In a nutshell

At Virgin Atlantic, we’re just as passionate as we’ve always been about becoming the most loved travel company. It’s been an uncertain time for us, for everyone. There’s been ups and downs, some successes, and some sadness. One thing we know for sure – this period has shown that when we combine our brand with the power of amazing people, we make something truly magical.

Virgin Atlantic is still proudly flying, creating the same fabulous flight experience we’re famous for, and we’re busily laying the foundations for a profitable future. We know that the right people are key to creating success – so we’re looking for someone brilliant to join our team and help us achieve our vision. Perhaps that’s you? We’d love to find out.

As our Customer Relationship Management (CRM) Executive, you will be accountable for supporting the CRM Managers in defining the roadmap for below-the-line communications (for both B2C prospects and customers); developing campaigns to grow Customer Lifetime Value and the management of the end-to-end omni channel customer communications (planning, build, testing and deployment of direct communications.)
In addition, you will also play a key role in the delivery of the CRM Transformation plan – being involved in multiple projects across the 5 year business plan.

This role will work across the full customer journey (to both B2C prospects and customers) from driving conversion, through to the Pre-Departure journey. This will be across both the Virgin Atlantic and Virgin Atlantic Holidays brands.
To achieve this, you will work closely with multiple teams – for example, Marketing, Loyalty, Travel Product and Commercial, to ensure CRM campaigns are integrated effectively with the wider brand and Loyalty strategy.
