Full Time


This is a pretty unique opportunity as you have the chance to join a rapidly growing boutique media agency. The company was acquired last year by a larger media group and in its first year has doubled billing targets. The agency has a strong client list and big plans for the rest of this year beyond. Due to growth it is now looking to hire an ambitious, entrepreneurial Media Manager to work closely with the MD in running a number of its biggest and most important clients.

The agency is looking for someone who is fiercely ambitious and someone who wants to accelerate their career. You will have bags of autonomy and play a key role in further growing the agency. Your role in the company will be pivotal and wide ranging. With support when required you will run a number of the agency's largest clients. Your role will cover all elements of the media agency mix. You will develop fully integrated media strategies for your clients and play a fundamental role in planning and buying your campaigns. You will also have loads of client exposure and have the opportunity to develop into a highly skilled client leader.

Internally your role will be to manage your junior staff members and play a key role in developing them. You will also support senior management in new business pitches and bringing on more clients. You'll be working across all media channels, developing fully integrated media campaigns while developing very close relationships with leading media owners.

This isn't a typical media agency opportunity. Unlike big global networked agencies you won't be pigeon holed into one role. You will gain exposure to all areas of the business and have lots of variety in your day to day work. The agency has a great working environment and offers an above average bonus.

This role would suit someone who wants to accelerate their career quickly and play a major part in growing an agency and becoming a leading figure within the company.

My client is a fantastic media planning & buying agency. It was established 5 years ago but was acquired last year by a larger media holding company. The agency has great financial backing and has very aggressive growth plans for the next five years. It doubled its revenue targets for last year and is acquiring new accounts on a regular basis - now is a great time to join and accelerate your career. The agency has a wonderful central London location, strong bonus scheme and a sociable culture. The company is on the up and looking to staff up hard for the year ahead!
