Marketing guru needed!

Do you want to be part of one of the UK leading leisure brands?

You do? Great! In that case, we have just the role for you!

The Real Mary Kings Close is one of Edinburgh’s leading attractions and we are on the lookout for our next Marketing Manager.

This is a fantastic opportunity for a Marketing professional to join the team and support us in our strategic priority to drive visitors to our leading attraction.

You’ll be driving the brand through creative marketing campaigns, customer and market insight and leading a brilliant team in the marketing and promotion of The Real Mary Kings Close. There’s lots to get your creative juices flowing leading on the brand and marketing for the attraction, ensuring campaigns delight our guests and help us generate enquiries to make the sale to drive growth and revenue.

If you want to collaborate with a brilliant team and lead a unique brand then this is the job you’re looking for! You can find out more about this fabulous job in our job description.

The Real Mary Kings Close is part of the Continuum Attraction’s Portfolio where our guests can discover secrets of Edinburgh’s only preserved 17th century street, wander through a labyrinth of Old Town alleyways, avoid the cry of gardyloo, and discover the stories of the people who lived, worked, and died here.

Shrouded in myths and mysteries, the Close is hidden beneath the characteristic and lively streets of Edinburgh’s busy thoroughfare – the Royal Mile and its warren of streets, homes, and passageways offer a truly unique 5 star visitor experience.

Continuum Attractions is a multi-million pound company employing over 450 talented people and welcoming just short of 2 million guests per year. Over 30 years we have created engaging visitor experiences that enrich, entertain and bring stories to life. We are a sustainable business with a bright future; our portfolio just keeps on growing.
