Your new company
We are Hays, the world's leading recruitment experts. Last year we placed 81,100 people into permanent jobs and 254,000 people into temporary roles.

Every day, across our business, we benefit society by helping people succeed and enabling organisations to thrive - creating opportunities and improving lives.

We are recruiting for an exciting opportunity to join our UKI Marketing Team in the newly-created role of Head of Data. The role will be based in Central London with flexibility & hybrid home-working available.

Your new role
As Head of Marketing Data, you report directly to the UKI Head of Marketing and will be responsible for providing the lead on data analysis, data management and project management for all data-related projects in support of commercial business objectives. This will include all customer acquisition, retention, renewal & loyalty programmes. You will deliver a data strategy and be comfortable staying "hands-on" with the data to manipulate, investigate and report on data to support the wider Marketing function in creating programmes for improved customer engagement.

As part of the wider Marketing function, your job is pivotal in creating and enhancing marketing performance reports; building dashboards and tracking customer behaviours to advise on appropriate Marketing activities. You will be working with multiple data sources across a wide data architecture not just to gather and analyse data, but to create actionable insights that deliver commercial value. This role is not to manually report data, but to succinctly analyse and interpret it and be able to drive commercial growth, automated processes and identify business opportunities through data-driven insights. This role is a newly created position to ensure the continued success of customer programmes across the business.

What you'll need to succeed
You will be an experienced Marketing Data Analyst/Insights Manager/Data Scientist with a strong interest and experience in Digital Marketing. You'll be confident in investigating & manipulating data, and can prepare insights & reports in a clear and concise way that translates data into actionable insights. You will have a proven track record of using Microsoft PowerBI for reporting and visualization purposes, including some experience in DAX and PowerQuery/M, and have familiarity with writing SQL queries. Experience with Marketing CRM or Automation tools (Salesforce, Marketo, Hubspot) as well as web analytics tools is valuable, as is any experience with data modelling tools and experience in identifying customer behavioural patterns and commercial opportunities through predictive analysis.

What you'll get in return
You will receive a salary of up to £80,000 plus package including bonus. You will have the opportunity to head up a growing data & analytics function as the business expands its data maturity, working alongside fantastic colleagues in the Marketing department to inform future marketing success based on tangible data & insights.
