The principal elements of the role will be to lead a small team (two) of executives in pursuit of performance excellence on one of the tier one clients. You will be responsible for campaign implementation, analysis, optimisation, delivery and evaluation across paid search, shopping, app, and potentially AMS/Criteo, as required. You will also need to support and take an active, leading role on strategy for this client too.
There will be a heavy client facing element to this role, as you’ll be required to attend weekly calls/meetings and lead on larger monthly and quarterly meetings, with the support of your line manager. As such, it’s essential you feel comfortable with clients, have strong communication skills, as well as a proactive attitude and a real hunger for success.
You will also need to support your line manager on new business and PR opportunities, as and when these come in. This will take the form of research, analysis, assisting in strategy and narrative etc., and helping to push the performance name more widely.
