We are the guardians of our most precious asset: the Nationwide brand. We are proud that our brand strategy is rooted in our history and heritage and we don’t just want to ‘tell’ that story. We want to share it. We want to engage people and encourage them to be our advocates.

Member Contact Strategy

Within the community our team’s strategic vision is to build a thriving membership of engaged members building society, Nationwide. The more engaged members we have the more we can help them achieve their life goals both now and in the future. We are achieving this through the development of a new strategy that truly puts our members at the heart of their communication experience.

Member Contact Strategy – Performance Team

We exist to demystify results. To enable the member contact strategy team to make informed decisions that drive improved performance, effectiveness and efficiency. We do this through adhering to our Enlighten, Empower & Entertain mantra. We Enlighten – uncovering the insights that enhance the teams knowledge. We Empower – Better decisions are made as a result of our performance insight. We Entertain – Our output is a joy to consume, eagerly anticipated and memorable.

Who we're looking for

You’ll need to demonstrate the ability to:
• Lead a team to deliver actionable insight and compelling performance stories
• Analyse and interpret campaign performance to identify patterns and implications and lead your team to do so
• Collaborate closely with the planning, targeting and optimisation matrix teams to drive business decision making and change.
• Prepare detailed analysis and present this to a range of stakeholders across the business. Therefore, good communication and the ability to vary your storytelling to that audience is essential.
• Help drive the team forward and promote team working, showing how your work fits into the broader strategic picture.
• Ideally, you will have a good understanding of financial services, product and market trends and an awareness of the strategic role of customer marketing in delivering marketing plans.
• Have knowledge of customer analysis and data manipulation techniques.
• Knowledge of incremental measurement methodology, attribution and understanding cross channel impacts would be advantageous
• An advanced knowledge of Excel and PowerPoint is highly desirable
• Have an appetite to explore new and innovative approaches that provide appropriate answers to our business questions.

What you'll be doing

Your role will be to use your analytical skills to interpret the results of marketing campaigns and provide strategic recommendations around how they might be improved in the future. You’re leading a team, so as well as your own analysis skills you’ll need to be able to bring the best out of others.

You’ll have direct leadership of two senior analysts as well as working with a wider agile matrix team across data execution, evaluation, targeting analytics, optimisation and creative design.

The data and tools required to interpret performance and tell your stories will largely be provided for you and your team. The crucial part of your role will be interpreting the findings and understanding the implications for the direction of our Member Contact Strategy.

You will then need to engage with stakeholders and help to facilitate strategic business decisions, so good communication and “story telling” skills are essential.

You will be required to respond to complex business problems with accountability for meeting deadlines and making strategic recommendations with significant business implications.
