GoCardless is creating the world’s first network for bank to bank payments, to rival credit and debit cards. With our powerful API and our global network of software partners, we’re on a mission to break down barriers, so businesses can take recurring payments easily, anywhere, in any currency.
GoCardless is stepping up its marketing in 2019 and taking our proposition around the world. At the heart of our marketing strategy is an educational content programme that informs and engages our audiences. We’re looking for an outstanding Head of Content to lead our Content, Editorial and Social Media functions, to drive customer acquisition, build our brand and make us the leading advice platform globally for businesses taking recurring payments.
Reporting into the CMO, the Head of Content will lead our global content strategy, driving customer acquisition, activation and retention through content, and building brand awareness.
You’ll take overall responsibility for our content and organic social roadmap, driving traffic to our website, delivering content leads and supporting our marketing and PR campaigns with great content.
You’ll ensure the quality and consistency of our content across different channels including online and events, and you’ll oversee the development of our organic social channels to drive conversation and engagement.
Metric-driven, you’ll regularly monitor and report on budget and performance to the CMO, Marketing team and wider business stakeholders.
As team lead, you’ll ensure that our Content and Social team has the right resources and support to succeed, while building the team in line with our growth ambitions.
As a member of our Marketing leadership team, you’ll make sure the Content and Social team is working in sync with other teams including Comms, Demand Generation, Product Marketing, Partnerships, Creative Design and Talent, and you’ll represent the function in cross-business projects.
We welcome diversity of professional backgrounds– if you're unsure, do apply.
In your application, please submit one relevant example of your written work in addition to your CV and cover letter.
We’re building the payments network for the internet. Join us.
Since GoCardless was set up in 2011, we have been focussed on simplifying Direct Debit and opening up access to companies who could never previously use it. We already process over $1bn each year for thousands of businesses, and we are growing fast.
We work with a huge range of organisations: small gyms and scout groups use us to reduce admin; fast growing companies like Funding Circle use us to power their growth; established institutions like the Guardian use us to dramatically reduce failure rates.
Our ambitions go beyond this: we want to break down barriers so that businesses can quickly and simply start taking payments from anyone, anywhere in the world.
Over the last year, we’ve expanded our offering for larger organisations, like the Guardian and the UK Government. We’ve also added European Direct Debit schemes, so multinational companies can collect payments across Europe with ease. We’ve recently launched in France and Germany, and in the coming year we’ll continue our global expansion, as we create a global network for recurring payments.
We’re London-based, and backed by some of the world’s leading investors including Balderton Capital, Accel Partners, Passion Capital and Y Combinator.
