Interested in our Paid Media Manager role?

You will need to forecast and craft media plans that are designed to yield exceptional results for your 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 team to your clients.

This role requires you to be dependable and accountable for you and your teams work. Day to day, your team will be analysing performance and delivering insightful reporting to your clients, against forecasts and media strategies.

As a line-manager, you will work with your team to develop them professionally and support them in achieving their career ambitions through coaching, training and providing opportunity for growth.

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.

As part of the media team, you will need to collaborate effectively with our Client Leadership, Creative, Data & Insight, Business Development and Organic Search teams.
