You will be driving the science behind great marketing communications, ensuring that customer contact is always optimized for clients. In this particular case the agency manages the loyalty programme here in the UK for this well-known retail brand, so you will own the agency's innovative approach to data strategy which drives the overall CRM programme for this client.

You will play a leadership role in the sourcing of insights through multiple channels as well as ensuring the measurement and tracking of all communications to the end client.

You will of course be client facing, comfortable working with creatives, planners and analysts to ensure data is driving all targeted campaigns.

Overall the team is responsible for search and social trend analysis, bringing insight to life for your retail client, working with digital and millions of rows of transactional data, providing campaign reporting, building robust test and learn strategies and CRM programme design.

The culture is dynamic, fast paced and innovative.


  • Extensive experience in data driven CRM either from agency or client side, working with both digital data (particularly social media) as well as customer and transactional data
  • Proven delivery of data strategy including test and learn, comms performance measurement and campaign evaluation for large scale customer led clients
  • Track record in managing and inspiring teams
  • Excellent written and oral communication skills
