Founded with family values, that remain as true today, as they were in 1978, the Cornish Holiday Cottages team look forward to meeting you.

 

Content Marketing Executive

Cornish Holiday Cottages seek a talented, driven and self-motivated Content Marketing Executive to support their marketing goals, helping to further their reach and enhance the CHC brand and vision.

Are you a marketing whizz and a creative thinker with an ability to use data to inform decisions and measure success?

Do you have at least three years of digital marketing experience and a proven track history of success?

Who are we?

Cornish Holiday Cottages is a small, holiday letting agent, representing around 85 holiday homes in the Falmouth and Helford River area. Our small team of six operate out of our office in the centre of Mawnan Smith village – the heart of the area we cover.

With the right place to stay, holidays are made. It’s something Ruth Austen knew when she set up this business in 1978 and something we swear by today. We pour over each property in our portfolio, making sure it ticks all the boxes so we can find the right fit for each guests’ holiday habits.

Our little team are a close knit bunch, who look out for each other and enjoy our time together, so much so that we’ve just installed a lovely kitchen and new meeting space, where we will enjoy a team lunch once a week.

We’re human (and dog centred) and we care about the natural landscape and our big blue seas. If you want to be part of something small with a big heart then we would love to hear from you.

In January 2021 we launched a new website and booking system, along with our unique area guide, which showcases our position as the market leader in the Falmouth and Helford River area. Come join us and help build on our brand philosophy and let’s create some zingy new content to dazzle our customers.
