Reporting to the Brand Marketing Manager, you will be responsible for end-to-end execution of Betfair's brand marketing campaigns in Latin America.

With an initial focus on Brazil, Mexico and Peru, you will work across the full channel mix to drive brand awareness growth in these exiting emerging markets for the Betfair business. Channels include, but will not be limited to, TV, Radio, Display, Video-on Demand and Social Media, and as such the role requires someone who is extremely well organised and comfortable managing multiple workstreams at pace.

Besides ensuring best in class campaign execution, the role also involves central coordination of several teams around the business, and the successful applicant will therefore require strong stakeholder management skills. Engaging with Commercial, Digital, Creative, CRM, Legal, and Social Media teams on a daily basis, you will concatenate inputs from around the business to deliver high impact campaigns that achieve cut-through in our fastest growing markets.

In addition, you will play a key role in expanding Betfair's footprint in the LatAm region, delivering our go-to-market brand strategy for new market entries such as Colombia.

The role requires a highly motivated individual with a willingness to learn, understand Betfair's brand marketing channels in depth, and deliver flawless execution against campaign plans at pace.

 

What you'll be doing:

  • Sourcing creative assets for use through-the-line in our marketing campaigns.
  • Working with external media agencies to ensure campaign plans are briefed, delivered and executed on time, then optimised on an ongoing basis.
  • Monitoring competitor activity across LatAm to keep the wider team up-to-date with new developments in advertising and digital marketing activity.
  • Working with our Brand Strategy team to ensure our messaging is fully optimised in all customer touchpoints.
  • Supporting our Sponsorship and Social teams with Brazil content plans.
  • Evaluating performance on a monthly basis and making recommendations for ongoing campaign optimisation.
  • Managing internal finance processes to ensure external suppliers are paid on time.
  • Becoming the go-to expert on the Copa Libertadores and Copa Sudamericana, the tournaments we sponsor in Latin America, to optimise promotion and messaging planning.

 

What We're Looking For..

  • Commercial acumen and a will to deliver projects that impact brand metrics.
  • Experience in a fast-moving ecommerce environment.
  • Strong Excel & PowerPoint skills.
  • Fluency in English and either Spanish or Portuguese is essential.
  • Educated to degree level.
