  • Provide regular reporting, analysis and insight to highlight the story behind our actual and forecasted performance, working closely and collaborating with a wide range of relevant stakeholders.
  • Work closely with the rest of the marketing department, acting as the key link between Performance Marketing and the Buying & Merchandising/Digital Trading teams to make sure campaigns are planned, executed and optimised, as well as sharing your insight on opportunities for growth.

  • Being results-orientated will really help you in this role and you’ll have experience of managing a broad set of requirements. You’ll need to be confident and comfortable in making quick decisions.
  • Strong multi-tasking abilities will work in your favour and you’ll know how to prioritise, delegate and work to tight deadlines in a calm and effective way.
