Key responsibilities

  • Working with the wider team to provide brilliant, high-performing digital campaigns across multiple channels – including paid social, PPC, and display.
  • Helping with planning & client servicing through understanding of clients’ business, business issues, marketing and media objectives
  • Will grow into building strong relationships with clients by providing proactive servicing
