Your key responsibility will be a tier 1 client which operates in multiple countries. Supported by a counterpart in the Australian office, you will be responsible for hands-on delivery across SEM and Paid Social, as well as navigating the client through the digital space.

Although reporting to and working alongside our Australian colleagues, you will also be a part of our UK-based Paid Media team – a large, fun and diverse team.

  • Make commercial sense of the data and pull it all together.

  • Stay up to date with industry trends and best practices by collaborating with the team internally and attending key industry events.
  • Client communication - be in direct contact with multiple stakeholders as the trusted source of truth.
  • Manage your time and deliver with 100% accuracy.
  • Work alongside talented people on multichannel campaigns, specifically our creative and data teams
  • Responsible for proactively approaching clients with new ideas, betas and tests

Skills Required

  • Experience (preferably agency experience) in both paid search and paid social (Facebook/IG is a must, additional platforms advantageous)
  • Hands on and implementation experience is a must
  • Advanced knowledge of all biddable media networks, to piece it all together.
  • Solid strategic ability
  • Management of PPC Executives and Analysts – able to achieve quality through others
  • Advanced data and analytical skills
  • Advanced attribution knowledge
  • Advanced Analytics and tagging knowledge
  • Track record of developing, implementing and optimizing cost effective and high-performing paid search strategies.
  • Strong presentation skills and the ability to communicate complex issues in a simple manner - you are a digital translator.
  • Attention to detail is paramount.
  • Google Analytics experience
  • Be a problem solver
  • Strong time & project management skills.
  • Must love people and machines
  • Most importantly, a true passion for what you do.

Additional information

  • Working hours are flexible, however, as this role will be supporting an Australia-based client, there will be an expectation to accommodate some crossover with the Australian timezone.
  • There will also be the opportunity to collaborate with your colleagues in Australia, meaning one trip to Australia a year!
