Red Gorilla helps Business owners navigate their way through the business utility jungle.
Here at Red Gorilla we are experts in Business Utilities. It might not sound like the most exciting thing to be an expert in, but through many years we have become experts in our field. We make a very proud boast and it is this.
Over thirty percent of business owners sign contracts with energy, telecomms, broadband suppliers that include clauses stating the terms and conditions can be changed at any time and make the business owner responsible for reading through a 44 page document and the clause is hidden away on page 21. Business owners are busy running a business so instead of delegating to an employee, here at Red Gorilla we are happy for this to be delegated to us, it is our job! Best part is our clients don't pay us, the suppliers do!
The role
Our problem is that we are not an expert at running a website, we are not an expert at maximising our Social Media Platforms. We are not experts at running email campaigns and we have only ever made one video in our entire existence.
We know what we want to do, and how we want to do it, so we are looking for a Digital Marketing (also called an Expert Evangelist Media Gorilla!) apprentice to work alongside the Managing Director to help implement this company wide. The company will invest in media equipment to make sure that you are able to reach maximum potential in your role!

We are looking for a person with enthusiasm, energy and a thirst for expertise in this field to help us. We are looking to take our message to the business community in every format available to us.

You will work hard, have a good command of both written and spoken English and want to create websites and it's content. We need someone who can help create video content and written content, is able to deliver that content to the right people - by using all available social media channels, our website, emails and video content.
We are happy to support you with training programmes to help you progress in the role, if you don't know LinkedIn inside out, that is okay, there is a training programme for that!
Do you want to....build an amazing website? Produce high quality video content? Produce written content that is engaging? Manage social media campaigns on each of the available platforms that make people look? Are you enthusiastic? Can you work in a team? Most importantly do you have the imagination to take the most boring subject in the world and make people want to look at it.
