You will liaise with stakeholders across a range of levels, so you'll need to be able to communicate information effectively to all involved.

- Track Record: We want to know how good you are, so we'd be really impressed with detail on your highs and lows and how you've overcome challenges to reach success.
- Passion for the Industry: You'll be an advocate for your craft and be committed to learning all there is to know about the affiliate marketing landscape and the digital marketing landscape overall. You'll enjoy reading industry content, attending events and sharing your learning with clients and colleagues alike. A good understanding of the digital marketing mix and online partnerships trends would also be a plus.
- Fantastic communications skills: As an award-winning eCommerce and Digital agency, communication is kind of our 'thing'. You're going to need it to be yours, too. You'll need to be adept at communicating across various seniority levels, both verbally and as written communication, and a confident presenter.
- People & Partner Management Skills: Affiliate Marketing is all about relationships, so you'll be great at effectively building relationships with clients, partners and publishers to ensure maximum programme success.
- Positive attitude: You don't think the word impossible exists. You constantly strive to go one better than your last campaign. You're ambitious and want to build a rewarding career at a leading agency.
- Organised: Do we really need to say this? We believe any Affiliate Marketing professional worth their salt will understand the demands and level of plate spinning required to ensure campaigns run efficiently and smoothly, on time and on budget.
