Strategy Director, CRM, Loyalty & Sponsorship

Account/Project/ Strategy Manager

Greater London Permanent £60000.00 - £70000.00 per annum

Are you a forward-thinking senior strategist who’s ready to step-up and start bossing it?
Have you got a background in loyalty, content and traditional creative, but recently been more involved in customer experience, service design or UXD?
Then my client want’s you.

Working alongside their head of department to sell and respond to a vast array of different services and briefs – from brand strategy and marketing communications to loyalty, content and partnerships – all through the homogenising lens of customer experience and design thinking.

What the company will bring to the party:

  • An ambitious, energetic 30-person agency with 7+ years of award-winning work.
  • An incredibly diverse range of projects to work on. From brand strategy and marketing communications to customer experience, loyalty and monetisation.
  • Amazing clients like HSBC, Jaguar Land Rover, Saga, Superdrug and O2
  • A deep specialism in collaboration and partnerships marketing (we run O2 Priority).
  • The opportunity to run your own accounts and lead new biz pitches.
  • A seat on our super collaborative strategy-creative desk. Where the magic happens!
  • Free food and drink all-day, every-day.
  • 4pm finishes on a Friday.
  • Birthday’s off and ‘duvet days’.
  • Weekly ‘Thirsty Thursday’ agency get-togethers and drinks.
  • Much more…

What you’ll bring:

  • 4-5+ years’ experience working in-and-around loyalty programmes, creative agencies, content or social agencies and UX / CX / service design firms.
  • Fresh, visionary thinking and leadership potential, without the pretence.
  • A confident, hands-on attitude and willingness to get stuck in.
  • An entrepreneurial spirit: The ability to make something out of nothing.
  • Speed and decisiveness: Able to work within tight timeframes and to a high standard – selecting the parts of the process that will deliver maximum value.
  • A good left and right brain; both creative and analytical.
  • Good research capability: fully versed in the latest primary research techniques – particularly those used in experience design.
  • Great creative brief writing skills (you can do single-minded propositions!).
  • The confidence to put together and run great workshops with senior stakeholders
  • The ability to assimilate what you’ve learned into a set of well-designed experience maps and customer journeys (think the classic Adaptive Path diagrams but pushed further)
  • A love of all things social media, tech and innovation.
  • A passion for experience design and design thinking.
  • An agile, test-and-learn mentality. No waterfalls in sight.
  • A sense of humour.

N.B Special points will be awarded to those who can prototype in Axure, Sketch etc.

Show us what you’ve got…

Whilst we do love a good natter, what we’d really like to see is practical examples of work you’ve done in the areas outlined above. Whether it’s briefs you written, presentations you’ve given or customer journeys you’ve designed. We just want to be inspired by the smashing work we know you’ve been a part of.

Of course, we totally understand that some clients and agencies may be a little sensitive to you sharing work with us. To this end we are happy for you to redact any incriminating evidence at your discretion (names places, dates etc) or sign an NDA at your request.
Alternatively, we are very happy to give you a mock brief to respond to, but don’t want the process to feel like a drag!
And we’ll show you a good time

In return for your hard work and general awesomeness, we’re offering:

  • £70k a year salary
  • 25 days’ annual leave (this grows the longer you are with us)
  • Additional day off on your birthday
  • 5 days paid leave for emergencies
  • One ‘duvet day’ to rest, relax and get a bit of TLC
  • 3 days extra holiday for newlyweds (should you get married whilst with us)
  • 2 lie-ins (11am start) every year
  • A reward for passing your probation
  • Gym allowance
  • Mobile phone allowance
  • 4pm finish on a Friday
  • Free food and drink every day
  • Training and development (we have a ‘fast-track’ scheme)
  • Childcare vouchers (saving around £1,000 per year)
  • Maternity and Paternity benefits
