Customer Success Executive

emap is a progressive content, subscription & networking business. We connect influential people and organisations to a high-value network of decision-makers, data and ideas through our industry-leading business to business brands.  


In this role you will talk to some of the most important professions in the UK – nurses, building contractors and engineers and local government leaders. You will represent some incredibly well-known brands that have been providing invaluable information for hundreds of years – Nursing Times, Construction News, Local Government Chronicle, New Civil Engineering and Ground Engineer.  


The purpose of this role is to ensure that we are providing an amazing service experience and a great product for our subscription customers. As a Customer Success Executive, you will help customers that have just purchased a subscription for the first time. By ensuring new and existing customers are getting the most from their subscription you will increase the likelihood they renew their subscription. You will also identify companies that could add more staff to their subscription. You will be in regular contact (at least once a quarter) with customers making sure they are as satisfied as possible with the subscription they have bought.  


You will always be looking for ways to get our customers to regularly read our content online. You may do this through regular calls with the customer, emailing the end users with relevant content they may not have seen and showing best practice to the customer including how other customers are encouraging staff usage.  You will work closely with the marketing team, using data to look for customer champions or those that are hardly using their subscription. Over time, you will also be able to take on the responsibility of renewing selected accounts, plus looking for opportunities to increase the number of licenses a customer has purchased. 


Getting our corporate subscriptions customers to use their subscription as much as possible is incredibly important – happy customers continue as customers and can become bigger customers. Your role in delivering a successful and growing subscriptions business will play an important part in enabling us to continue to provide essential information to these professions that matter to all of us.  


You will work very closely with the subscriptions sales manager and editors to develop and execute the subscriber engagement and retention strategy.
