Property Marketing Assistant

Level: 12 Month Internship

At Quickmove Properties, we are passionate about helping our customers move to luxury park home developments with the minimum of hassle. Our vision is to be the supplier of choice for the park home industry, with market-leading part exchange and marketing services. To help do this we are growing our team, including this new role to help market our park homes to prospective clients.

We are looking for an enthusiastic, creative, and self-motivated individual for us to guide and coach through the early stages of their Marketing career. Your chosen path can be the opening to any sector and the property market could be an excellent starting point for you.

You will have the opportunity to learn from a team who have a diverse Marketing background and can give you the exposure to a wide range of responsibilities, which will build on what you are already learning on your current degree/apprenticeship course. We want you to make this role your own, where your flair and enthusiasm will contribute to the long‐term development of our Marketing future. There are day-to-day duties that you will own, but you will also have the opportunity to add impact on Rightmove, On The Market and What House?, by adding your creative flair when writing engaging copy for the park homes we sell. These homes are exquisite, set on picturesque landscapes and you will have the opportunity to paint that picture for our customers in these listings, helping them envisage living there.

Quickmove Properties is a small company, but we are a very friendly group. Our Chairman, Steve, also works in our open plan office and he will no doubt stop by your desk to check-in and make sure you are getting on OK. As well as working hard, we do like to keep a balance in what we do. We love a challenge and have raised thousands of pounds for local charities, through team bake-offs, running from Swindon to John o’ Groats (virtually of course!) and now a cycling event. The Marketing team also arrange company events, which we will get you involved in too when you join us.

The office is set in a quiet business park within Royal Wootton Bassett, with lots of parking just outside the door; or local bus stops near-by if preferred. There is a local shop and the town is only up the road, plus there is a lovely lake if you fancy eating your lunch in the sun.

If this role sounds perfect for you, please get in touch.
