Paid Search Specialist
– Central London head office, but there’s no fixed office attendance days. Typically people go once or twice a week.

Salary - £32,000 to £38,000 base salary plus bonus and benefits

Not just another agency job recruiting someone with paid search experience.

I get it, there’s a ton of them about and they all look like cookie cutters of each other.

So what makes this one worth pressing the ‘apply’ button for?

Firstly, it’s flexibility.

The company doesn’t prescribe to specific working days in office. It’s really a case of you asking yourself this:

  • What’s best for my clients and the work I need to deliver today? If you can do it better from home than you can in office. Stay home!
  • What does my team need from me? If you’re training someone, or need to collaborate closely on something complex. You’re probably best doing so in person rather than spending the day on Teams calls.
  • What do I need? If it’s support and training, or to need run through some complex stuff. Maybe best to go in. But if you don’t, and you’re expecting a delivery… stay home and work from there.

The second point is opportunity for learning.

Whilst starting in a role where paid search (principally PPC) will be your main focus, you’re going to be given lots of opportunity to broaden this out and learn other aspects of paid media. Including paid social and display, and learning about the various consoles, bidding strategies, testing and optimisation strategies for these too.

The third element will be the business itself.

The agency is around 200 people and is an independent. Yet the client roster you’ll be working with include a number of really big names in digital retail, including a fashion retailer or two and consumer electronics retailer too.

You’ll be the first port of call with clients and key point of contact for taking their briefs, running the campaigns, optimising performance and reporting back too.

You will be reporting to the Paid Media Account Director and work in part of a team of paid media specialists.

They’re a highly collaborative bunch, and the work is pacey and varied. With the added scope for learning outlined above, there’s going to be plenty of scope for you to grow with this business too and become a well rounded paid media specialist, and get you ready for a move into a broader managerial role in future, as you’ll be able to cover a broad digital acquisition remit.

Finally - there's a bonus. Not something you tend to come across in agency land. But this company is one of the rare ones who do actually provide one.

What we're looking for from you:

  • Good knowledge of PPC, setting up, running, optimising campaigns
  • Ideally some experience gained agency side
  • Analytical and able to dig into performance data for optimisation opportunities
  • Sound knowledge of the various bid platforms
  • You’re up to speed on trends in biddable media
  • Able to demonstrate where and how you’ve driven results from campaigns and achieved improvements over time
