Marketing Executive

We have been a leading figure in publishing for more than 500 years. We have always been a forward-looking organization, maximizing the technology for the day, but the digital revolution is bringing enormous change, fast. That same spirit of adventure and entrepreneurialism is critical to our future success. In a fast-changing publishing landscape, OUP welcomes the inquisitive, the inventive, and the ambitious; people who challenge the conventional, and pioneer the possible.

About the Role and You

As our new Marketing Executive, you’ll play an integral role in developing and executing on Academic Marketing strategies to engage with our core audiences of researchers, faculty, practitioners, and librarians. Marketing Executives work closely with managers to create campaign plans, write content, develop digital advertising campaigns, and conduct channel and performance analysis. Our culture prioritises adaptability, analytics, and collaboration. This is a fast-paced environment where you can take your foundational marketing skills to the next level through our hands-on learning approach and increased opportunities for end-to-end campaign ownership.

Proactive and clear communication is key to success as a Marketing Executive. You’ll be working closely with your own tight-knit team, but also others in our 200-person marketing department, as well as colleagues in editorial, sales, and product. You may also be representing OUP to external stakeholders such as authors, journal editors, academic society representatives, and institutional customers.   

Having already worked in a marketing role, you will have:

  • Experience understanding strategy and applying it at a tactical level
  • Experience implementing marketing campaigns
  • Ability to build strong stakeholder relationships
  • Strong analytical and communication skills
