Job Description

My client has a vacancy for a Media Account Executive based in their stunning new London offices. Although the role is physically based in London, you will work with our teams around the world on global and local clients. 

The Media and Comms team is split into four pillars, client service, implementation, data and insight and strategy.

You will manage the planning, implementation and day to day management of cross-channel digital including media campaigns running on Programmatic, Paid Search and Paid Social, for a range of global clients and big brand names.

You'll need to have an excellent eye for detail and great communication skills. Your curiosity to explore client challenges means that you’ll constantly be on the lookout for better ways of doing things, to maximise value for both our clients and the business.

 It’s a busy role and you’ll need to be organised and able to switch between projects, managing your workload effectively to meet deadlines and deliver a positive client experience. You’ll develop great relationships with clients to become their key day to day contact for their biddable media campaigns.

You’ll support media account managers and liaise closely with specialists across the business to ensure projects are delivered on time, to budget and to brief. You will need to build good relationships with external contacts as well as internal teams, working well as part of a close knit team, with energy, drive and a positive attitude.

Finally, you will need the ability to think laterally, make logical decisions and be prepared to work in an environment where not all of the answers are known. Self-motivation, experience and the ability to work well with others will make you the ideal candidate.

  • Monitoring campaigns to ensure they are performing as expected.
  • Product and service enhancement
