Working in the angling trade is a dream come true for many so we’re pleased to announce that the search is on for a talented content creator to join the Leeda marketing team on a full-time basis...

The Role
Strong marketing is the key to ensuring products hit the ground running in a competitive marketplace, and your job will be to strategise, create and implement content across multiple channels for our brands, which include MAP, Wychwood, ICON, Petzl, and Lowrance to name just a few.
Working with the brand and sales teams under the direction the Marketing Manager, you’ll be tasked with creating content that fits the ever-changing and dynamic angling market. Whether that’s video, social media, on the web, or in print, we want someone who can come up with a fresh approach to ensuring our customers get the full story on our products and brands.
You’ll also get hands-on with our loyal end users, communicating directly with them through social media and at events and shows, and you’ll also be a point-of-contact for our team of brand ambassadors across our carp, game and coarse brands.

The Person
We want someone with strong ideas and even stronger skills - is that you?
If you’re great with a camera, we expect video and photographic content to be of a high standard, no matter the project. Got an eye for design? You’ll have the freedom to put your stamp on how our marketing content looks and feels, so if you can use Indesign, Illustrator and Photoshop that’s a huge bonus.
Knowing your way around Instagram, Facebook and Youtube is a key part of the role so if you thrive on these platforms, this is the role for you. Plus, you’ll be involved with our web team on working across B2B and B2C platforms, and dealing with e-mail campaigns.
Although a knowledge of the industry isn’t essential, knowing your way around angling ‘lingo’ and the basics of fishing is desirable. You’ll also need be an outdoors person; come rain or shine, you’ll be working with our anglers around the UK to generate fresh and exciting footage and stills.
With a competitive salary, a full range of Nikon photo/video equipment, and access to some of the top brands in the industry, this is a unique opportunity.
A full UK driving license is essential.

The Company
Established over 30 years ago, Leeda is one of the leading players in the angling industry serving hundreds of accounts across the UK and Europe across multiple disciplines.
As both a manufacturer and distributor, we pride ourselves on delivering essential brands to the marketplace, creating products from scratch for our in-house brands such as MAP and Wychwood, and working with global brands such as Petzl, Mustad and Lowrance on UK distribution.

Our HQ is based in Milton Keynes, UK.
