Marketing & Retail Executive

We are looking for a new key member of the team to help deliver the professional and efficient running of both the retail premises in Ross-on-Wye and the website, as well helping to promote the business across various platforms using a variety of tools.

A busy, varied and interesting role, as our Marketing & Retail Executive you will be comfortable working in different environments: customer facing on the shop floor, as well as updating and effectively presenting products on the website and marketing the business across social media, print media and online publications.  Your focus will be on our clothing, footwear and accessory product ranges, but also working closely with the gun room.

The successful candidate will be friendly, professional and approachable with the ability to deliver exceptional customer service.
