Marketing Intern (12 months)

Job Description

Are you forward-thinking and looking to make your mark in an exciting business? As one of the largest engineering companies in the world, we’re proud of our ingenious technologies that make a difference to the societies we operate. This is especially true in our successful Siemens Mobility Limited organisation, the part of the Siemens family which looks after our transport-related operations and solutions in rail.

We’re looking for a Marketing Intern to join the Rail Infrastructure part of Siemens Mobility Limited for 12 months. This team delivers world-class railway signalling, control and electrification systems that ensure the highest levels of passenger experience and operational performance to make rail the obvious choice for the travelling public and freight operators – driving decarbonisation forward at pace.

You will be an essential marketing support to the entire business and team and will work on exciting projects that will build your marketing and business skills. As part of a close-knit team you will have the support you need, but be given flexibility and autonomy to develop your thinking. Your base would be Chippenham, Wiltshire (subject to Covid-19 restrictions), however a portion of your time will be spent working from home or our other UK offices, and some UK travel will be required throughout your internship.

The Challenge

·        Supporting the creation and running of innovative marketing campaigns to ensure that our key messages are delivered to our target audiences, positioning us in the marketplace and supporting our bidding and sales activities.

·        Ensuring all marketing materials are clear, interesting, on brand and adhere to our guidelines and best practice.

·        Support the gathering and sharing of business intelligence to help the marketing team proactively support and guide the marketing team.

·        Supporting internal and external events, virtual and face-to-face, associated with our marketing campaigns. This includes our ‘Lunch & Learn’ sessions that seek to communicate our messages to our own people in an accessible and fun way.

·        Writing for a range of media and channels to communicate with a variety of audiences and managing appropriate approvals/sign-offs. This will include internal and external articles, social media thought leadership pieces to deliver the aims of our marketing campaigns.

·        Turning relatively complex information into an interesting and accessible form that is relevant to the audience we are sharing it with, encouraging diverse and inclusive thinking.

·        Playing a role in our ongoing development of photo and video stock, uploading images and videos to our Digital Asset Management platform with supporting licensing documentation.

·        Working closely with our internal clients across the country, ensuring that we provide them with the marketing support they need. This will be at every level of the company, including our central communications function.

·        Support our partner charities with at least one paid volunteering day during your year with us (subject to Covid-19 restrictions).

The Candidate

We are looking for innovative and inquisitive candidates who demonstrate the following:

·        Studying towards or have achieved a 2:1 or above in your degree.

·        Your degree can be in any relevant field, but this would typically be in English, Marketing and Communications, Business Studies or Economics.

·        You will be an excellent writer and adept at communicating complicated concepts simply, clearly and quickly. Being able to understand engineering and/or economics/business concepts will be an advantage for you.

·        You will be good at analysing the way in which businesses run, what messages we should be sharing to support our work, which audiences to share them with, and how to achieve this.

·        You will demonstrate critical thinking and analysis, be willing to educate yourself and research, and take a creative approach to problem solving.

·        You will be confident working on your own or in an office environment, but you will always have the support of the team to help you develop your skills.

·        You can work independently, safely and responsibly. You take ownership of challenges and ideas, and are looking to develop your ability to drive and lead change.

·        You will be comfortable using the Microsoft Office suite of products, and skills in using the Adobe Creative Cloud suite would also be of interest.

·        You enjoy collaborating with others to find innovative solutions, are open to meeting new people and ready to build strong relationships with peers and senior colleagues.
