Marketing Associate

About Us

Urban Jungle is here to change the insurance industry for good.

We’re one of the fastest-growing businesses in the UK, and we’re taking on one of the biggest and most outdated industries in the world. Urban Jungle puts the customer at the heart of everything it does, uses the latest technology to make insurance simple, fair and affordable, and helps us give our customers much more confidence in their financial futures.

All of this has meant we’ve already been able to help over 125,000 customers get better insurance and become one of the top-rated home insurance providers in the UK, with 4.8 on Trustpilot from over 6,000 reviews. We’ve raised over £30m in funding to date to help us with our mission.

We also have a huge focus on people and our planet. We placed 1st in the TechRound100 2021, 12th in the Startups100 2021 and we won the “Best Employer Award” in the UK FinTech Awards 2021. More recently in 2022, we placed 5th in Tempo's Super Start Ups Awards and achieved B Corp certification.

And the best bit? This is just the beginning.

About The Role

We’re looking for an aspiring marketer to join the performance arm of our Marketing team at Urban Jungle.

As Marketing Associate, you’ll support our acquisition strategy through our digital channels and affiliate partners. You'll have the opportunity to flex both your creative and analytical muscles as you manage campaigns and external relationships, briefing creative, defining tests and analysing results.

Alongside this, you’ll have the opportunity to get stuck into exciting cross-functional projects that continue to push the business forward.

Working closely alongside our Marketing and Commercial teams, you’ll have a huge impact on how we do things at Urban Jungle.

In this role, you will report to our Senior Marketing Associate, Conor Beale.

Here’s what you’ll get up to:

  • Manage existing and future performance marketing channels according to company growth targets.
  • Analyse and report on performance data; sharing your findings with the wider business.
  • Make recommendations to drive improvements to our core metrics
  • Plan and run tests to rapidly iterate our activity, including writing copy and creating landing pages
  • Work with both our existing and new affiliate partners to optimise channel performance
  • Collaborate with our Product, Engineering and Operations teams to ensure we are executing at a high level and delivering an exceptional customer experience
  • Roll your sleeves up and get involved wherever you are needed!

You've read this far! Here's what we’re looking for from you:

  • A knack for numbers and comfortable analysing and reporting on large data sets
  • A natural problem-solver with a “test and learn” mentality. There are always new approaches to try!
  • A strong communicator with the ability to communicate key insights to a variety of stakeholders across the business.
  • A level of attention to detail that will put us all to shame! You’ll easily be able to spot any anomalies in the data.

These requirements are a guide as to what we’re looking for, but if you don’t have all of the skills listed above, that’s okay! Please don’t let that hold you back from applying if the role excites you.
