Joining this successful independent agency group, led by a number of impressive senior leaders from big agency networks such as WPP, Omnicom and Publicis, you’ll experience less politics, a slicker and more decisive culture, as well as reams of opportunity to carve your own career path as this data function embarks on an ambitious journey of growth.


You will work in partnership with the Head of Data Strategy, to devise and deliver insight and data led solutions for end clients, around personalisation, CRM targeting, measurement and optimisation across multichannel marketing (including digital media).


Building out data roadmaps to optimise marketing effectiveness, test and learn frames works and conducting customer and marketing analysis to figure out how to improve personalisation and campaign ROI will all be part of your day to day. As well as building out reporting processes and developing campaign targeting plans.


You will be an expert in measuring marketing activity and understanding the part data has to play in constantly improving return for clients.


You will be given two reports, one a media analyst, the other a strategic insights analyst, who will help you with the technical ins and outs of propensity modelling and using data to understand customer journeys, with you fronting these projects with clients.


You will then take those insights and turn it into compelling stories to present back to clients.


The CDO has ambitious plans to step change the delivery of the entire data function. Bringing it in line with modern data science environments, creating a global centre for innovation. So, you have a rare opportunity to join at a time where these changes are taking shape, and growth is certainly on the cards.


Although this agency network can brag about some really big name clients in their portfolio, they are actually also really well embedded with the SME market, working in partnership with businesses who really need and rely on them, who are deeply invested in the solutions they create and deliver.




You will be the champion and expert for data insights informing business decisions across a range of clients within FMCG, Pharma, Government and Automotive industries. Working closely with them to optimise marketing performance and customer engagement through enhanced data strategies.
