We’ve recently created this Digital Marketing Director role, to accelerate the growth of the digital marketing proposition for AYKO. 

This role is a great blend of “strategic” and “hands on”. We’re looking for a true expert to own the proposition and drive it forward, to bring continued success both to our clients and to the agency.

Reporting to the board of directors and as a key member of the senior management team, this is a truly autonomous role. It offers the opportunity to take us from great to exceptional, with your innovation, ideas and approach.

Here’s the contribution this role will make to our business…

  • Creation and development of digital marketing strategies on behalf of our client base to deliver exceptional results and return on investment 
  • Continue to position AYKO externally as an expert and “go to” partner for digital marketing, leveraging on our innovation, reputation and success to deliver incremental business
  • Establishing and delivering a market growth strategy to deliver incremental revenue to AYKO and build our portfolio of clients
  • Carry out digital marketing activities on behalf of clients, to deliver against their strategy 
  • Management and development of a growing team of marketing experts, maximising their performance through great leadership and effective use of resources 
  • Member of the senior management team at AYKO, working with peers and colleagues to support the Directors in the effective running of the business and achieving its goals and aspirations
  • Providing internal and external thought leadership, to develop the AYKO team internally and continue to position us as an industry expert externally. 

To be a great match for this role, you may have previously been in an agency, in a role such as Account Director, or a Client Services Director and you’re now ready to apply your skills and experience to something new.

Here’s what we’ll be looking for on your CV…

  • Typically 5+ years of agency, or “one to many” experience in digital marketing 
  • Expert level knowledge in digital marketing, able to both curate and deliver 
  • Effective strategic account management, of large scale and high value accounts
