Join the Crew - Careers with Harken


At Harken we expect a lot from ourselves. We take enormous pride in designing, building and servicing the best rope handling hardware in the world.  And the commitment to our customers doesn't end after the sale - it begins! We back our products with the most attentive technical and customer support possible. Help is only a phone call or email away, whether you're racing in the Americas' Cup, cruising the pacific or inspecting a wind turbine.

What's it like to work here? Although Harken have grown and diversified, the values established by Peter and Olaf Harken of working hard, delivering excellence, and having fun every day haven't changed. We're definitely not normal 9-to-5er's. It's assumed we're more than competent. We're paid to be curious, make suggestions, and are responsible for outstanding execution. We're regularly asked to do things we've never done before. We're expected to take chances and are supported even in failure. Actively looking after our team and encouraging them to grow and learn is part of our DNA, whether that's providing access to role-related training or handing out chocolate on a Thursday.

Think you'd fit in great here? Harken UK are looking for a Marketing Executive to join the Industrial division of their organisation. Working from their head office in Lymington, as part of a small but dynamic team, you will be responsible for technical copy writing and distribution of marketing material through an array of different channels.

You will work closely with our existing customers to create case studies, go out on the road with our sales team to capture images and footage of our products in use as well as attend trade shows and other industry events. You will need to be confident in conversing with industry professionals in a language that they can relate to, have an outgoing 'can do' attitude and enjoy the challenges that working within the industrial sector inevitably brings.

You will need to be self-motivated, have excellent attention to detail and be able to confidently and independently generate and pitch ideas.  This is an ideal opportunity for anyone who wants to take the next step in their career, relishes a challenge and wants to work for a company who actively encourages their staff to grow and learn.
