Group Marketing Manager(s) 

Hello we’re innocent, we’re Europe’s favourite little smoothie company. We’re looking for 3 marketers to join the team.

What are we up to?

We’ve come a long way from selling smoothies in West London in 1999. Today innocent’s healthy little drinks are flying off the shelves across Western Europe, we’re achieving meaty double-digit growth, and selling over £250m each year of smoothies, juices and coconut water.

Our healthy tasty drinks and unique way of doing business are still the keys to recruiting new drinkers across the region and standing out from the crowd. And we’re launching more innovation than ever, to ensure that we lead the rapidly evolving healthy drinks category.

We have recently developed an ambitious 2020 growth strategy to become Europe’s favourite little healthy drinks company. Naturally the brand and innovation are at the centre of this strategy.

So what are the roles?

To continue to power our rapid growth we’re expanding the team and looking for three exceptional leaders within our Group Marketing & Innovation team (our term for Global Marketing team):

Group Marketing Manager – Comms & Brand Equity

Group Marketing Manager – Product Portfolio and Innovation 

GrowthGroup Marketing Manager – Ideation and Category Expansion

These leadership roles are ideal for top notch marketers who dream big and deliver, relish accountability, are creatively inspiring and commercially savvy, and comfortable balancing insight and intuition in their decision-making. And we would expect these marketing leaders to be on track to be a country or group marketing director within 2-3 years.

The Group Marketing & Innovation team are based at Fruit Towers in West London, and are responsible for leading the 3-year-plan for the brand, owning and evolving the brand positioning, leading creative development, leading innovation, consumer insights, and partnering with our Heads of Marketing in UK&I, France, DACH and Scandinavia to shape winning in-market plans.

The headline responsibilities of the three roles are:

Group Marketing Manager – Comms & Brand Equity
Building innocent’s pan-European brand equity through leading multi-market comms and media initiatives that make our drinkers’ hearts skip a beat

Group Marketing Manager – Product Portfolio and Innovation Growth
Leading growth in our existing heartland of smoothies, juices and coconut water through leading innovation, renovation and activation initiatives that accelerate our recruitment of new drinkers

Group Marketing Manager – Ideation and Category Expansion
Leading brand expansion into new needs, occasions and categories – with the hands-on creative and commercial mindset to take a (metaphorically) blank sheet of paper and make it our next £50m opportunity 

We want to recruit leaders who share our vision of building a business that we’re proud of. We are passionate about sustaining our unique company culture, our long-term commitment to sustainability and giving 10% of profits to charity, and our company values (responsible, commercial, natural, entrepreneurial, generous).


In return for everything you can bring, we can offer you an exciting, challenging role in a fast-growing and dynamic business, with plenty of career opportunities in the UK and across Europe as well as a competitive rewards package.  We also have some great clubs, a free breakfast and as many smoothies as you can shake a stick at. Take a look at our reward page for more details.

Does this sound like you? If so, we’d love to hear from you.

Dolly Parton may have worked Nine to Five but you don’t have to. We’re all about being healthy and happy here at innocent so we’re open to a chat about flexible working. No promises, but we reckon that if it's good for you, then it's good for us.
