Should your next move be to Proximity?
We’re 270 plus people who believe in the power of data to uncover behaviour changing insights and elevating these nuggets with head-turning, jaw-dropping creative work. We forge long term customer relationships on behalf of some of the world’s biggest brands. That’s why we get up in the morning.
We love winning awards, like a Cannes Lion and a DMA Grand Prix in 2015. We love getting bigger and better every year. We love winning Agency of the Year. We love being brave. We love parties. We love helping each other – this is an agency with a culture of mutual support rather than big egos. We love the meatball hotbox at Leons, the cup winning softball team, our 5-aside footie and netball squads. We love the chocolate run and drinks trolley. And the study support. And the free cinema and Tate tickets.
And the view from the 7th floor balcony. And…
Not our words, but spoken by Jos – one of our Account Managers. She goes on, “Prox has all the capabilities of a big agency, but with a small agency feel.”

Senior Account Manager
The position will report directly into an Account Director. The account team also includes a Project Director and BAD.
In 2016 we developed the end to end customer experience journey map for Specsavers, giving us a road map to evolve Specsavers communications across all channels, in order to improve conversion, engage/educate customers and ultimately retain more customers through a valued Specsavers experience.
The main focus will be on the delivery of projects both creative and strategic that we identified last year. The first of these work packages will look at how we optimize the current and very successful ‘Recall’ programme that Specsavers already have in place.
We need someone to support the delivery of these work packages alongside the AD. This will involve working with multiple departments but very closely with the UX and data teams. We have undertaken a wealth of research into Specsavers customers in 2016 and now we’re able to use this evidence to inform our strategy and creative work as we develop out different programmes for Specsavers.
We would like a collaborative, enthusiastic and pragmatic Senior Account Manager. They need to be friendly and personable with excellent project management skills but we also need someone who is comfortable working with multiple stakeholders, bringing people together and keeping the wider team informed.
The Specsavers work will be multi-channel so we need someone who has experience with both print and digital projects, with an understanding of what is and isn’t possible, industry best practices and experience of working with UX teams.
The position reports to the Data Strategy Partner, who is responsible for a team of six data consultants who between them work on the majority of the agency accounts.
The wider Proximity Data Team is a community of 30 data professionals who love to stretch themselves and learn from each other. Two years ago, when Proximity moved to the new lively Bankside location, we physically put data at the heart of the agency.
Our mission is to develop innovative data strategies, translating these into communication plans that change the behaviour of our target audiences. We work collaboratively and creatively with colleagues in Planning and UX. This approach has led to significant pitch wins in the last couple of years, the latest being Virgin Atlantic, where we used data-driven insight and storytelling to demonstrate how the brand can achieve a step change in customer management.
In the last two years we have won nine new data accounts and expanded the team by 25%. Meanwhile we have delivered award-winning data strategies for several of our clients, winning Silver at the DMAs for TVL, the Economist and MoneySuperMarket, Gold at the Data Strategy Awards for P&G, were finalists at the Data Storytelling Awards for TVL and were finalists at the Data IQ Awards in Innovation through Data for our Content Scoring tool.
This role will suit a data director with several years of experience, preferably in fmcg, who is seeking new and exciting challenges. We’re looking for a confident, effective, personable candidate who can own and deliver innovative strategies for our clients and who is able to build strong internal and external relationships at all levels
Data rules the world at Proximity! And we’re now hiring. Our immediate need is for a new Data Planner to join us. This is an incredibly important role for an agency where our data capability is our point of difference.
You will be working in an exciting, dynamic and fast paced Data Team where the scope and scale of data assignments is extremely broad. Our clients are all different; some have a more traditional approach to data management and data strategy development, whereas on our purely digital accounts we are working with a wide variety of digital data sources to create segmentation models; we use a range of web analytics tools, we also work on tag management, SEO optimisation and Adwords.
We are looking for two new Planners to come and join the growing and evolving planning team here at Proximity. It is an exciting time to join the team, as we look to establish the new order of strategic thinking, moving outside of the traditional approach to direct response and CRM planning and into the more complex world of customer experience – and the nuances this brings.
We have two, extremely tasty roles on offer – both with their own challenges – but both that offer an opportunity to cut your teeth in a strategic role, develop and hone your skills and prove that you have what it takes to make a genuine difference to the way three household names manages the relationship they have with their customers.
