About Ancestry:

When you join Ancestry, you join a human-centered company where every person’s story is important. We believe that by discovering the struggles and triumphs of our past, we can foster deeper bonds and more meaningful connections among families and communities. Our talented team of scientists, engineers, genealogists, historians, and storytellers is dedicated to empowering customers around the world from all backgrounds on their journeys of personal discovery. 

With more than 30+ billion digitized global historical records, 125+ million family trees, and 22+ million people in our growing AncestryDNA database, Ancestry helps customers discover their family story and gain a new level of understanding about their lives. Passionate about dedicating your work to enriching people’s lives? You belong at Ancestry.

Sitting in the International Marketing Team and reporting into the Marketing Director, your primary role will be to ensure that marketing initiatives are delivered on schedule, within budget and in line with internal priorities and team resources. Your key stakeholders sit in the Marketing, Creative and Marketing Operations teams, as well as our external creative agencies. This is a great opportunity to work on a wide range of marketing initiatives across multiple markets.

What you will do:

  • Lead on the project management of marketing initiatives across Ancestry’s core international markets; UK, Ireland, Canada (incl. Quebec), Australia, and New Zealand.
  • Coordinate the end-to-end process for marketing initiatives from the brief through to asset delivery and post-campaign analysis.
  • Take responsibility for managing all aspects of the project lifecycle, including establishing project timelines, creating and updating project plans, monitoring project progress, communicating with team members, managing resources and time, updating key stakeholders, and identifying risks and taking measures to prevent delays.
  • Own project tracking and communications using Workfront.
  • Work across markets and with the central Marketing Operations team to help align initiatives to deliver more efficient and effective marketing programmes.
  • Act as the primary point of contact with the global programme management team. 

Who are you:

  • Experienced in project management, ideally in a marketing environment
  • A brilliant communicator
  • Confident in managing stakeholders across multiple geographies
  • Experience using Workfront is desirable but not essential
  • Smart, curious and happy to live in the detail

This is a full time, permanent role with full benefits, including 25 days paid time off, annual bonus, stock and health insurance. Occasional attendance in our London office would be expected, but our working location policy is fully flexible.
