About Hodge:

For over 50 years, we’ve shared the same simple mission: to really make a positive difference for our customers and communities. This ethos is in our DNA as we are 79% owned by a charity, the Hodge Foundation.

In order to continue to grow we have a clear focus on ensuring that we are operationally excellent.

Our strategic vision is underpinned by our people and our investment in our colleagues. Our culture is what makes us special and ultimately what delivers our purpose to make a positive difference for our customers and communities.

Our aim is to open financial possibilities where options seem limited. Helping a family get a mortgage, saving for that dream or investing in or developing property. All of our customers get much more than just products: we give them simple solutions and support when they need it most.

The successful candidate will work very closely with the wider MarComms and commercial lending teams to define and deliver the commercial lending marketing strategy.

About You:

We are looking for an enthusiastic, creative, highly organised and self-motivated individual.  Experience in marketing is a must, ideally within financial services and general knowledge of the commercial real estate markets is desirable, such as investment and development lending.

Our ideal candidate is someone who has broad experience of planning and delivering multi-channel marketing activity, right across the marketing mix from social media to 121 comms.

To be successful in this role you will need to have a passion for delivering high quality, integrated marketing activity to help drive the business forward. Excellent stakeholder management skills are crucial as is the ability to work collaboratively with several different groups of colleagues.  You will be a strong communicator with the ability to influence stakeholders at all levels.
