Assistant Brand Manager

Are you a talented marketing executive who is looking for a new challenge? Do you aspire to work for a purposeful, sustainable, and growing ethical brand where you can play a key role in delivering our supplements relaunch?

Based in our award-winning Bristol head office, we are looking for an Assistant Brand Manager to join our Pukka Life (Marketing) team. The role is a permanent full-time role, with a competitive salary of up to £35k per annum depending on experience. This sits alongside a benefits package designed to nurture your wellbeing and personal development.

About the role

As Assistant Brand Manager you’ll play a key role in the development of the supplements part of Pukka and our relaunch of the entire portfolio, to further Pukka’s ambition to nurture healthier, happier lives through powerful organic plants.

Supporting the Supplements Lead, you’ll be leading parts of an exciting supplements repositioning. You’ll be responsible for finalising artwork across all products and markets for the new product development and the roll-out of our exciting new packaging. You will develop the copy and required marketing files, ensuring sign off with markets and regulatory/legal teams.

You will also have key project lead status on renovation and portfolio rationalisation projects: including the artwork changes needed for Brexit, manage the delisting of products, and support markets with existing products with in-year launches. You’ll be a key team member in project meetings, developing gate papers and business cases alongside other functional business partners.

Working closely with eCommerce and the Natural Channel/Organic teams you’ll foster a collaborative relationship ensuring all inputs and insights are always fed into the development process across the herbal and artwork stages, and relevant documentation is created.

What’s so exciting is you’ll have the chance to work in a proactive, agile and entrepreneurial environment where you’ll have the opportunity to make a big impact with your activity.

About You

To be our Assistant Brand Manager you’ll have experience gained preferably from working in the supplement category, or from an FMCG marketing role and preferably have a graduate level qualification (or equivalent).  Experience of marketing, innovation development and/or project management is needed, as well as being able to demonstrate your commercial understanding.

Highly organised and able to plan and maintain delivery in complex and fast-paced operational areas, you’ll have proven experience of working hands-on across numerous complex projects. A large component of the role involves pack design, artwork and product development so you’ll need to have a strong eye for design and critical attention to detail, and experience of working with design teams, artwork creation, and signing off copy and back of pack.

A creative approach to problem solving is a must alongside having a positive mindset in amongst the complexities and challenges. Able to demonstrate a strong creative flair, you’ll have a desire and ambition to always think and do differently, to innovate and deliver excellence. You’ll have a naturally inquisitive approach, leading to the ability to learn and grasp new concepts quickly.

Strong communication skills and an ability to respectfully work with people across the business is vital to our success. A true team player, you’ll also be motivated to deliver excellence and have the ability to inspire others to do the same.

If you are to be our Assistant Brand Manager you’ll thrive at pace, be resilient dealing with ambiguity, and turn challenge and obstacles into decisive and purposeful action. You’ll be someone who is passionate about contributing to a purpose-led mission – everything you do is designed to inspire people to nurture healthier, happier lives through powerful organic plants, combined with a personal health and wellbeing journey.
