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.”

ABOUT THE VIRGIN HOLIDAYS ACCOUNT
The Virgin Holidays Account and Project Management team at Proximity is relatively small (4 people) and looks after all CRM work for the brand.
We began working with Virgin Holidays in 2016, supporting AMV in the “seize the holiday” brand re-launch. In the past year we’ve been busy working to redefine the organisation’s CRM strategy and deliver seasonal campaigns.
We’ve recently been awarded 3 DMAs for our work on the Virgin Holidays Pre-Departure programme and a Masters of Marketing Award and are setting ourselves up for more awards in 2018.
We’re very lucky to have a strong relationship with our clients who very much see us as an extension of their own team and always give us the opportunity to challenge them and excite them with the latest CRM techniques.
As the company’s strategic partner, we are supporting them in comms, data and martech strategy. Our work will span customer research, data analysis, comms planning and creative leadership.
The fast paced nature of the account allows the client service team to work with all Proximity disciplines from data analysis and planning / UX through to creative and design.

They require strong attention to detail, someone who is comfortable working autonomously, using their initiative and working as part of a team.

The roles are working across various accounts all of whom come with their own challenges and opportunities, offering the chance to cut your teeth at many strategic levels.
