Chief Marketing Officer | London | Permanent

The CMO is part of the company's leadership team focussed on Marketing at Hutch. This role will play a fundamental role in how the company grows over the coming years, and will offer a fantastic opportunity to not only help further scale our existing live products but also influence new titles we are working on.

This is a strategic role that brings together the various pillars of Marketing but will require someone who is also able and willing to get stuck in, contribute practically, influence action and drive performance.

The CMO will be an experienced leader and shall have direct line management responsibility for Performance Marketing, Creative Services, Brand & Community Management (including social media, influencer campaigns and Corporate Communications).

The CMO shall be responsible for the overall strategies of the various teams within Marketing and will be expected to establish an effective organisation framework between the teams in order to leverage opportunities and improve ROI. As such, the CMO shall oversee and positively influence the contribution of Marketing to the company’s goals and objectives, both in terms of supporting existing “live games” and supporting the release of new titles.

Importantly, the CMO will also be required to establish close, collaborative relationships with the respective game teams to ensure the voice of Marketing (and that of our players) is heard, helping the game teams to identify the perfect brand positioning and implementing best-in-class go-to-market strategies, whilst avoiding “marketing in silo”.

The CMO will be expected to support the various teams within Marketing and establish effective reporting that helps improve understanding across the business, drives action and delivers value; detailing progress and profitability of all Marketing initiatives to each of the game teams, across the company, to the leadership team and in Board meetings.

This role combines the creative part of Marketing and the functional expertise of the channels with a data driven performance-based approach.
