TravelLocal Vacancy

Marketing Executive (German speaking)

Working at TravelLocal is pretty special. We get to spend our days connecting with people from all over the world. We help travelers have truly authentic experiences (and give back to the places they visit). We’re changing travel for the better, and having fun along the way.

As the result of a merger between two very successful travel companies – TravelLocal in the UK and trip me in Germany – we are growing quickly and looking for some fresh faces to help shape our future.

Expect flexible working, a travel allowance (yes, really!) and the chance to make a real impact.

The successful applicant will work within our English-speaking in-house marketing team to work primarily on social media and email newsletters, coming up with creative campaign ideas, providing community management for our German-language social media channels and translating English into German for email newsletters and web copy.

A flair for copywriting is essential and you’ll be an effective communicator and enthusiastic team player, while also comfortable researching and developing your skills independently.

Please note: This role can be based in either the UK or Germany
