We’re Hiring A Marketing Director!


We are looking for an experienced individual to lead our Vocal department in the role of Marketing Director. The role will change daily, so you must be adaptable and not afraid of change as our evolving business is constantly changing (for the better). We have grown by 21 new team members over the last 12-months and are currently looking for an additional 20. It is an exceptionally exciting time for Hudson Outsourcing with our expansion into the US. We have grown a highly profitable business and we’re now looking to significantly expand our Senior Team.

With clients in 32 countries, you must be willing to research, understand and implement projects across a range of different cultures and manage a busy and stressful workload in varying time zones, operating in global markets.

The commercial Vocal division is relatively new for Hudson Outsourcing, but you will be instrumental into shaping it into a leading division for our firm. You will be supported by a wider team of 45 staff here in the UK, a wider team in the States and a Development Team in India. We expect the Vocal team to grow from seven to at least twenty in the next 18-months.

  • You will be a member of the senior management team and report quarterly during management meetings, so previous experience at this level is required for the role.
  • You will feed into our Global Strategy and work closely with our CEO and Managing Director who you will report into via KPI meetings.
  • This will be a busy department once up and running, working with upwards of 100 clients per month within 24 months of launch, so the ability to understand recruitment trigger points in advance is essential to ensure we can service all clients that require our support.
