Communications Executive - Email Campaigns and Direct Mail - Partner Marketing
Based in Collindale
Our client is a growing FTSE 250 Company with over 600,000 customers, but at heart they’re still seen as an entrepreneurial challenger with a strong family feel! They are the UK’s only fully integrated provider of a wide range of competitively priced essential services, across insurance, energy and phones to name a few.
They’ve grown purely by ‘word of mouth’ recommendation and their audience is around 40,000 Independent Distributors across the country recommending our services.
They are a little bit different than your average utility provider and work a lot with partners generating new creative ideas to both retain and reward their network.
They pride themselves on a family feel and rewarding their partners.
They have a high retention of staff as it is considered a collaborative and creative environment to work in and we have placed several people down there that are very happy with the role, company and their colleagues. There is also scope to move in the company and grow.
