Marketing Assistant Ref:3005934

Spin Up Science Ltd ( was incorporated in 2018 to support entrepreneurial scientists, inspire future innovators and establish the UK as a centre for technology commercialisation. We work to connect scientists and engineers across the UK’s academic institutions with local industry through training programs, invited talks, technology showcases, and hands-on opportunities to work alongside enterprises to foster local scientific innovation ecosystems.

We are expanding our team in Liverpool and so we are looking for a marketing assistant to work directly with the marketing team and CEO to carry out day-to-day marketing tasks and support with building and enacting the overall marketing strategy. The role is varied and would involve delivery of self-directed initiatives to further our core goals of developing entrepreneurship in scientists, as well as showcasing the local scientific start-up community.

The marketing assistant will support the delivery of Spin Up Science academy digital programs by being involved in all aspects of the process. This will include working with the SUS team to support building the programs to align with a strong marketing campaign. They will create marketing materials, following company brand guidelines, to promote programs and other events with the opportunity to work alongside the companies we support in our Ventures activities. Furthermore, they will assist with the circulation of marketing materials, primarily through email and social media, as well as support other promotional activities and events.

The marketing assistant will help with creating visuals, videos and blog posts for our website, newsletter and social media. The role will have a strong focus on supporting our social media strategy, through scheduling regular content on our social media channels (LinkedIn, Twitter and Instagram) and monitoring and engaging with the social media activity of local community groups, stakeholders and customers.

The role will be remote with the opportunity to meet with the Liverpool based team members regularly, and will also include regular communication with the wider UK team through digital communication (Zoom meetings and Slack). There will also be opportunities for the whole Spin Up Science team to get together face-to-face by holding meetings in either Liverpool or at our head office in Bristol.
