Amplifi, part of Dentsu Aegis Network, are currently looking Graduate to join their growing Broadcast team as Media Assistant in Manchester.
Amplifi’s goal is to deliver a demonstrable uplift in media performance across TV, Print, Digital and Radio on a global basis. Amplifi uses the opportunities presented by convergence and globalisation to deliver a value proposition that works for clients and media owners.
As a media agency our remit is to plan and buy media, we do however work with creative agencies who make the physical adverts but we don’t make any of the adverts here at Amplifi.
The role we are looking to recruit for is within the TV buying department which fits within the wider Broadcast department. While we work within a TV department we don’t make TV programmes, you’ll have to speak to ITV Studios or Endemol if you want to go down that route.
We speak to ITV, Channel 4 FIVE & Sky on a daily basis within the Broadcast team as we need to buy spots in the advertising breaks around their programmes for our clients who include JD Williams, Thomas Cook, Matalan & John West to name a few.
As a TV buyer you need to be strong numerically, love to solve a problem and don’t have any issues negotiating with people on the phone to get the best value and spots for our clients. The relationships that you forge will be key to this.
To excel in this role you need to be numerate, analytical, articulate and a strong communicator who can work in a fast paced environment, but most of all you must have a passion for TV.
