About Our Client

My Client is located in old market town Basingstoke which expanded rapidly during the 1960's from the London over-spill (48 miles from South West London). Basingstoke has become an important economic centre for the United Kingdom and houses the locations of UK headquarters for Major Global organisations.

My high profile FMCG client is undergoing an enterprise wide transformation to hit impressive growth targets. CRM system transformation is key to this and, as a result, Salesforce has been implemented but not yet truly leveraged.

As the Programme Manager for CRM, you will be responsible for delivering the ongoing CRM strategy and ensuring projects are executed at pace and within Governance structure.
