Vertu Motors is the fifth largest automotive retailer in the UK with a network of 155 sales outlets across the UK. Our dealerships operate predominantly under the Bristol Street Motors, Vertu and Macklin Motors brand names.
We are now recruiting for a Senior CRM Executive to join our team! We are looking for an experienced CRM marketing executive to play a leading role in the continuing success of Bristol Street Motors , Macklin Motors (in Scotland), and Motability across the Group. You'll be responsible for the day to day communications strategy, in particular using email marketing, SMS and other channels, that delivers conquest and in-life propositions which generate enquiries for sales, service and parts.
Activity will be directed at both new customers who become known to Bristol Street Motors, Macklin Motors or Motability during the sales process (eg. responding to activity on the website), lapsed customers, and existing customers who we want to keep engaged so they come back for service, accessories and their next car.
Your main customers internally will be the Bristol Street Motors', Macklin Motors' and Motability Retail Marketing teams for sales and service, who take overall responsibility for all marketing activity that supports their retail brand and individual manufacturers.
As part of the CRM team, you will be expected to stay on top of the latest developments in relevant technology and data, and be an ambassador for the capabilities of CRM around the business.
You'll be confident with numbers, data analysis and CRM technology (eg. Central Data Platforms, Marketing Automation), but also have an eye for effective creativity that is in line with the Bristol Street Motors, Macklin Motors and Motability brands and which customers engage with. This will come from a curiosity about what makes customers tick, and an ability to turn this into actionable insight.
Excellent working with others skills are paramount to ensure the retail teams are inspired by and onboard with best practice, and you'll cement relationships with a sleeves-rolled-up attitude to owning and delivering results.
You'll be joining one of the UK's leading dealership marketing teams, which covers Bristol Street Motors and Macklin Motors, as well as Vertu Motors, and most major manufacturer brands.
