On the strategy side, you’ll have experience researching and presenting audiences for complex cross-channel media campaigns. In the planning arena, you’ve built relationships with UK regional media partners and know how to uncover amazing custom buys for clients. You’ll play a strategic role in helping to bring video game titles to market and mentoring a team of experienced individual contributors.

  • Experiencing training and mentoring associate/assistant level employees and/or experienced individual contributors
  • Deep knowledge of audience research and planning tools, such as GWI, SimilarWeb, Pathmatics, SimmonsMRI, MediaOcean/Prisma, DV360, and others
  • An excellent understanding of the UK and broader European media partner landscape
  • Ability to teach others client invoicing, digital I/Os, audience planning, reporting, and other responsibilities
  • Solid Excel-for-media and other analytics skills

Your qualities and attributes

  • Communication and presentation skills: Ability to convey ideas, insights, and recommendations effectively to clients, vendors, and internal teams both in writing and in person
  • Relationship building: Expertise in building and maintaining strong relationships with clients, vendors, and peers, understanding their unique needs, and managing their expectations
  • Delegation and time management: Ability to effectively delegate tasks to team members while managing personal time and understanding the importance of tasks and their impact on the team’s development
  • Problem-solving and critical thinking: Resourcefulness and skill in identifying and resolving challenges that may arise during the media planning, buying, and activation process, always backed by data and quickly shared with the team and managers

Benefits

What’s in it for you?

Compensation is highly competitive with UK media agencies, in the £40-50k range plus bonus eligibility. Our benefits program includes private insurance, a home technology stipend, and other perks. You’ll also join us for our mini-holidays in January– we’ve been to Cabo, Hawaii, New Orleans, and Puerto Vallarta in the past few years together!

Our stance

Liquid Advertising is committed to creating an anti-racist, anti-sexist environment. We’re building an ad agency where committed and creative people from all backgrounds can do their best work.

We’re looking forward to meeting you!

No agencies, please. This is a pretty good representation of this position’s responsibilities but is not a comprehensive job description. Duties, clients, and team assignments may change as assigned.
