  • Build and coach the Travel at 60 team, leveraging the skills to best fit the changing market.
  • Develop the path to purchase for consumers, working through the user journey from online to offline to understand and build out each step in the business process, in turn defining product development, lead generation and customer conversion process.  
  • Build the marketing framework for Travel at 60 products and services, leveraging content and media network and user base of Starts at 60 and Travel at 60 as a lifelong customer.
  • Constantly evaluate ROI and success of channels, managing spend and arbitrage with our performance team.
  • Manage the customer success, working to constantly improve conversion and drive lifetime customer relationships.  
  • Build a framework for measuring, analysing and reporting on commercial success.

What do you need to be successful?

The ideal person for the role has:

  • Demonstrated ability to partner with key stakeholders to build the commercial and technology platforms to drive the strategy.
