway’s locomotives, carriages and infrastructure.

The successful candidate will have a track record of delivering results against targets, preferably in a culture, heritage or entertainment environment.  Ideally, IDM/CIM qualified, they will be experienced in the delivery of marketing across all elements of the marketing mix including digital content creation and social media in order to generate new business.

Based in Kidderminster, a full driving licence and access to a vehicle is essential, given the geographical spread of the Railway and the need to attend other stations.  A flexible, positive attitude and ability to work on own initiative is essential – the Railway operates trains for more than two hundred days a year, seven-days a week between May and October, weekends and bank holidays are key trading days.
