Product Marketing Specialist, UK

Who we are
Toupret is a leading brand in fillers for painters and decorators, building and construction professionals, and DIY enthusiasts. The business was established in France in 1938 and remains a family-owned business, with a commercial head office, manufacturing plants and a warehouse close to Paris.

What we do
Toupret UK has embarked on an ambitious growth plan to grow the filler market for professional customers and grow Toupret sales in all sectors, channels and geographies. It also plans to grow its DIY business by launching new ranges focused on the DIY end user.

Toupret’s marketing activity has expanded quickly to support these ambitious business objectives, to grow Toupret brand awareness and brand loyalty among professionals and DIYers, and to support its growing key accounts and end-users on a day-to-day basis.

Role purpose
Reporting to the Marketing Manager, the Product Marketing Specialist will work across many functions to champion the product needs of end customers and in doing so, to support the business’s growth targets. Key interfaces are with customers, the French product marketing team, sales team, operations team, outside suppliers and industry bodies.

The Product Marketing Specialist is responsible for developing, delivering and owning product and technical resources to facilitate marketing and community-based activities that drive the marketing plan. Acting as Toupret UK’s champion for end-users’ product needs in the professional and DIY sectors, the purpose of the role is to:

  • Provide product training materials and event management support to the sales team and the Category Manager.
  • Deliver product and technical content to be used for educational and marketing purposes across marketing channels.
  • Own UK product data integrity: managing, updating and communicating to the organisation.
  • Respond to incoming end-user product and technical support queries and coordinate with other functions to resolve questions and issues where necessary.
  • Work cross-functionally to identify and implement UK product compliance requirements.

Who we are looking for
This role will suit someone who is keen to get on board with a small but growing and dynamic business. To succeed, you will need to be a practical, dynamic self-starter with a high degree of initiative, a positive attitude and a ‘hands-on’ mindset. We are looking for a people-person who is excited by the opportunity to be the ‘voice of the customer’, but also has a keen interest in learning and communicating the technical side of the product. A high degree of interpersonal and influencing skills at all levels of the business are also essential.

You should have a degree in marketing, business or a technical subject and experience in a product-focused marketing team and/or experience in the DIY, Building and Construction or Painting and Decorating sectors (min. two years).

Some knowledge of the French language, written and spoken (or an interest in learning this) would be an advantage.

What it’s like to work at Toupret
We are a small but rapidly growing team. Currently, 2021 is shaping up to be the biggest and most exciting year in Toupret UK’s history. Day-to-day life is fast paced but varied and exciting. Our approach is to always be flexible and adaptable; looking for the next opportunity and we enjoy turning our hand to the latest new challenge.

We are on the move, both literally and figuratively. In 2020, we have been mainly working from home with a small office in Croydon, but in 2021, we plan to move to a new office for those who wish to be office based, enabling a flexible choice of working from home or in the office, or a mixture of both.

If you’re ready for your next fast-paced challenge, we look forward to hearing from you.

Toupret is committed to equal opportunities and values diversity in its workforce.
