  • Ensuring that the Media team is aware of upcoming brand and promotional campaigns by being the representative of the team during the initial stages of campaign planning, attending meetings and briefing sessions with agencies to remain ‘in the loop’ on all activity that will eventually come into the Media team
  • Owning the relationship with our media agency, ensuring that they are fully briefed on upcoming campaigns and managing the campaign planning process with them from end to end
  • Communicating both the media plan and the communications plan to the wider business and and key stakeholders, ensuring that they are all clear on the approach whilst managing the feedback cycle back into the Media team

As a valued employee, you will receive free Sky + HD and Broadband, as much free Yorkshire tea as you can drink (we are in God’s country after all), or the stronger stuff if you’re more of a coffee connoisseur. A digital private healthcare scheme along with Herman Miller chairs to ensure your derriere is as comfortable as possible whilst you’re innovating and a pension scheme that will send you jet setting off into retirement. All this in a flexible working environment with some of the best minds in the industry help make Sky Betting and Gaming a really great place to work (if we don’t say so ourselves). So come join us, one sugar or two?
