About Team O2, Havas UK:


Team Telefónica, Havas UK is Havas Group’s bespoke agency team for Telefónica. Havas started working with Telefónica in 2015 in a strategic alliance to be Telefónica’s partner for transformation – an ambitious program to make Telefónica the world’s first truly digital telco.


Through data-driven and content-powered strategies, we are delivering solutions beyond media that add value to our client’s brand and helping to make them a more digital, customer-centric business. Our approach is to develop a long-term programme to drive change, embed new behaviours and deliver the bottom line business benefit, alongside day-to-day delivery of innovative and industry-defining campaigns and the always-on, data-driven marketing activities.


The Role:


This is an exciting opportunity for a bright & talented data executive to join a dynamic team working across Telefónica (O2 and Giff Gaff), assessing all their online and offline paid media.


The role is crucial in enabling Havas, and Telefónica Corporate (Spain) to understand the performance of the UK market, and media we and our competitors produce. As such, the position is situated within the analytics team, working closely with media planners and channel activation teams; this provides a great deal of exposure to the inner workings of the account.


The day to day will have you taking full ownership of Corporate reporting, these reports focus on our media investments, delivery and performance. The reports are technically challenging to produce so you will have a keen eye for detail and excellent data manipulation skills, particularly across SQL and SSIS. You will have, or be willing to learn and apply, ETL automation skills to improve the processes already in place. It’s an excellent opportunity to take ownership of a crucial element of the agency responsibilities.


You will be keeping a close eye on what our competitors are doing by using BI tools to assess our performance relative to the market; you’ll then be communicating this back into the agency to ensure that we’re planning our campaigns effectively and reacting to changes as they happen.
