  • Agency, social platform, account manager and advertising platform partnerships;
  • Inbound marketing (content, consumer & stock market PR, social media, email, events, partner-campaigns, etc).
  • Analysing daily reports of all campaigns and data (user data, listen data, sign ups, OPR/CTR, impressions and dwell data, conversion rates, churn rates etc.) and repositioning / optimising the campaigns and teams
  • Daily liaising with UK, US and Indian Marketing Managers, Global Creative Manager, Global Social Media Manager and heads of other departments.
