Here's what we need

Salary: £28,000 - £35,000, negotiable depending on experience

Reporting to your Paid Media Manager you will support them across a portfolio of paid media campaigns – focusing on Paid Search and Paid Social but also expanding into Display, Native and Addressable Media.

Your role is to support the planning and delivery of campaigns within your portfolio. This is a hands-on role that requires a mathematical and analytical mind with a focus on building and optimising campaigns across multiple platforms.

For these campaigns we will need to craft media plans that are designed to yield exceptional results for our clients whilst successfully growing their revenue with RocketMill. These may involve higher fees in order to secure more resource towards their existing campaign, cross selling into other services, or the adoption of new services that RocketMill develop. These media plans will be composed with the best interests of your client’s front-of-mind and will be communicated by you and your Media Manager to your clients.

This role requires you to be dependable and accountable for your work. Day to day you will be analysing performance and delivering insightful reporting against forecasts and media strategies. Internally you will need to report to your media manager on campaign health, threats and opportunities.

We work in an ever-changing industry that requires continual learning, allowing us to take advantage of technological developments in the paid media environment. Your knowledge of digital marketing coupled with the client dialogue you undertake will inevitably lead to you unearthing opportunities for RocketMill. From time to time you will need to consider new products or services that clients need and that we should consider developing.
