Senior Account Management

At Optima, we work with big brands to connect their data from multiple sources which can then be used to provide targeted direct, email and digital marketing activities.

We have a friendly team of just over 20 employees, a great office (overlooking Haymarket Station), and offer a competitive salary, benefits and lots of social activities.

Your role within the company will be to provide hands on support for our clients’ email marketing activity.  Your time will be split between liaising with clients to ensure all campaign requirements are met and supporting the internal production of email campaigns from briefing to coding, send and reporting.

You will work within the Client Services team and be expected to liaise with our technical data engineers on a day to day basis to meet client data selection requirements.

This is a great opportunity to work with big brand clients in a growing company and develop digital marketing skills to take you through your career.  

You should have:

  • At least a 2.1 honours degree in any subject
  • A strong interest in marketing, particularly email marketing
  • An awareness of customer data usage, including best practice and targeted marketing practices
  • Basic HTML coding knowledge, or at least an interest or some experience with coding
  • Exceptional organisational skills and a good attention to detail – especially when working under deadline pressures
  • Experience of programs like Adobe Dreamweaver, Fireworks or Photoshop would be helpful
  • Good day to day usage of Microsoft Office tools
  • Customer facing experience of any kind
  • Previous experience working with ESPs is also desirable.
  • Competence in maths for basic reporting or billing purposes

Equally important is your ability to fit into our small, close-knit team. The work we do is challenging but very rewarding, and we are looking for a 'can do' attitude to complement our existing team.

Applicants must be fluent in English to a native level and eligible to work in the UK.

Technical Consultant

We are currently looking for Graduate Trainees to join our highly skilled team. You will work with industry-standard technologies and develop sought-after database skills.

We're looking for people with at least a second class honours degree in a science-based subject and a strong technical background. Your degree will have heavily featured the use of programming and you will be proficient in at least one programming language such as C#, Java, Visual Basic or SQL. A strong mathematics background as part of your degree would also be preferable.

Equally important is your ability to fit into our small, close-knit team. Ideally, you will be proficient at pool. Not to the extent that we can’t ever beat you but enough to give us a challenge… If pool is not your thing, there's plenty going on in the office at all times with chat ranging from shoes to star wars!

As a graduate technical consultant, you will be exposed to industry-standard technologies and develop highly sought-after database skills. We are not hierarchical so you will have the opportunity to gain experience across a range of clients and really interesting projects. We have a friendly team, a great office (overlooking Haymarket Station), and offer a competitive salary, bonus and training.

Working for Optima will give the chance to work with some big names, like Matalan, Flybe and Lloyds, with all of the benefits of a smaller company - ideal for graduates looking for the best of both worlds.

Established in 2005 Optima Connect is one of the UK's leading marketing service providers. We are specialists in data strategy, marketing database development, customer journey planning, predictive modelling, marketing campaign planning, performance reporting and data visualisation. We work across multiple sectors with big brand clients and almost 30 million customer records under management. We are a Microsoft Certified Gold Partner in Cloud Competency.
