THE ROLE

Ashbury is searching for an experienced Marketing Manager ready to take the next step in their career to play a pivotal role in shaping and executing our brand strategy.

Your goal is to drive awareness and understanding of Ashbury’s values, people and services to a precise B2B audience, resulting in a high-quality pipeline opportunity for our sales team to nurture (with your help).

OUR SERVICES

Discover: we provide advice, training and consultation services across all aspects of food law, offering clear and practical solutions to product information and labelling.

Launch: we deliver complete product specifications and label information for product launches, ensuring full legal compliance, honesty and accuracy.

Expand: we help our clients move into new, global markets with total compliance confidence, whilst avoiding unnecessary time, cost and enforcement action.
