Something exciting is happening at the London Borough of Lewisham. We’re creating a whole new Commercial Operations Service in our Public Realm division. The new Service will help us meet the community's needs and achieve our strategic priorities through an ambitious programme of work. If you’re a capable leader with a business mind, join our newly created team.
As our Marketing Manager, you’ll help to develop Lewisham’s vibrant Street Markets, Commercial Waste and Street Trading service. The goal? To maximise financial performance and support our wider social, economic, and environmental agenda. It means growing our sales pipeline and developing strategies to achieve robust KPIs. New business, rolling contracts, existing clients – you’ll develop them all.
Day to day, you’ll be researching prospective accounts in targeted markets, pursuing leads and looking for successful agreements in liaison with the Commercial Waste team. There’ll also be the chance to develop and deliver festivals and community events. With creativity, you’ll bring continuous improvements in services, as well as effective performance and quality management.
To join us, you’ll need excellent knowledge of the Markets and Street Trading industry, as well as relevant legislation. You’ll also need experience of organising events and dealing with an array of stakeholders such as traders, businesses and the public. You therefore need great communication skills, both in person and on paper. We’re also looking for negotiation skills, customer focus and experience of sales and partnership working. Apply now.
