A little about us.

We are a Creative & Media Agency that is values-driven that genuinely puts people first.

We stay ahead of the game by hiring smart thinkers and giving them back what they put in: through rapid progression, industry-leading benefits and a culture which was recently named in Campaign’s Best Places to Work 2019.

A few words from our Co-Founder Kate...

We set up the agency to create the sort of environment that myself and Amy wanted to work in; a fun and supportive environment, that you actually enjoy being in, rather than being desperate to get out of at 5pm. A place that is stimulating and fresh and non-hierarchical, where ideas are welcomed and celebrated, rather than a place where you’re expected to keep your head down.

The Performance Media Marketing Manager Role:

This role fits within the 'Audience' team of the agency, focused on delivering channel agnostic media solutions to brands to assist with overcoming brands challenges.

This role is a combination of planning and buying media primarily across search, social and display (direct & programmatic) with opportunities to explore other suitable platforms such as AV, out of home and print. You’ll be expected to manage a range of accounts, consistently going above and beyond for clients and delivering innovative digital solutions where possible.

Performance Media Marketing Manager Key Responsibilities:

+ Day to day contact and account lead for a portfolio of accounts, driving innovation and fresh thinking across the account that align with client requirements.
+ Creation of cross channel media strategies and media plans, primarily digital.
+ Define and maintain audience and data approaches, providing ongoing strategic recommendations and optimisations.
+ Owns the response to client brief, ensuring that we are able to develop approaches that align with client objectives and are able to demonstrate media expertise.
+ Campaign set up, implementation, optimisation and reporting across relevant digital channels.
+ Delivering insight led reports to clients to assist in evolving the media approach, providing strategic feedback and learnings from campaign activity.
+ Collaborating closely with media partners to align performance against client expectation and new opportunities.
+ Ability to conduct inventory research, competitive landscape analysis and opportunity analysis.
+ Contribute to new business pitches (ad hoc)

About You:

+ Comprehensive understanding of paid digital channels including search, display (direct & programmatic), and paid social. A general understanding of AV, OOH and print is desirable.
+ Experienced in managing campaigns in an agency environment from developing clear strategies and rationale, optimising for performance and developing and reporting back on insights.
+ A detailed understanding of traditional reservation buys and real time bidding.
+ Ability to confidently work with data to drive insights and recommendations
+ Strong communication skills, positive can-do attitude and ability to keep calm under pressure
+ Ability to work autonomously, using own initiative, prioritise work load and handle multiple tasks
+ Attention to detail is key.
+ Passionate about continuous improvement and optimise client’s media campaigns and approaches
+ Confident in presenting approaches and reports to clients

What we offer in return:

+ Private health insurance
+ Travel insurance
+ Company holidays
+ Quarterly professional development programme
+ Mentoring
+ 24 days holiday
+ Flexible working hours
+ Regular team get togethers and socials
+ Christmas and Summer parties.
