Lead the marketing offering for this leading NZ luxury designer brand.

On behalf of Nodi Handmade Rugs and Carpet, The Pond Recruitment is looking for a proven senior marketer to join our clients' growing and ambitious business, designers and producers of naturally sourced, handcrafted rugs and carpets. This is a leadership role working directly with Oliva Moon, a talented founder and leader who has built a rocketship brand and company with big growth plans in the next 5 years. You’ll play a critical part in growing this brand in new markets, always delivering on Nodi’s promise to enrich and elevate people's lives by creating a natural place of connection between people and their everyday living and working environments.

As the Head of Marketing, you will drive brand consideration and create the best brand and partnership experience. With an equally strong focus on trade customers in the Architecture and Design sector, the ever-important end consumer, and bringing the two together cohesively. You must believe in the power of a customer-first mindset and put them at the heart of everything you deliver. It’ll be a fast-paced role encompassing brand, products, content, and digital communications for customers and nationwide residential homeowner and commercial audiences.

You will develop and implement new go-to-market strategies, drive the release and sale of new product ranges, and overall brand awareness for an established brand with an offering of high-end luxury products. You will also create a new digital and social media marketing plan, partnership trade programs, sales team enablement tools, and market events to promote and align the brand at the highest level with the top end of the design, interiors, and architectural industries.
