Sunday Times #1 best company

Digital Marketing Executive

Technology. Award-winning customer service. Bleeding-edge data ability.

Simply Business is a new type of insurance company, using all of the above to create the best possible insurance experience for small businesses and self-employed people.

We love working here, and have even taken the number one spot in the Sunday Times Best Company To Work For 2015 and 16 lists; we’ve stopped entering now to focus on a few bigger projects, but you get the idea. It’s a great place to work.

There are currently over 400,000 active Simply Business insurance policies in the UK alone. And we have offices in London, Northampton and Boston, USA.

Talking of offices, ours are bright, airy and geared up for really smart working. We’re flexible, with plenty of remote workers coming in and out, and we believe work and life should be hand in hand, rather than a juggling act. So no need to worry about school pick-ups, or a horrible commute.

Our people are our most important asset, so we focus on building a working life that helps us thrive, not stick. Join us and you’ll be part of our journey to creating something even better, for our customers and ourselves.

The role

We’re looking for a Digital Marketing Executive to join us in our London office. Help us deliver targets across our PPC & Display channels to contribute to meeting Simply Business’ financial goals by learning to deliver cutting edge digital campaigns.

As a Digital Marketing Executive you will:

  • support the team with the creation, optimisation and reporting for PPC & display campaigns as directed by the Head of PPC & Programmatic; together you will be responsible for delivering customer-focused, profitable multi-category campaigns to agreed targets
  • support the Head of PPC & Programmatic on devising and implementing campaign strategy and be responsible for daily and monthly expenditure being in line with budget targets
  • learn how to use data and bid management effectively to optimise and maximise performance
  • work with our cutting edge Data team to learn how to segment and analyse data on the most granular levels as well as perform all types of tests

Responsibilities include:

  • creating and testing both text and display ads, alongside the editorial, design and compliance teams
  • creating, editing and testing landing pages, liaising with the relevant teams such as editorial, design & UX
  • working with the product team to fully understand the products, identify new opportunities and improvements, and implement changes accordingly
  • taking responsibility for daily, weekly, monthly or ad hoc PPC & Display reporting to evaluate channel performance to feed into overall marketing strategy
  • using a variety of proprietorial and third party tools to compile and draw insight from company-specific, sector-specific and generic industry data, in order to better understand user trends and behaviour and add context to the performance of the account

What we are looking for:

  • advanced excel knowledge
  • someone analytical - you like analysing data to drive performance improvements and be confident manipulating complex spreadsheets
  • flexible and tenacious with a focus on accuracy and delivery
  • an upbeat personality with the ability to drive yourself and take initiative
  • a desire to challenge the status quo

What are the benefits?

There’s all the serious (but important) stuff we call ‘core benefits’. On top of that, you can pick and choose from the more exciting options we offer – whether it’s a full gym membership or gym subsidy, comprehensive private health cover, extra holiday, or a National Trust pass.

The ‘core’ stuff

Some of these will kick in once you’re confirmed in post, but here’s the summary:

  • a salary that reflects your experience, our pay policy and the market we’re in from your first day, generous annual leave
  • life assurance (financial cover for your family, should the worst happen)
  • a cash plan to reimburse your everyday medical expenses
  • an extra day off if you get married or move house
  • an automatic enrolment pension (employer-matched at 5%)

The fun stuff

Passed probation? Time to pick and mix from things like:

  • a full gym membership
  • private medical insurance
  • extra days annual leave
  • shopping vouchers
  • dental insurance
  • travel insurance

But there’s so much more to Simply Business than insurance and memberships. We also commit to flexible working options, smart working (our offices are kitted out for you to work when and how you choose), cycle to work, eye test vouchers and season ticket loan schemes, and we have a handy online form to put in any training or conference requests.

Best of all, though, are the groups, clubs, and adventures that come with the Simply Business territory. Forget a simple Give As You Earn scheme (although we’ve got that too) – we trek the Sahara for charity, take you on weekends away, throw epic summer parties, and meet up for book groups, public speaking coaching, yoga, cheeky manicures, beer brewing, and lots, lots more.
