Vacancy – Marketing & Events Co-ordinator

The North Norfolk Railway operates steam and heritage diesel trains through beautiful coastal countryside between the Georgian town of Holt and the smart Victorian seaside resort of Sheringham. The 5½ mile line attracts around 165,000 passengers each year and is one of the County’s most popular tourist attractions. The railway is also home to the North Norfolkman luxury dining train and hosts a series of popular annual events including the Forties Weekend in September and the acclaimed Norfolk Lights Express in November and December.

We are seeking a Marketing & Events Co-ordinator to join our dynamic and friendly team to undertake marketing activities and to take a lead in arranging special events.

Reporting to the Commercial Manager, the role will include planning and implementing advertising and promotional campaigns using both traditional media and digital platforms, particularly updating the company website and administering social media channels.

The successful candidate will also co-ordinate the railway’s extensive series of special events, liaising with performers, exhibitors, suppliers and volunteers to stage entertaining, safe and profitable activities.

Excellent administration and computer skills are required along with attention to detail and candidates should be equally at home in front of a PC screen or “hands-on” delivering an event. Experience in a heritage railway or tourist attraction environment would be an advantage.

This is a full time position (average of 40 hours per week) which includes weekday, weekend and Bank Holiday working. Flexibility with working hours is required to meet the operational requirements and seasonal nature of the business. The role will primarily be based at Sheringham but may include working at any location on the railway.

This is key role within our organisation and an attractive salary will be offered to the right candidate based on their experience and capabilities.

To apply, please send a CV and covering letter to Graham Hukins, Commercial Manager at ghukins@nnrailway.co.uk or to find out more or for an informal conversation about the role, please call him on 01263 820800.

Closing date for applications: 30 September 2021
