Job Description

Who are we?

Investec is a distinctive specialist bank based on the edge of The City - opposite St.Paul’s cathedral.

This role forms part of the Group Online Marketing team which has responsibility for building our brand across all digital channels. The focus is on leveraging our sports sponsorship investment in English Test Cricket, The Investec Derby, Tottenham Hotspur and GB Ladies Hockey. We further provide broad online marketing support to other marketing teams (especially our colleagues based in South Africa) as well as other geographies and business units.

What’s our culture like?

Our company culture is very different to many other banks. Within the Group Marketing function it’s relaxed (no suits!), informal (we have the radio on in the background) and allows the individual the freedom to be creative and solution focused.

Specifically we need the following skills:

- Very strong online copywriting and editing skills – you’ll be responsible managing the creation of content on and other group websites and digital channels

- Understanding of core SEO principles and implementation.
