Brand Homes Marketing Executive

Organisation: Ian MacLeod Distillers

Salary: Depending on experience

Location: Falkirk

Setting the scene…

We are Ian Macleod Distillers (IMD), a fourth-generation family owned and managed whisky and spirits business operating across the UK and internationally. We are producers of multi award winning premium whisky and gin with many other whiskies and spirits as part of our portfolio. Crafting Spirits With Passion, is what we do best… not only are we producers of exquisite brands, but we are also distributors and suppliers in B2B and B2C channels. We are a brand led, successful family business with our spirits (people and brands), at our very core. Driven by passion, enthusiasm, and solid business values, we are now expanding our B2C offering and continuing to invest in our brand homes (visitor centres) as our brands continue to evolve and grow.

As part of this investment, we are absolutely delighted to reawaken the sleeping giant that is Rosebank with a brand-new distillery and brand home, which is set to open early next year! 

Rosebank was revered by whisky connoisseurs the world over as the ‘King of the Lowlands’. There was a beautiful juxtaposition in one of the lightest, most floral Scotch whiskies ever, being distilled in Scotland’s heavy industry central belt. This contrast was reflected in the unique production technique of marrying worm tub condensers and triple distillation… resulting in light/full contrast in flavour, making it a category defining Lowland single malt Scotch whisky.

The early 1990s were a dark time for many in the industry as global whisky sales were in sharp decline. As a casualty of this era, Rosebank then sadly closed its doors in 1993.

Fast forward however to 2017… we acquired the site and brand, and wholeheartedly committed to breathe new life into the buildings and their surrounding community! Our mission is to revive the distillery, but our interests also extend beyond its walls. We are delighted to be able to support the regeneration agenda, bringing tourism and not to mention great whisky back to the beating heart of Falkirk!


Our opportunity…

It’s hugely exciting times for all of us here at Ian Macleod Distillers and we are therefore looking for kindred spirits to join us as we embark on this journey…

We are therefore delighted to be recruiting a brand-new role, that of Brand Homes Marketing Executive (Rosebank) as we continue preparations for the distillery opening. The role itself will be based at our newly renovated Distillery in Falkirk, therefore we are looking for local candidates who can easily commute to site for this full-time, permanent position.

Reporting into our Brand Homes Head of Sales and Marketing (Whisky), this role will share key messaging and engage with both our internal and external audience, whilst helping us to achieve sales targets. The role holder will also work closely with the Digital Marketing Manager to support our digital marketing strategy.

The successful candidate will need to be creative with a good understanding of digital marketing and social media, as they will be responsible for marketing campaigns, planning marketing events and supporting the digital marketing strategy for the Distillery. We are also looking for candidates who can clearly demonstrate that they have excellent written English and are able to produce high quality and engaging content. Alongside this, we are looking for someone who has a positive approach, oodles of enthusiasm and a strong team player, to make a real contribution to our Brand Homes team. 

This is an excellent opportunity to gain a broad range of experience across a range of marketing projects, with potential for future career development!
