This could include working with their Direct Marketing team to implement and test digital optimisation, identifying conversion rate pain points, bringing in new targeting tools and techniques, etc. Ultimately, they would expect the successful candidate to take the lead in shaping how they approach problems and opportunities in digital search/paid search, including the potential for substantial evolution of the role itself.
