Overview

Overview

We are looking for a Senior PPC Analyst to join Forward3D in Manchester. This is a rare opportunity to join a market leading digital performance agency with a significant global office. You will be a self-starter, with the passion and drive to ensure we realise our vision of becoming one of the largest PPC departments in the North. We need PPC specialists with a strong technical background, an eye for detail and, perhaps most significantly, individuals who aren’t afraid to challenge the status-quo.

About Forward3D

We’re a market leading digital performance agency working with globally recognised brands such as ASOS, Ralph Lauren, Hilton Hotels, Calvin Klein, Virgin Holidays, Gucci, MatchesFashion, Kate Spade & AllSaints. We deliver award-winning search, display and content campaigns with industry-leading performance linguistics, data science and technology.

We’re continuing to grow in the UK and to support this, we’ve opened our first office outside of the capital to invest in the incredible talent which the North has to offer. Our vision is to grow into one of the largest agencies in the North.

Our in-house proprietary technology platform is unlike any bid management or 3rd party tech that you may have used up until now. It’s a completely unique approach to handling data, analysis and insights. This tech drives a culture of learning and development around data and associated skills which will be invaluable as the industry progresses.

You’ll work hand in hand with the agency’s family of offices, in particular, London, to gain the expertise and infrastructure support needed to deliver growth for the Manchester office. Agile, data driven and pioneering, you won’t find layers and layers of management here. Instead, you’ll discover a buzzing environment where bright, innovative and visionary people will work in small autonomous teams that thrive. It’s a place where careers genuinely flourish, rather than get stifled due to lack of opportunity or resources.

The fundamental objectives of this role are to support the Agency with:

  • Managing large budgets and DR campaigns across several markets and Search Engines.
  • Taking ownership of the strategic client relationship.
  • Managing a range of resources to deliver effective marketing campaigns and programmes.
  • Helping drive our vision of paid search to the next level.
  • Making sure campaigns are delivered on time and on budget as regular checks will be carried out for performance against client ROI targets.
  • Providing feedback and recommendations to clients
Requirements
  • The ideal candidate for this position will have the following core skills and abilities:
    • Proactive, have an inquisitive, curious mindset with the flexibility to pick up a wide range of responsibilities.
    • Excellent attention to detail.
    • Innate ability to take ownership of an account strategy.
    • Passionate about paid search marketing.
    • Experience with Google / Bing Shopping desirable
    • Up to speed with tracking systems.
    • Good understanding of Adwords best practice.
    • Good understanding of third-party PPC Bid Management Platforms.
    • Comfortable assessing staffing needs or delivering new staff inductions.
    • Excellent technical/IT skills.
    • Mathematical mind.
    • Excellent communication skills and a collaborative approach.
    • Belief in our values - ‘Always Learning and Teaching’, ‘Use Technology to Innovate’ & ‘Take Initiative’.
Benefits

In return for your skills, hard work & commitment, we offer a competitive salary and an enviable range of flexible benefits including:

  • Significant career opportunities by being exposed to a wide range range of tasks and projects as part of a growing office
  • 24 days annual leave (increasing by 1 day for every year you work with us)
