Job description

Join a business which advises some of the world's largest advertisers on their multi-million pound media investments.



Check all associated application documentation thoroughly before clicking on the apply button at the bottom of this description.

As part of the Analyst team, your role will be focussed on supporting the client team by producing insight and reports on a range of projects including organisation design (how companies are set up to execute media investment), pitch management (helping to determine the right partners to support media investment) and performance tracking (the evaluation of media investment).


We're looking for a smart and numerical candidate with a head for analysis and an interest in the advertising/media industry. No prior experience is required, but experience in a related field - whether media or analytics would be advantageous, as would strong skills in applications including Excel, Powerpoint and Tableau.


You'll be trained from scratch and will be exposed to clients including Coca-Cola, Adidas, BP, Chanel, comparethemarket.com, Diageo, Dixons Carphone, Dyson, Liberty Global, Lloyds Banking Group, Pernod Ricard and many more.


The office is 70-strong and growing, based between Oxford Circus and Great Portland Street up near Regents Park. The office is relaxed, dress-down and dog-friendly.


THE COMPANY



Helping brands take greater control of their media ecosystem since 2009, the company works with a wide selection of global clients including Adidas, Aviva, BP, Dixons Carphone Warehouse, Lloyds, and Virgin Media.


Their specialist advisory team brings together expertise from media and digital agencies, technology companies and brand marketing to evaluate the effectiveness of each component, determining where it can be improved. This includes:


Partner selection

Finding the right partners with the expertise, capabilities and culture to support brands needs and goals.


Media performance

Evaluating media investments and assets and recommend new approaches to optimise value and performance.


Commercial governance

Designing and negotiating commercial models and contracts to drive appropriate behaviours and ensure accountability and compliance.


Digital acceleration

Designing and implementing the optimal data and technology infrastructure, to accelerate digital marketing performance.


Rigorous, challenging and independent, the business creates customised solutions that give brands clarity and control of their media investments.


THE ROLE


The ideal candidate will be bright, possess natural analytical & organisational skills and have excellent attention to detail, combined with a logical approach and a mature attitude. Demonstrating enthusiasm for media analysis and problem solving, energy and a ‘muck in’ attitude are all essential in this fast paced environment. 


This is an important support role in the delivery of the business' advisory services. The right candidate will be expected to deliver consistent, high quality work and there will be ample opportunity to broaden the role and progress internally after the initial training period, based on the individual’s performance.   


The role comprises of a wide range of activities: 


  1. Working alongside Project Managers & Client Leads to implement and carry out media performance trackers across multiple media and markets for international clients.
  2. Working alongside Project managers & Client Leads to help develop in-depth media campaign evaluations for UK based clients.
  3. Supporting pitch management projects to evaluate media agency offers and capabilities.
  4. Helping to develop and manage database tools covering all media and markets.
  5. Helping out with a wide variety of tasks on an ad-hoc basis to support the ongoing growth of our company.
  6. Keeping informed of the latest developments across the media & marketing landscape, supported by internal & external training opportunities.


Initially this role will involve substantial data processing with UK and International market data, changing often depending on the live client projects.


Reporting into a Group Account Manager and working on a variety of projects, this diverse and challenging role provides an opportunity to learn and develop skills not achievable in media agencies or media owners. The successful candidate will develop a wide range of skills and quickly develop solid knowledge about the media industry.
