Innovation Manager

Birmingham, England, United Kingdom · Commercial


About the team

383’s Innovation Programme team helps big companies to define, design and operationalise both internal and external innovation initiatives. This helps them to have a more repeatable long term approach to innovation coming from inside the business but might also help them to get closer to useful and potentially disruptive new start ups outside of their business. This might result in a new business model to take to market, a new piece of start up technology to pilot or an improvement in customer experience.

About the role

383’s Innovation Manager will be responsible for working with our Business Development, Client Services and Strategy teams to design proprietary programmes for our clients, helping them to operationalise and ensure that they are producing the breakthroughs our clients expect in terms of new revenue opportunities, improvements in CX or start-up partnerships.

You’ll initially work to develop the value proposition for the Innovation programme, and use this to successfully onboard new clients into the programme. In the medium term you’ll be a billable resource leading the programmes inside 383 with their relevant agency pods. This is an opportunity to create an entire product from scratch, mapping out how the Innovation programme will work, communicating with clients, onboarding start-ups, collaborating with software partners to implement innovation management systems, executing workshops with the Strategy team, and reporting frequently to the Commercial Director on the progress of programmes across our clients.

On a day-to-day basis, you will be responsible for:
