About us

Ciret Limited was established in 1961 as Homekey Limited, initially supplying top quality brushes throughout the South of England. From its Portsmouth base, the business expanded to become an established supplier to decorator’s merchants, builder’s merchants and independent hardware stores throughout the UK, and in 2005 moved to our present location in Havant, just outside Portsmouth.

In this same year Homekey was acquired by the Ciret Group and was soon renamed Ciret Limited. In 2012, Ciret acquired Leeds based Robert J Hall one of the oldest decorating companies on record which can be traced back to 1783. The Ciret tradition has grown from an invention reaching back for millennia. People have always seen the need to beautify their homes and to do so good painting tools have always been essential.

Up until 100 years ago, approximately 90% of these tools consisted of paint brushes, which along with the hand axe, is one of the oldest tools known to man. Today decorating tools comprise a wide diversity of products, to which Ciret has made a significant contribution in developing.

Currently growing at 6% annually Ciret supplies to over 1500 customer across the retail environment, from small independent stores through to larger retail groups with national coverage, supplying both branded and own-label product lines.

The successful applicant will work closely with our sales and product management teams to look at how we can promote and optimise sell-through with our extensive retail customer base. There will be a responsibility to create, implement and feedback on promotional campaigns, analyse the effectiveness of these campaigns using this knowledge to guide future activities.

The role will also demand that you gain an understanding from the end users of our products as to what influences their purchasing decisions and build campaigns from this. There will be involvement in new product launches, industry events and retail customer demonstration days.

The role also encompasses:

managing the company marketing budget

monitoring competitor activity

looking at new and effective ways to promote our products in store

creating content for all our advertising mediums

building a full business marketing plan

create and implement an effective social media strategy

manage third party agencies and designers for any outsourced services including booking advertising space across both digital and traditional print media.

You will be a marketing manager or senior marketing executive with experience of multi product portfolios sold through a large retail customer base. Specific product knowledge for our industry would be ideal but not essential.

You will possess an ability to manage several projects at once and build close relationships with the field sales teams. Experience of digital and print marketing concepts and techniques is required, along with being able to travel around the UK, with the sales teams, to maximise how our products present in store to the end consumer. A team player with an ability to look beyond the obvious solution will be a prerequisite.
