Job description

Project Description

The AGS Digital Strategy underpins the future commercial success and online customer experience for all three airports. This placement will support in the delivery of the newly-formed strategy, including but not limited to the below project outputs:

Salesforce CRM – A major project in support of the AGS digital strategy, the Salesforce CRM project has been launched to consolidate all of the airport’s data sources into one central, real-time API driven CRM system.  This software (Salesforce Sales Cloud) will go on to power real-time customer segmentation and analytics, automated communications and marketing of airport products and services.  The Digital resource will support on both data logic/segmentations, and the creation of communications/user journeys to be published upon the launch of the Salescloud software.

Mobile app – The mobile app for Aberdeen Airport will provide real-time flight information, push notifications, in-airport navigation and online booking facilities to app users.  This key project benefits both the passenger experience and the airport from an operational and commercial perspective.  The Digital resource will support this project with associated tasks such as content creation, push notification user journey planning, testing, and liaison with third party integration partners.

Website CMS migration – This project links the content management systems of Aberdeen and Glasgow Airport’s websites, and provides efficiencies in functional developments – where either airport can ‘copy and paste’ code from one site to another – and upgrades the existing functionality by moving up to the next version of the CMS.  The Digital resource will be a key project team member, responsible for co-ordinating the migration of content and site assets from the old CMS to the new version. Testing and liaison with 3rd party integration partners will also be required for this project.

Digital marketing campaigns – Linked across some of the previously mentioned digital channels, the airport will be running several high-profile digital marketing campaigns in 2019 with a view to increasing awareness of the airport’s destinations and services – driving passenger numbers and online revenues.  The marketing project contains both external and airport-owned channels as well as a significant media spend.  The Digital resource will be a key member in supporting content creation for these campaigns across a variety of different channels, including internal and external liaison and reporting.

Fire Training Group website – Aberdeen International Airport owns The Fire Training Group, a business focussed on the training of primarily offshore industry workers in things like fire safety, confined space, and NEBOSH qualifications. In recent times, the business has experienced a dip in delegate numbers due to energy industry economic conditions.  To counter this, FTG have commissioned a new website to better compete within the busy online space in this sector.  The Digital resource will support the technical integration of the website, as well creating online components, imagery and other content.  Ultimately the Digital resource will project manage the go-live, including technical elements such as domain name transfer, DNS updates etc.
