Be the main point of contact for stakeholders on the briefs / tasks allocated to them; liaising directly with stakeholders to interrogate the briefs and fielding and responding to day to day enquiries to ensure the activity is delivered on time and in line with requirements.
Using their creative expertise and judgement to inspire and direct the external marketing agency to deliver powerful creative work; providing concise and informative feedback to inform the creative evolution and minimize the number of amends from first to final concept.
Driving customer satisfaction with delivery of consistent brand messaging (through look and feel and TOV) and ensuring messaging meets the defined brand expectations.
