The ideal Head of Marketing MUST have experience in a similar role.

An interest in all things rural/rural development and diversification would be highly beneficial.

This role covers a wide range of activities and would be suitable for an individual who enjoys taking ownership, working in a fast-paced environment with plenty of variety and loves high quality delivery. You will be talented and ambitious and whilst you have experience, you’re still looking to grow and develop your career as their business grows.
