Head of Paid Media

We're a digital-first sales & marketing agency for B2B SaaS, technology & IT companies. Using a combination of content marketing, SEO, automation, paid media and market understanding, we help our customers differentiate before their competitors get out of bed.

Our growing UK team is located in London, just behind Borough Market, and we're always on the hunt for an individual with extensive B2B paid media experience to create and lead a new function within the business which brings together how we use paid search, paid social and display advertising to support our customers in hitting their growth goals.

We're structured in a way whereby our Account Managers (reporting up to our Client Services Director) own our customer relationships, as well as sign off on strategy on a customer-by-customer basis. Supporting them with strategy & execution across the different disciplines of digital marketing are our specialist teams (reporting up to our Operations Director) of which our Paid Media team will be one.
