Data Strategy & Insights Director

  • Accountability, ownership and trust to pitch, lead and innovate
  • Join a team growing at pace due to quality of talent and in turn highly successful output
  • Inspiring senior leadership team


LOCATION -             Central London/Remote to begin with

SALARY -                  £80k - £100k & benefits

Having exclusively built over half of the Marketing Sciences function across the last 2 years, we can vouch for the exceptional quality of talent this agency has managed to attract; because of the impressive step change they’ve made from traditional data planning and analytics to advanced data science services and insights consultancy, driven by the vision of their Director.


With intent, innovation and training and development at the heart of their culture you can be confident you will be joining a team which delivers. Time and time again.

As always, ensuring data is at the heart of marketing communications and helping to build the data resource for this purpose through defining and delivering data strategies is part of this role – but there’s more. The role requires thought leadership from a data usage perspective, strong team leadership and the ability to solve broader business problems and answer questions using analytics and insights. You will be leading on pitches and big projects with the freedom to really take accountability for decisions and delivery.


You will be managing a team of data strategy and insights consultants ranging in experience from junior through to senior. You will report into an impressive, entrepreneurial, and ambitious leader, who has played a key part in growing and developing the overall data offering for this agency over the last few years. Therefore, theirs is one of the fastest growing teams within the Marketing Sciences function so there is still lots of room for personal development and influence upwards through the ranks, even at this level.


  • Educated to degree level in a relevant subject; numerate or marketing related
  • Experience in building data strategies and managing the delivery of analytical and insights driven projects for large scale brands
  • A strong understanding of CRM and digital platforms and confident talking to clients about the ‘art of the possible’ in terms of highly personalised, customer led marketing and data science solutions
  • Experience in leading or managing teams is essential
  • Ideally experience of pitching for new business
  • Ideally experience from management consultancy, or broader business strategy consulting
