Role - Digital Planning Director
Salary - up to £50,000
Are you working in a digital agency or media business leading client relationships and creating multi channel digital strategy?
Ever fancied a change from working with large, slow moving, big name brands and and wanted to move to a business where you will have more impact, build direct relationships with the CEO’s and be fully invested in building their digital approach from the ground up?
We are working with an established Digital Agency who have entered a period of hyper growth as an initiative they launched a couple of years ago to provide venture backed, E-commerce & subscription based businesses with an end-to-end digital offering providing them the much needed guidance and expertise to excel in the current market. This shift in the agency's clientele has been an enormous success for them; has gained them a ton of new business wins and it now accounts for a serious share of their overall revenue.
The area of E-commerce and subscription based businesses has been a sector of massive growth over the last few years with brands like Hello Fresh, Gousto, Dollar Shave Club, Lootcrate and Beer52 becoming household names! You will have the opportunity to be embedded into businesses like these, working closely with their CEOs and MDs to fully understand their goals and play a central role on their strategic business plans.
