About us:
Here at c2c we take pride in being an award-winning train operator running services between Fenchurch Street and Shoeburyness, serving 26 stations in East London and South Essex. Our customers never stand still and neither do we. We anticipate, innovate and flex around our customer’s needs and it takes a great team to do this.
What you’ll do:

Almost two years ago we introduced a new CRM (Customer Relationship Management) system as part of a wider investment in our retail and customer communication capability, and so far have delivered a strong baseline of success through the CRM program that we need to continue to build on. Following the pandemic, at least 70% of c2c’s customers are lapsed. We are looking to recruit a Senior CRM Executive whose role is pivotal to stimulate lapsed users, retain customers and drive frequency of purchase. This will be done by designing and delivering a test and learn strategy to price promotions, aimed at increasing demand, revenue and loyalty to digital channels.  Through this you will make a key contribution to achieving challenging business objectives to increase sales and drive retail channel shift.

You will manage the customer life cycle in full, from acquisition through to engagement, increasing frequency of travel, and retaining customers as advocates. Central to achieving this will be your expertise in building CRM campaigns through working with the marketing team to agree copy and imagery and implementing in our CRM system. But just as important is that you bring a creative and insightful approach to the work you do.  The successful candidate will demonstrate commercial aptitude to develop our audience segmentation and increase data quality and quantity; strategic thinking to create strategies that improve customer engagement; and analytical ability to deliver customer insight both to the commercial team and the wider business.  This role is responsible for our customer data and so you will need to ensure all data is captured and managed in a compliant way.
