Why did you choose your current mobile provider, TV service or broadband provider?

They’re potentially all with the same company for simplicity sake, right?

Or did you make your choice based on the best price? Right handset? Best coverage? Fastest data speed? Right channel choice? or Best value?

Or maybe, because you felt a connection to the brand?

It’s clear people make purchase decisions for many reasons. But the emotive connection to brand, like a sense it gets you and offers you what you need is what’s important here.

This is your sweet spot – helping brands plan and strategies.

You’ll be joining a business on a journey of change within the consumer telecoms and media space. They reflect multiple consumer facing brands and will be using these to diversify their offering. Expanding their reach to customer segments they’ve not previously focused on. So you’re going to find plenty of scope to bring new thinking and ideas to the table.

It’s also what you do every day… by getting inside the head of the customer, you know what makes them tick. Making them see more than just a price tag, and can translate this into effective brand strategy and marketing planning.

Insight and understanding the customer is what shapes your thinking and decisions. It’s the lifeblood which fuels everything you do.

Working with proposition teams, being the voice of the customer. Making sure the complexity they can create is simplified, helping to identify solutions to the challenges they face in developing the right propositions to bring to market to meet customer needs.

Distilling key customer messaging, providing guidance to the teams responsible for customer and brand communications in how to articulate this, and ensuring it connects back to the company’s brand journey.

You’re not the kind of person afraid to challenge concepts. You’re influential and comfortable persuading people on your strategies, able to articulate yourself and convey ideas in ways which get people onboard.

  • Massive journey of brand change just beginning, so plenty of scope to have a demonstrable impact. Especially in evolving the brand plan and marketing strategy
  • Scope for big, meaningful projects, and you having ownership and autonomy on a number of these will certainly add value to your CV
