Do you want to become a broad Digital Marketing professional?
Then this could be an exceptional opportunity for you!

We're working on behalf of a leading independent Digital Marketing agency based in East London, looking for a Senior Search Executive to join their sports & retail team.

This agency prides it's self on being different from its competitors and doesn't believe agencies should silo employees into disciplines such as PPC, SEO, Display or Paid Social so they focus on cross-training and making sure you become an expert in multiple channels so candidates become well rounded digital marketing professionals who can talk at an expert level with their clients.

The agency has evolved massively over the last couple of years and has grown rapidly by working with clients to understand their needs and covering multiple digital channels for their clients.

Their client list ranges from professional sports teams, retail, beauty and fashion and everything in-between. Unlike most agencies they don't assign their teams to a single account, they believe this limits best practice and often stops individuals sharing learnings from account to account. They tend to work on a suite of clients covering multiple accounts and regularly arrange inter-team meet-up to share knowledge and successes.

They are looking to expand their teams significantly in the coming year having moved into a custom-made office in the East India docks they are already looking at taking over the entire 8th floor! They are looking at expanding teams across PPC, Paid Social, SEO & Display.

Search will form the bedrock of your knowledge coming in but we will train you across multiple channels so that gradually your experience can be applied across accounts more broadly.

The role is responsible for:

  • Coming in with a Search background you will work mainly on performance campaigns to achieve the best possible results for our clients.
  • Building fresh and expanding on client existing account structure while integrating 3rd party tracking.
  • Troubleshooting tracking and set-up issues.
