• excellent team and interpersonal skills
• an interest in media and people’s motivations

Typical Duties

The role is fast-paced, challenging and rewarding. On a typical day you will be:
• meeting clients to understand their advertising strategy and build up a picture about their target audience
• analysing and researching the target audience’s character, behaviour, purchasing habits and how they consume media
• maintaining contacts with media owners, ensuring statistics, circulation and viewing figures are up to date
• presenting media proposals, including timings and cost breakdowns, helping clients to reach a final decision about their future advertising strategy
• obtaining the best advertising rates that fit with the agreed media strategy
• monitoring and updating clients on the effectiveness of campaigns
