This is an opportunity for an ambitious individual wanting to join a small marketing team and make an impact. The role of Marketing Officer is varied and offers the opportunity to be involved in several projects across The Pony Club. A key element of the role is to support and grow external partnerships, to help achieve our vision.
As a charity it is key that we focus on our charitable purpose and that the marketing team delivers results to drive the growth of the organisation and support for volunteers. Having the ability to work with all key stakeholders across the UK will be vital in this role.

Founded in England in 1929, and granted independent charitable status on 1st January 1997, there are around 330 Branches and 326 Centres in the UK alone. The Pony Club has been the starting point for a large majority of equestrian team members and medal winners.
The Pony Club is represented in no less than 27 countries with a worldwide membership exceeding 110,000 making it the largest association of young riders in the world. Membership is available to children until the end of The Pony Club Year or the Centre Membership Subscription Year, whichever is relevant, in which they become 25 years old.

  • Managing The Pony Club Social Media accounts with the support of the Marketing Intern.

  • Managing the monthly Membership Newsletter and utilising the email marketing tool effectively

  • Recruiting Trade Stands and Fence Sponsors for National Pony Club events

  • Supporting the wider organisation with promotion of events and specific projects

  • Working with external agencies to manage design and print projects

Skills and Experience desired:

  • Marketing experience working in a charity would be desirable but not essential.

  • Understand the importance of ROI in Marketing and a track record of achieving results.

  • Experience of working with volunteers

  • Attention to detail and ability to challenge.
