About arena.online, Patch 🌱 and Arena Flowers 💐

arena.online is a young digital business that specialises in the delivery of flowers, plants and gifts. The company’s consumer division includes Patch Plants and Arena Flowers and, along with other brands it is in the process of developing, is focused on building best-in-class modern consumer brands and has a team to match that focus. This team’s work is a key strand of the wider business strategy with resources and great people behind it.

Patch is a modern plant shop, for modern plant people. Founded in 2016, Patch helps you discover the best plants for your space, delivers them to your door and helps you look after them. Having attracted over 500k customers with a 4.8/5 rating on Trustpilot and 300k plant fans on Instagram, we have twice been named the best plant delivery service by Good Housekeeping.

Founded in 2006, Arena Flowers is the UK’s most ethical florist, building a market-leading reputation for quality and ethics, recognised by the Ethical Company Index as number one in our industry for the last eight years in a row.

About the role

We’re looking for a hungry and passionate growth marketer to join our expanding team, working across two incredibly exciting brands as they scale over the coming years.

This is a highly data-driven and analytical role which allows you the opportunity to expand your knowledge and gain experience across multiple channels and platforms, driving incremental growth across brands that span different verticals and demographics, each with their own set of opportunities and challenges.

Day to day you will have the autonomy and flexibility to work on either brand. You could spend the morning briefing creatives and formats for Patch’s paid social campaigns and the afternoon A/B testing landing pages to improve Arena’s conversion rates.

The role will report into Jack Monaghan (Senior Digital Marketing manager at arena.online), but will work closely with the full consumer team, as well as regular contact with multiple external agencies and partners.
