Agency life can be scary. We’re not going to lie, it can be fast-paced and high-pressure at times but we’re serious about our employee satisfaction. That’s why we offer a competitive salary, a range of perks and performance-based bonuses.

Who you are:
You’re an intelligent self-starter who can prioritise work and manage your own deadlines under pressure.

You have managed paid advertising campaigns across Facebook ads and Google ads before. You work to keep your knowledge up-to-date in these areas, staying aware of any impending updates that may affect your work.

You have great communications skills, both internally and with clients. You will be required to keep your team and clients up to date regarding performance and progress on projects. At times, you may need to present proposed campaigns to prospective or existing clients.

You work well both on your own and as part of a team. The Digital 24 team are a self-directed bunch, who get to follow their nose when it comes to strategic direction in many cases. But, you won’t only be managing clients by yourself. Some of our larger clients have multiple specialists working together to drive the success of their online campaigns. You will also be working closely with our Performance Marketing Director and Specialists to strategise client success each quarter.

Data is at the heart of how you work. We’re data-driven marketers and we like to see when individuals share this trait. All of your strategies and recommendations are backed by solid historic or industry data. You like to work towards industry benchmarks each month.

We all make mistakes. But, as you can imagine, little mistakes can mean a lot to clients when we’re dealing with their marketing spend. As such, you will need to be meticulous with your work. This includes good spelling and grammar skills!

You have a strategic mindset, built from a holistic understanding of marketing and the relationships between online campaigns.

First and foremost, we are seeking a suitable candidate who has a driven mindset and enough experience to grow into the role if necessary. The candidate will be offered training if there are areas in which you require upskilling.

What you’ll be doing:

  • Managing client accounts across a range of industries, working within set budgets
  • Building and maintaining strong relationships through liaising directly with your clients
  • Strategising, planning and managing digital ad campaigns on Google ads, Facebook ads & more
  • Identifying trends and insights, optimising spend and performance based on the insights
  • Working well towards set KPIs based on individual client needs
  • Preparing regular reports that provide insights on performance to strategise future campaigns
  • Forecasting performance, strategising and presenting recommendations for digital marketing success ahead of time
  • Supporting the Performance Marketing Director and Specialists on a range of advertising projects
  • Maintaining an up-to-date understanding of best practices for advertising
  • Generating proposals for prospective clients, inclusive of competitor and industry research
  • Strategising and implementing Email Marketing strategies using tools such as Mailchimp & Klaviyo {training can be provided}

Here’s what we like to see:

  • GSCEs in English and Maths
  • BSc/BA in Marketing or relevant field
  • 3+ years experience in a Digital Marketing role is desired. 2+ years is required.
  • The ideal candidate will have experience marketing in the eCommerce space but this is not a requirement
  • The candidate will ideally have up-to-date marketing qualifications including Google Certificates (Learn Digital with Google)
  • Experience running digital advertising campaigns using platforms such as Facebook ads, Google ads (including Search, Video, Shopping and Display) and LinkedIn ads
  • Experience using web analytics tools such as Google Analytics and Google Tag Manager
  • Strong creative capabilities
  • Strong copywriting skills
  • Strong technical skills
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills

To apply, please email with an introduction and a link to your LinkedIn profile or attach your CV. Closing date 12 noon 21st March 2022

I am the Founder and CEO of Digital Twenty Four. I’m an award winning digital marketer who took a risk, and left the safety of a well-paid, super safe in-house head of marketing role to launch Digital Twenty Four in May 2015. But -it was a risk worth taking because I now own a brilliant company, with a brilliant reputation, and with the best humans working within it. And an award-winning digital marketing expert with over 20 years experience in marketing.
