The role

We’re looking for a Head of CRM to strengthen the Marketing leadership team, bringing our customers into sharper focus as we continue to grow at pace.

  • Develop an integrated CRM strategy, focussing on opportunities to improve customer activation, retention, lifetime value and referrals.
  • Own all customer retention tactics and deliver best practice in CRM, Segmentation, Customer Insight, Loyalty and community programmes. Working closely with Product, Marketing, Engineering and Education teams to ensure consistency of messaging.
  • Partner across product and marketing to optimise the customer journey in order to increase conversion, engagement and revenue, and to reduce churn.
  • Working closely with the customer analytics team, develop a deep understanding of learner attitudes and behaviours. From this analysis, create a central audience strategy to inform activity across all channels and lifecycle stages.
  • Own the marketing technology agenda, ensuring we leverage the right tools to support dynamic, personalised customer experiences.
  • Working closely with the creative studio, ensure the team has ongoing MVT with the aim to improve engagement rates and performance.
  • Be the customer champion within the business, sharing insights, best practise and results.

The candidate

  • +7 years in CRM, with 3+years in a leadership position with demonstrated success.
  • Experience working within a global and mobile first business is vital.
  • Experience working for a technology-focussed business, and adept at partnering with product developers, engineers and analysts.
  • Expert and hands-on experience of ESPs/ CRM platforms, customer data migration and how tech stacks come together across the digital disciplines.
  • In-depth understanding of customer journeys and how best to optimise and improve.
  • You will be naturally curious, with the ability to ask the right questions in order to optimise the customer experience.
  • A blend of analyst and leader, you will enjoy reviewing insights as much as inspiring your team to be creative and deliver growth.
  • A second language, or experience of learning languages, would be an advantage.

At Busuu we want to ensure that you have access to some great benefits:

  • Our centrally located offices are well-equipped with free breakfast, plenty of snacks, fresh fruit, and free dinner of your choice if you need to stay late.
  • Busuu offers a great Private Health Insurance scheme.
  • There is a personal training budget just for you, so you can learn more in your field to ensure our employees can continuously grow and progress in their careers.
  • We like to support our teams with their work-life balance so we offer flexible working hours and a hybrid model of working.
  • We offer enhanced maternity and paternity leave.
  • Staying connected as a team is very important to us, so we have lots of social activities for you to join such a team lunches, Friday socials, quarterly team, and company events.
