You’ll be present and active in client briefings, strategy sessions and have a clear point of view on how to address a project’s objectives. You will run projects with a high degree of autonomy, so managing upwards to the Business Lead and good internal communications are a must. You will run client meetings, facilitate pulling in expertise for jobs, and be a key growth driver for the account, looking for new opportunities to expand both the Visa and Digitas business.

Responsibilities:

  • Supporting the EU Data Lead in pushing Visa to achieve their objective of being ‘the most data-driven marketing organisation in Europe’
  • Building relationships with Publicis Data Leads across Europe, facilitating their requests for support and referring to Data team expertise when necessary

  • Running UK projects as a PO1 team, identifying the best solutions for the client needs
  • Developing strong internal/inter-agency relationships to ensure that work is delivered efficiently and to the highest possible standard
  •  Building trust with clients through open, proactive and value-add relationships.
  • Developing strategic understanding of the client’s and our business to learn how to build a strategic partnership with clients
  • Financial management of all projects to ensure suppliers are paid and clients pay fees on time

 Requirements:

  •  You will be a self starter from a data, intelligence and research based background, and will accurately  manage projects with minimal supervision from start to finish. You will think outside the box and anticipate issues before they occur.
  • Your proactivity and ability to think commercially will drive projects forward, whilst also enabling you to spot opportunities.
  • You will relish in the opportunity to build relationships and connections as this role is very communications focused both across our teams and with the client. You will take pride in your enthusiastic and self starting nature and will be the go-to for client calls, advice and support.
  • Previous data and analytics experience within an agency environment is a must.
