Further information

As part of FreeAgent's Communications team based in Edinburgh, you'll work with a group of digital marketing specialists who strive to produce excellent work that delivers tangible results.

Your day-to-day work:
• Plan and execute response driven email campaigns
• Copy write engaging email content
• Build HTML emails and execute delivery using our email marketing platform
• Plan user journeys to ensure all assets to support email campaigns are created
• Participate in content & email marketing brainstorming sessions
• Devise and run A/B & multi-variant tests to optimise email performance
• Proof read work to ensure accuracy
• Work with the in-house design team to create assets for emails
• Manage timelines and schedules
• Work with the senior acquisition manager to generate content for cold email campaigns
• Create and manage landing pages to support email campaigns

The successful candidate will have worked in a similar position and be keen to progress in a company with a great culture. You will:
• Have solid experience of using an email marketing tool (and we'd be delighted if it was a full marketing automation system)
• Be highly numerate – you'll be comfortable running tests, analysing the results and recommending and implementing changes based on these.
• Have experience of building and developing HTML email campaigns that generate a response (that may be improved conversion rate, reduced cart abandonment or similar)
• Be able to adapt your writing style depending on the audience and tone, conversation and content
• Have a great grasp of grammar and spelling
• Be confident in ensuring that emails meet deliverability standards and all relevant testing is undertaken
• Be confident in managing data and have experience of email and customer segmentation
• Be able to work quickly and independently
• Understand the value of taking a ‘test and learn' approach towards email marketing communications
• Have amazing attention to detail and be the kind of person who often finds themselves spotting other people's mistakes - and isn't too shy to point it out!
• Be bang up-to-date with email best practice and latest changes in technology
• Be able to work well as a team (you'll be happy to jump in and support other team members when there's a deadline looming!)

It’s not necessary but it would be a bonus if you:
• Have experience of using Eloqua
• Have experience of integrating email marketing with other marketing communications channels, primarily social media
• Have experience in mobile marketing
• Are IDM qualified
• Have a marketing or business related degree
