Marketing assistants support the work of marketing managers and executives on projects directed at maximising company profits and developing sales strategies or marketing campaigns.

Marketing assistants are responsible for:

  • compiling and distributing financial and statistical information such as budget spreadsheets

  • analysing questionnaires

  • writing reports, company brochures and similar documents

  • organising and hosting presentations and customer visits

  • assisting with promotional activities

  • visiting customers/external agencies

  • helping to organise market research.

They work closely with employees in other functions, such as advertising, market research, production, sales and distribution.

 

Qualifications and training required

 

There are routes into marketing for both university graduates and school leavers.

Graduates with any degree discipline can become marketing assistants. But degree subjects such as marketing, business or statistics can be advantageous. Some jobs, particularly those in industrial marketing, may require a scientific or technical background.

Relevant paid or voluntary work experience is useful – this can be gained in any commercial area that requires contact with customers or the general public (particularly sales and marketing). Placements and work shadowing may be available with larger employers.
