CROSSMARK Tour Manager in South Yarmouth, Massachusetts
Marketing Werks, a CROSSMARK company, is hiring for a Tour Manager. The Tour Manager is a dynamic, energetic, and motivating leader whose primary responsibility is to inform and educate consumers on our client’s product. This is a dedicated position for the duration of the tour and requires 100% travel. The Tour Manager’s primary responsibility is to manage the team and event site (as well as setup and breakdown) to ensure flawless execution and engage with participants through various programming elements. Participants (and participant’s pets) arrive onsite, register on a tablet, and begin their journey through the Seresto Circle of Love experience. The Tour Manager will be responsible for leading a mobile marketing tour, which will visit 6 markets and 6 large pet-friendly events from May to September, including managing staff, driving the box truck (potentially across the country) and acting as a brand educator/spokesperson.

Since the major events are scattered throughout the summer, after wrapping up each of the main events, the Managers will store the truck and event equipment, and fly home.
About a week prior to the next scheduled event, the Managers will fly back to the previous market where the truck was stored, pick up the truck, and drive to the next market. Repeat this process in each market.
