Description

  • Agile working environment.
  • Hugely successful Financial Services Institution.
  • Manage a team of 14.

Here is an exceptional opportunity for an experienced Head of Marketing or Senior level agency candidate to join a fast growing and innovative Financial Services business based in central Bristol.  You will build and lead the Marketing Comms team but not in the conventional way; this is not PR, media, internal comms, this is a new way agile way of working, setting up "squads" to deliver fast paced customer campaigns.

What you'll be doing

As I said, this is a new agile way of working.  Your Marketing Managers will sit in individual squads, each with a different campaign objective, and each also having a Campaign Manager, Graphic Designer, DM Exec and a Comms Exec aligned to the goal.  Your team will utilise the squad and additional internal resources across the wider team to deliver the customer comms through online and offline channels. 

You will bring leadership, motivation, creativity and innovation to this department.  This is all about new ideas, different ways of messaging, different ways of engaging.  It's not change for change sake, it's managing, optimising, improving and delivering results faster and then reporting on the conversion. 

As well as a solid understanding of digital and traditional channels, you will have proven copywriting ability and be able to guide your team with best practice.  You will be one of six department heads within a 110 strong marketing team.  With 14 direct reports you must have proven leadership experience.  We are not looking for someone who can simply identify problems, we are looking for someone who can find solutions, who brings a fresh approach and can position the business as innovators. 

What experience you'll need to apply

  • An in depth knowledge of online and offline marketing campaigns
  • Significant multichannel comms expertise
  • Good understanding of direct marketing strategies
  • Previous experience with some kind of Financial Services product/offering
  • Previous copywriting experience for FS across online and offline
  • An experienced leader and motivator
  • Investments and pensions experience is beneficial but not necessary
  • Having previously worked within an agile environment would be great!

What you'll get in return for your experience

The package on offer here is very competitive.  With a salary of up to £110,000, a generous bonus, share options, good pension contributions, 27 days holiday + BH, private medical, the list goes on.. You won't get many FS companies operating such a modern way of working and this is a great opportunity to be a part of a growing department.
