Marketing Manager, Retail "Outlet" (Saint Petersburg)

Key Objectives:
· Firmly establish the St Petersburg Retail Property as a distinctive and appealing shopping and tourist destination venue within the retail landscape of the 90-minute drivetime Catchment Area.
· Execute the Consumer Marketing Strategy on an annual basis, as directed by UK Head of Marketing, having contributed to it by taking into account local circumstances and opportunities to optimise the strategy for the local market.
· Liaise with Marketing Manager of Moscow to ensure efficiencies in the operation of two Centers in the two city locations. The objective is to advertise and promote the St Petersburg Center in the same way as Moscow Center (as much as is practically possible) using the same principal Moscow-based suppliers.
· Identify those activities (or time-periods) which have to be operated differently in St Petersburg compared to Moscow. Devise action plans to develop and execute those activities. (For example, Tourism Marketing is expected to be a higher priority in St Petersburg, with a dedicated annual promotional programme.)
· Maximise consumer visitor numbers (‘footfall’) into the Outlet Centre.
· Maximise new customer generation (‘first-time’ visitors) by continuing to encourage trial of this relatively new retail sector in St Petersburg area.
· Develop relevant actions to maximise the frequency of repeat visits by consumers over time.
· Assist Retail Management colleagues in maximising Spend per Head and Turnover Rent. These objectives are based on the Retail KPIs of Conversion and ATV, which are the responsibility of Retail Management. The joint objective is to convert visits into retail sales revenue in-store.
· To successfully exploit online communications media, which are becoming increasingly important over time. In particular, to focus on effective reach and frequency amongst consumers using mobile devices.
· Develop a cost-effective programme to attract high-spending tourist visitors, both Russian citizens visiting St Petersburg and foreign nationals as tourists. It is expected that Chinese visitors through nearby Pulkovo airport will be a key focus.
· Management and analysis of local market and Centre performance data, which is an increasingly important part of the Consumer Marketing function within Outlet retailing.

Role and Responsibilities:
· In liaison with the UK Head Office specialists and the Marketing Manager in Moscow, plan and execute the strategic promotional and advertising campaigns throughout the calendar year. It is expected that campaigns used to develop Moscow will be used also in St Petersburg.
· This role is 80% tactical and 20% strategic. The Marketing Manager has the opportunity to be commercially engaged at strategic level, but must be able to plan, co-ordinate and monitor regular, routine retail promotional activity at local level.
· Using high-profile advertising media across the calendar year, create high brand awareness and boost peak visitor numbers during campaign periods. There is a requirement to obtain synergy with suppliers and campaigns used in Moscow. Key suppliers in Moscow will be used for both Centres.
· In liaison with Marketing Manager in Moscow, develop on-site promotions and events within a formalised annual ‘Marketing Promotional Calendar’ that drive visitors into the Outlet Centre and sales through the Tenant Outlet stores.
· In liaison with Marketing Manager in Moscow, manage the contracted Marketing Services suppliers allocated to the Centre, planning, producing and controlling the delivery of services.
· Provide regular weekly, monthly and quarterly reports outlining the activities during the period and relevant associated information.
· Keep key Tenant information up-to-date for presentations to consumers. This is especially the case with digital media and company website. Information Boards and Mall Guide leaflets should be cost-effectively managed to be as up-to-date as possible.
· Plan, introduce and develop a formal Loyalty Scheme with key Tenant participation. The principal requirement is to ensure that retail offers made by Tenants of the Company which participate in loyalty schemes at any competitor Centre offer the same terms at Moscow.
· Develop appropriate packages of POS materials, in liaison with Retail Management. The principal Marketing responsibility is mall decoration and POS for store windows. In-store POS is the principal area for Retail Management responsibility.
· Measure and evaluate the success, or otherwise, of Marketing activities within a competitive context, in order to demonstrate the added value and/or contribution of Marketing strategy to sales or footfall, or other learnings for future benefits.
· In liaison with the Retail Manager, help to involve the Tenant retailers in the annual program of promotional events to increase footfall, Average Spend per Head (visitors) and Turnover Rent.
· Identify, and build a business relationship with, the marketing decision-maker of each of the key brand Tenants on site. Whilst this is likely within the top-20 sellers that contribute 45% of sales revenue, account needs to be taken of those close to current Turnover Rent thresholds.
· Manage and evaluate the market research measures, such as Exit Polls, ad hoc Research, statistics data, online analytics, ‘Mystery Shopper’ studies etc and analyse trends over time.
· Measure and evaluate the success, or otherwise, of promotional campaigns in order to demonstrate the added value and/or contribution to sales or footfall, or other learnings for future benefits.
· Manage/co-ordinate the content and functions of the website, Social Media and other online communications activity for the Centre.
· Manage the local PR presence, in order to create the maximum publicity coverage in non-paid-for media channels within the local catchment and in the local community.
· Plan, develop and execute an appropriate strategy to attract high-spending tourists.
· Control and report monthly on Expenditure against the annual Marketing Budget.
· Deputise, where necessary, for the Retail Operations Director (including any required duty management in a rota system).

Person Specification:
· Good experience of reputable consumer goods or services marketing, preferably (but not essential) in a retail or shopping centre environment.
· Outgoing and confident operator able to liaise with the multiple contacts within the Centre, especially Tenant store Managers.
· Experience and expertise in working with content for online media is essential.
· Must have experience of dealing with national/regional media, especially radio and outdoor.
· Must be capable of managing website and Social Media content on a daily basis.
· Should have operational experience of database marketing.
· Must be an enthusiastic and competent data analyst. Constant evaluation and learnings for future improvements are key requirements for success in Outlet retail.

· Excellent personal presentation and communication skills are expected.
· Competent in MS Office, especially Excel and PowerPoint.
· Highly organised – able to work without constant supervision.

Desired Personal Attributes:
· This role will suit the self-confident, ambitious and internationally-aware individual looking for freedom to express themselves in a small team environment.
· Resilient and determined, with some degree of entrepreneurial flair.
· Commitment – working under pressure and meeting deadlines is a key part of the function.
· Good ambassador for a multi-national organisation, with high standard of personal and business ethics.
