We’re looking for an Assistant Manager to join our Brand Protection team in the Chief Customer Office. Within this team we lead the Group’s strategy for the protection of our brands and customers. We’re looking for someone who’s as passionate about that as we are – and can bring that to life for others.
Lloyds Banking Group has a unique and iconic family of brands – from household names like Lloyds Bank and the Halifax, to specialists like Scottish Widows and MBNA that serve people, business and communities across the UK. Our brand and customer strategy & planning team’s role is to manage that portfolio, deepening relationships with our customers by setting the strategies, plans and customer experiences to build and maintain the strongest performing brands in market.
The Brand Protection team leads our strategy and day-to-day management of our brand intellectual property (IP) rights to protect our customers, our brands and to help grow the value of the brand portfolio.
We play an active consultancy role to support the group in the governance of our brand assets, helping them consider the IP implications of branding and new proposition development, as well as creating and delivering guidance and training content.
This role and the immediate team of four is based in London. Embracing the ‘best of both’ that hybrid working offers, we’re open to discussing agile and flexible ways of working.
What would you get involved in?
We’re a small team with a big remit so there will be opportunities to get involved across the spectrum of activities that protect our brands as well as owning your own projects.
Right now is a fantastic time to join the team to help shape our approach and future strategy.
Day to day:
Managing third party suppliers to monitor and assess misuse of our brands.
Coordinating the clearance of new brand assets and proposition names. Briefing legal searches to assess risk and managing the registration and renewal of our portfolio of trade marks and design rights.
Managing issues, such as oppositions and cases of brand infringement, briefing suppliers and internal partners and helping to make recommendations on strategy.
Acting as a subject matter expert in brand intellectual property matters and policies from fielding day-to-day queries and managing permissions to use our brands.
Designing and managing processes, tools, record keeping and reporting to help the team triage and prioritise work.
Shaping policies, frameworks and guidelines to help guide and educate colleagues on protecting our brands
Auditing how our brands are being used or what our competitors are doing
