    Director, Customer Strategy - Global

     

    Job description

    The work of the Global Director of Customer Strategy begins approximately 2-3 months before an academy opens engaging all key stakeholders: community leaders whose support Bridge needs, motivated young adults who can be trained to become successful Academy Managers and Teachers, and potential parents whose children can be admitted to the academy once it opens – like most retailers, the first 60 days that a new Bridge International Academy is open are the biggest drivers of that academy’s pupil reach, even two years later. The focus on pupil reach continues once an academy is open, working with the Global Director of Academy Operations to develop scalable, easy-to-implement communications, programmes, and events that will strengthen community leader support, community integration, parent outreach, parent affinity, and word of mouth so that the each academy maintains existing pupils and continues to grow. The look/feel of the academy is also an incredibly important customer touch point, saying more about Bridge to parents than any verbal communications can.

    • Work with the Global Director of Academy Operations to develop the academy staff recruiting programmes necessary at launch
    • Work with the Global Director of Academy Operations to develop pricing communications, promotions, and loyalty programmes that ensure timely payments from parents as well as affinity/word of mouth
    • Work with the Academic Team to flesh out the physical academy experience, particularly that inside the classrooms
    • Define global budgets and timelines across academy launch and ongoing community outreach for purposes of pupil acquisition
    • Spend time in Bridge communities developing a knowledge of the market, competitors, and trends as well as driving customer insights and critical business issues opportunities; partner with other teams throughout Bridge as needed
    What You Should Have
    • 8+ years relevant experience
    • Extensive experience in at least three of the following: human-centred design, customer strategy, innovation, retail, communications, marketing, or sales
    • Prior experience within a fast-paced, metric driven sales organization; start up experience preferred

    • Experience working in developing countries and/or with low income customers highly encouraged
    • Bachelor's degree in relevant field (anthropology, sociology, design, management), graduate degrees preferred
    • We particularly value experience in extreme growth situations.
    • Passionate about Bridge’s vision of democratizing the right for all children to succeed
    How We Work
