Senior TV Account Executive

Job description

Are you looking to work for an independent media planning and buying agency that is committed to working with you to develop your career as a TV Planner / Buyer and give you the opportunity to manage your own portfolio of clients?

An agency where planning for performance is at the heart of everything we do. Where we have a commitment to investing in and developing our exceptional team of Account Directors, Account Managers and Account Executives. If the answer is “yes” then please read on.

As well as planning and buying offline media you will be responsible for analysing data and making recommendations on optimising campaigns. You will manage mostly mid-level client relationships, ensuring that the clients are receiving the right media plans, rationales, and reports. There will be a requirement to meet clients face to face (or via video conferencing) and present plans, rationales and other insight that will persuade a client of the value of your recommendations.

Working as part of a small direct response team you will have one direct report and be responsible for their personal development. Key to your success in the role will be your ability to engage with your colleagues in the digital and performance teams thus delivering integrated campaigns for clients that work.

You’ve probably got a couple of years’ experience in planning and/or buying offline media channels, especially in TV. Experience of press, radio, OOH, door, inserts and door drops would be advantageous.
You are required to be highly numerate with a keen eye for detail; you will be used to working with data and understand how important its accurate interpretation and presentation is.

A working knowledge of key industry systems especially MediaOcean (DDS), TGI, Addynamix, and possibly Adalyser or TV Squared is essential as is the ability to proactively use excel and power point.
