At our heart is the UK's largest retail financial product and fund database -- we maintain it by collecting data from across the whole market, and using our expertise and insight to analyse this data and make it comparable. From this, we create a range of products and services -- ratings, software solutions, data services, consultancy services, and publications and events -- to deliver this information in a meaningful way. We're based right here in Haddenham and we're a great place to work!

Please apply for our vacancies via our website: www.defaqto.com/careers

To work effectively within Defaqto's culture, you'll need to be collaborative, results-oriented and passionate.  You'll also need to be adaptable, resourceful and pragmatic — able to work well in an agile, responsive environment.In return, we can offer a busy and challenging role, with a high level of visibility and accountability and the opportunity to have a significant impact on the achievement of challenging growth targets. This is definitely a full time role (37.5 hours per week) but we do offer a flexible approach to when and where you work your hours so that you can balance your home life and work life effectively.Required marketing experience and skills

The successful candidate will need to have a proven track record of:

product/proposition marketing and communications within a B2B environment;

planning and delivering integrated multi-channel marketing campaigns to produce significant business results;

using email marketing for lead generation, nurturing and database growth;

working with CRM, CMS and EPS systems, plus Google Analytics.

Required industry experience and knowledge:

As the Marketing Manager for Wealth Management, Protection Insurance and Funds, you'll need to develop expert knowledge of the UK financial services industry. So, we're ideally looking for someone who already has a good understanding of what financial advisers do, how the financial advice process works and how advisers interact with product providers and fund managers. This knowledge will probably have been gained through working within the industry.
