Job Description – Marketing & E-Com Chief

McTavish is a fast-growing company with functions across design, production, retail & wholesale sales, and food & beverage. The brand enjoys a reputation for delivering a high-quality standard across all these areas, combined with market leading customer service.

Over the past 2 years we have established a new apparel business, opened a café at our Byron Bay HQ, and also opened a second retail outlet in down-town Byron Bay. Discipline and frequency around marketing activity has increased significantly, and whilst we have succeeded in growing our audience, a lack of cohesive marketing strategy, and an appropriate budget, has meant that marketing activity has been sporadic, and results hard to quantify.
