Vipac currently seeks a savvy Marketing Coordinator with a dynamic, go-getting attitude who exudes positivity and talent.

Helping variety serve its role as the spice of life, you’ll support the brands for Vipac, its two subsidiaries (AutoTest and Gas Technology Services), and our onsite café. Working closely with the Marketing & Communications Manager and Graphic Designer, your key responsibilities will include:

  • Draft and edit content for web pages, news articles, case studies and press releases.
  • Liaise with colleagues to construct marketing briefs and secure publicity approval.
  • Develop and update web pages, Electronic Direct Mail (eDMs), business cards, brochures and flyers.
  • Use WordPress and Google Analytics to continually improve content, usability and SEO for websites:, and
  • Update and maintain contact lists for marketing support activities and maintain an up-to-date image library of services, products and logos.
  • Provide general support to the marketing team including event management.
  • Promote a positive can-do ethos, while being deadline driven and able to achieve outcomes with minimal direct supervision.

This role will suit someone qualified in Marketing, PR, Communications, Business or Graphic Design, who ideally possesses WordPress experience, knowledge or interest in how SEO works, and a familiarity with graphic design software (e.g. InDesign and Photoshop). Experience with MailChimp and Google Analytics would be advantageous.

This is a unique opportunity for someone who seeks ownership of the outcomes, craves diversity, thrives on challenges and is keen to juggle priorities to help deliver on a solid, progressive marketing plan in an ever changing business environment.
