Job Description

Roxan Development Ltd is basically a niche-market plastic-product design and manufacturing facility.  We have feet in the door of farming, medical, and sports (golf, tennis) industries - our main products are advanced electronic tagging for livestock, sports clubs and golfing products, and we supply France, Germany, Denmark, Italy, Canada, USA, China, NZ and Australia. We currently employ around 20 people and turnover is heading for £2MM this year.

Home market (UK) growth has been rapid and export opportunities abound, but are still in their infancy. The graduate will be responsible to MD for analysis and planning for export growth of mainly, but not exclusively, a unique and exciting international-patent-pending product for sheep farmers.

·         Prepare focused content for marketing collateral and website

·         Undertake e-marketing as required

·         Help to deliver Roxan’s social media presence / blogs / marketing function

·         Track Roxan’s online profile internationally

·         International competitor and price monitoring.

Skills / Experience


·         Excellent communicator (both written and spoken – both on phone and in person)

·         Confident

·         Enthusiastic and professional manner

·         Computer literate, e.g. competent in MS Office

·         Enquiring mind for strong analytical and online research skills

·         Excellent understanding of (and interest in) digital media/internet/social media etc

·         Driving Licence due to limited access to office by public transport and travel requirement for role.


·         Interest and willingness to travel

·         Interest in, or ability to learn about product-related farming issues

·         Relevant experience in marketing would be an advantage

·         Fluency in at least one European language other than English would be an advantage (particularly French, Spanish, Portuguese or Italian).


·         Marketing or Business related Graduate.
