About this job
My client is one of the true success stories in the new wave of technology-led financial services businesses. In the main, they provide money transfer and foreign exchange solutions with a digital edge – which they offer both B2C and B2B (80% B2B). Over the past 15 years, they’ve grown to circa 1,000 FTE and have offices all over the world. The company is now seeking to appoint a marketing director to own strategy and delivery for EMEA, reporting in to the general manager of the region.
The business has recently been through a very positive, complimentary acquisition, which has given them access to some unbelievable technology – and they’ve spent the last 6 months taking their proposition from great to world class. As a result, there’s now an exciting opportunity for an experienced marketer to take that proposition to market. This role has direct line management responsibility for a talented team of 8 people, with further indirect reports in a global function.
In order to be considered for this role, you will need to demonstrate a track record in leadership in a financial services / regulated institution. You’ll be a TTL marketer, but particularly strong in digital, with quantifiable justification of the value you’ve brought to the businesses you’ve worked in. It would certainly be helpful if you’ve worked for a startup, scaleup, or technology led business. Lastly, you’ll need the credibility and confidence to report in to a GM (who’s very pro-marketing, but not a marketer by trade).
This is a fantastic opportunity for the right person and we’re delighted to take it to market on behalf of our client. If you decide to apply, please note that applications will be reviewed from 2nd January 2020 onwards.
