Product Affairs Manager
Working with You is the Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles brand promise to our customers and colleagues. Because for more than 60 years, we've been working closely with, learning from and delivering for, organisations large and small throughout the UK. It means that we've become the wheels that keep organisations going in the right direction – creating business partnerships that last by providing vehicles that perform. In addition to our B2B credentials, we're also responsible for highly desirable 4x4s, and campervans and people carriers which offer freedom, flexibility and fun to families across the UK.
With a rich heritage, we have a huge following of enthusiasts from around the world. It's all thanks to our ability to punch above our weight as a team. And as part of our team, you'll go to work enhancing our long-standing reputation, rolling your sleeves up and building the public face of the brand, promoting our commercial and retail products via all unpaid media channels, to ensure our reputation and sustained success for the next 60 years as we switch to a more digital and electric future.
We have an exciting opportunity for you to join our team as Product Affairs Manager on a part time, one year secondment. This pivotal role is responsible for managing all PR for the brand, from press fleet to launches and releases to websites, as well as collaborating with our supporting agencies, other brand departments and senior management.
You need to be a big team player and enjoy talking to people from all areas of our business, while also being confident to work alone on projects and with media. You'll know who's who in the world of journalism and influencers, and understand how to prioritise a busy to-do list.
In this role, you have the opportunity to make a real difference and to support the business to succeed with its ambitions for the future.
We have a unique culture, built on diversity, difference and a determination to succeed that inspires us all. Across our brands and group functions, we are striving to learn from each other, encourage each other and regularly challenge each other to think differently. Our people have a true passion for what they do, a genuine desire to go further for customers and to give their own careers real momentum at the same time.
So what can we offer you? As an inclusive employer we know people value different things, so along with a competitive salary, car, and discretionary bonus, we offer a wide range of flexible benefits to suit you and your lifestyle including hybrid working.
We're excited. Are you? We'd love to hear from you…
