We’re at a pretty exciting stage right now—we’ve built a profitable, high-growth business, with 120+ employees and a client list that would make even the most established players proud. But we’re not done yet. We’re on a mission to become a global data company that helps every organisation discover and work better with high-growth and ambitious companies.

With our current Head of Marketing heading on to pastures new, we need someone brilliant to come shake things up a bit.

🙆‍♀️ About us

We track every company in the UK, with a particular focus on the most exciting and innovative ones. Our online platforms help our clients to discover, track and understand these companies. We work with venture capital firms, big financial institutions, major banks, leading universities, and the Government to help them find and work with companies that drive disruption and innovation across the economy.

At Beauhurst we're also particularly proud of our culture. You’d do well to find a warmer or more welcoming group of people, all of whom continually push themselves and each other to make things better. We’re a very inclusive company, but you’ll fit in particularly well if you love the idea of building close relationships with your colleagues. You’ll always be up for a challenge, are thoughtful and considerate in your decision-making, and bring a drive and energy to everything you do.

🥖 The Role

This is a great opportunity to lead, shape, and grow our Marketing function, applying everything you’ve learnt over your career so far. We’ve got strong foundations – an industry-leading product, a well-respected brand, an energetic and talented team – but there’s so much more to do.

No two days will be the same, but your work will include:

📈 Accelerating revenue growth: as part of our commercial teams you will be responsible for all of our marketing efforts, helping drive sustainable and strong revenue growth. You’ll use all the levers at your disposal and make clear-sighted tactical marketing decisions, underpinned by data wherever possible.

🏅 Managing and mentoring a growing team of marketers: you’ll bring boundless energy and enthusiasm to developing our existing team and hire new superstars along the way. You’ll create a supportive and trusting environment that brings the best out of everyone. And you’ll lead by example, rolling up your sleeves to get stuck into whatever needs doing.

🎓 Owning our marketing strategy: you'll plan and implement diverse marketing strategies for different products and buyer personas, working closely with the other commercial teams. You'll also effectively manage your budget to get the most bang for your buck, and continuously track the performance of marketing programmes to optimise for revenue.

🗺️  Supporting our overall commercial strategy: working closely with our CRO, CEO and CPO as well as the wider leadership team, you’ll help shape the company’s direction, identify opportunities in new and existing markets, and work out how we position and present ourselves as the business scales.

🫵 About you

We’re open to a range of different profiles, but at minimum we’d like you to have experience:

  • Running a successful B2B marketing team in a high-growth company, with accountability for targets
  • Using demand and lead generation to build brand awareness and accelerate revenue growth
  • Working closely with both Sales and Account Management teams and designing/running joint campaigns
  • Using data to make decisions, track outcomes, refine every part of the funnel, and boost conversion rates throughout

To be successful in this role (and at Beauhurst more generally) we’d also like you to be:

  • A multi-disciplined marketer, ideally with experience in Demand Generation, Product Marketing and Brand
  • Analytical - you rely on data to track changes, make decisions, and take action
  • Strategic - able to plan over the short and long term
  • An excellent communicator
  • A great mentor - a good manager, strong collaborator and people person.
