  • Use your influencing power to negotiate low-cost or free initiatives, rewards and relationships with partners/vendors to optimise the ROI
  • Leverage internal resources and efficiently set priorities to ensure that timely progress is made on key digital engagement implementations in the Elfie app

What you’ll need:

  • Demonstrable experience building high-impact overall regional or global strategies for digital consumer engagement, ideally in corporate consumer brand environments or a health related start-up
  • Bachelor’s degree in Business or Marketing would help you in this role, but this is not essential 
  • Previous experience managing high performing digital marketing teams, ideally in the health/scientific industry 
  • Ability to easily sift through analytics and data to find important engagement/retention trends and use the information to pivot your strategy to retain focus on the main objective
  • Demonstrable stakeholder relationship management skills. You will need to be comfortable influencing senior business executives and high level partners
