Interested in joining the newest big brand employer creating and launching a ‘digital hub’, adding to Manchester’s vibrant digital ecosystem?

This is a firm who might be something of a ‘new kid on the block’ when competing for talent in the location vs the McCann’s and Wavemakers. But they absolutely dwarf them in terms of scale and brand power.

They’re no stranger to the digital economy either, and through this new venture are looking to establish a new digital media business as part of a completely new service offering they’re providing for the SME market.

It works like a Digital Media Agency - Helping businesses engage with the digital media landscape, providing expertise around campaign builds and execution for paid social, PPC and display advertising. As well as some other proprietary solutions which are still under wraps and will give their solution an edge and USP vs the competition.

They have an advantage through the connections this businesses already has in place within the UK SME market. This digital hub will be giving them new solutions to take to that largely existing customer base, adding a ton of value solutions.

Your role will has a business development focus, prospecting customers with this new digital media solution.

Where this role differs to many agency side remits is in you will also ‘eat what you kill’.

By that, I mean - Once you land a client, you will become their account manager too. Sticking with them through their journey with the business. You’ll be working as subject matter support for paid media campaigns. So in reality, you will need to have some knowledge of either Paid Social, PPC or Display (one of them will be fine) to be able to engage with the client at the appropriate level and provide guidance around campaign builds and execution.

This sales side of this role will be a mixture of warm and cold work. But there’s going to be a lot of support in the form of their marketing function. Who are delivering lead generation and inbound marketing campaigns on the business’ behalf.

This role carries a target, which is why there’s a generous bonus scheme of up to 30%. That target is largely centred around conversions.

So if you want to join an employer where the brand name alone is going to open doors for you, AND be part of something really new and exciting which is going to be entering the market at pace. Apply now to find out more about this one.


  • Digital Media Sales experience will be ideal
  • You’ve got a good understanding of at least one of the following: Paid Social, PPC, Display – whereby you’d be comfortable advising a company on media strategy
  • Able to demonstrate experience in pitching and closing new business for digital media solutions
  • Ideally you’ll either have:
    • BD experience applied in a digital agency environment – pitching digital marketing capabilities
