What you’ll do

  • End-to-end ownership of our relationship with the partner; from day to day approvals and monitoring of marketing, to performance tracking and development of future growth plans.

  • Optimising all aspects of the partners performance with the primary aim of delivering growth for Capital One.

  • Proactively seeking growth opportunities and new capabilities alongside the partner, and own the delivery of these into the market.

  • Understanding every aspect of the partnership - From up to date trading performance by pulling and analysing large data, through to the branding of communications - You will be the main point of contact both internally and externally, so you’ll be a passionate brand ambassador for the partnership.

What we’re looking for

  • Experience of managing relationships and driving commercial decisions – particularly utilising data to make decisions.

  • Ability to work autonomously and with a proactive mindset, and willing to pursue and explore different routes to solving problems.

  • Strong analytical skills - Whether demonstrated through academic or professional experience, you’ll be at ease with numbers and enjoy solving problems that present numerically. SQL skills would be an advantage, however this is coachable.

  • A great communicator, able to effectively convey messages to our marketing partners and senior stakeholders within the business.

  • Comfortable working collaboratively with associates from across the business; from Legal & Compliance, Service Management, Technology and Operations.

  • Ability to prioritise  across multiple projects and deliverables  in a very high pace environment.

  • Experience working within a regulated environment would be desirable.

We are committed to creating a level playing field and seek to create teams that are representative of our customers and the communities we serve.  We’d love to hear from you if you identify with a typically under-represented group in our industry and are particularly keen to hear from women, the LGBTQ+ community and ethnic minority candidates.
