About the role

We’re looking for a fun, ambitious and enthusiastic Digital Marketing Executive/Content Creator to join our team. Shot Blast Media is the leading visual media company in West Yorkshire who specialise in industrial filmmaking. We combine video production, 3D animation, 2D animation, virtual reality and more to deliver high quality films and content for companies looking to use the power of video to enhance their company’s marketing and communications.

This role would suit someone who has worked within a marketing role for the past two years and is looking for their next challenge. For someone looking to grow their career with a company and become a part of shaping the future of video and building a business. In this role you wouldn’t be another cog lost in a large team, you would be part of a small team and would be integral to the success of the business. With this will come opportunities to grow and be rewarded for your hard work and input.

Finding the right personality fit is important to us, as our shared values and attitude is what contributes towards the success of the business. We’re looking for someone with a genuine interest in visual content whether that’s someone with a passion for films or documentaries or someone who creates content in their own time for their own passion projects etc. Our marketing role has existed since the early beginnings of the business so we’re looking for someone to work with the foundation that’s been created and has the drive to take this to the next level. We’re looking for someone with great ideas and someone with some experience under their belt already who can take ownership of this unique role and run with it.

As we’re a small company this role is quite fluid so while there are aspects of the role we’d like to ensure we retain we’re open to how someone can shape this based on their previous experience, skillset and interests. The candidate will need to be a self starter and feel confident to lead on ideas that can benefit the businesses interests. You will be responsible for your own work and will work alongside the team to develop and shape the marketing and business as a whole.
