We are looking for an experienced media professional, with a proven track record of delivering effective cross-channel media plans, to assist in the planning, delivery, optimisation and reporting of our paid campaigns in EMEA. This will cover both brand and performance objectives.
The ideal candidate will bring energy, enthusiasm, and a willingness to learn each day at work. We are looking for someone who is hungry to grow and develop into a valuable member of our EMEA team.

  • Have the opportunity to grow and develop, taking ownership of your work.
  • Be exposed to wider parts of marketing and other business functions.
  • Be close to the impact of paid media and be involved in the conversations about how your planning is contributing to the wider organisation’s strategy/objectives.
  • Provide analysis and insights to support campaign recap decks + performance share-outs for senior level executives. Be involved in presenting these in key stakeholder meetings such as the EMEA Monthly Marketing meeting and Global Monthly Marketing Overview (MMO).
  • Champion the role of paid media as part of the wider marketing strategy, highlighting its importance to achieving our wider marketing objectives in key stakeholder meetings such as the EMEA Monthly Marketing meeting and Global Monthly Marketing Overview (MMO).

We’re looking for:

  • At least 3+ years of experience in a paid media specific function, either agency-side or brand-side.
