Senior Manager/Director – Digital Media/Marketing

Salary: £40,000 - £55,000 + benefits | Location: London | Job type: Permanent | Job reference: OXSAMAD904

Are you motivated by being a crucial driver in the development of a successful and innovative Digital Media/Marketing company?

Do you want to expand your digital knowledge beyond media to incorporate wider marketing channels?

Do you want to learn more about how an Agency operates and be closer to the nuts and bolts of its success?

Can you be a number 2 and have a positive approach both from a business and personal perspective?

Do you want to be treated like an adult in a grown up environment?

Do you want a flexible approach to work which could include days from home or a part time option?

Do you want to develop a well-rounded skillset?  We don’t care if you have gaps if you have the right approach!

This is a fantastic opportunity at a brilliant Agency working with a great Founder.  You will have a solid digital background (although we don’t care if there are gaps!)….but more importantly, we want the right person with a truly can do and passionate approach who is motivated by really making a difference outside of the usual Agency format.

This company are a brilliant bunch of people from all different walks of life, from a variety of countries.  They come together to provide excellent digital marketing services, to grow and create this special business and to share some laughter along the way.

It is their aim to bring digital marketing fuel to CEO’s, Marketing Directors and Business owners alike. 

They have a solid foundation of experience to guide them and their core clients are mid-sized in budget and size.  This means that the marketing recommendations they make can have a massive impact and can be implemented much quicker than would otherwise be possible in a multi-national.  Being a true partner and fundamental to change, brings with it a high sense of achievement.

They believe there is a gap in the market for talented consultants that care about the business as if it is their own.  They also believe that the big agencies are under-servicing these middle spenders and can lose precious time and energy with internal politics.  By providing the best strategic expertise and dedicated implementation, drilling down to the finest details, they provide a service that is second to none.
