We are looking for a vibrant, experienced and ambitious marketing executive to join our award-winning team, and play a decisive role in the next stage of our growth…
*** UPDATE: 11 JUNE 2018 – POSITION FILLED ***
Somebody who stands out from the crowd, but blends perfectly within our team.
Multi award-winning, ISO 9001 quality management accredited, independent and therefore unbiased. A team with nearly 100 years’ technical experience in ‘innovative’ hydraulics system design and equipment supply. And a thoroughly global reach and outlook.
Hydraulics Online has supplied customers in 130 countries worldwide to date. Yes, 130 countries. We have earned awards, recognition and respect from those inside and outside of our industry for what we do, most notably: the Federation of Small Businesses, the Department for International Trade, Manchester Metropolitan University and the South Cheshire Chamber of Commerce.
That’s because despite being an ‘online’ business we don’t believe in being automated; we’re all about real people, knowledge, relationships, service. Real added value not just product sales.
A new role within our business with no catch
We are now looking for a standout, experienced and ambitious marketing executive to join our award-winning team, and play a decisive role in the next stage of our growth.
This is a new role within our business: a role that can be shaped by the successful candidate with the support of forward-thinking, progressive but pragmatic colleagues.

There’s no catch – we just believe flexibility and striking the right home/work balance are crucial to ensure a happy, high-performing team who delight in giving great service delivered by the same shared values.
There’s also no closing date for applications; we’ll keep looking until we strike gold and find the right person.
