You have to love data

It’s not possible to be a marketer today without having a love affair with data. It’s through the data you have that you deliver unique customer experiences.

Big Data discussions have filled the email in-boxes or marketers for at least the past five years. Whether the data organisations use comes from the CRM, ERP, website or legacy systems, you need to understand how these data sources can help enhance modern digital marketing campaigns.

This role will require you to have an understanding of data models and how they work. This doesn’t mean you need to have an uber technical background, but you need to get excited about data and be naturally inquisitive about how data works.

This role does not have direct reports. This role is about developing you further.
