Paid Social Group Lead


We’re a fast growing digital agency in the UK. We’re also a place where careers genuinely flourish, rather than get stifled due to lack of progress or resources. 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 work in small autonomous teams that give them the freedom they need to thrive.

We're looking for a Paid Social Group Lead to define paid social strategies and manage client relationships along with overseeing the delivery of activity. We have a small, enthusiastic paid social team that plan and activate across a broad spectrum of channels provide a unique opportunity for the right candidate.

We’re looking for an accomplished manager with impressive paid social experience and a flair for driving team performance, to take responsibility for the output and management of a group of clients and a small and growing team. A challenging role in which your expertise within the field will have every chance to shine.

  • Act as the strategic lead on paid social clients to define frameworks that hit our client’s KPIs and business objectives
  • Act as the senior point of contact from a paid social perspective across a portfolio of clients, assuming ultimate responsibility for all implemented programs
  • Lead key client accounts independently, managing client escalations

  • Ensure Paid Social plays a key role in the client’s marketing mix by keeping abreast of developments across social platforms and constantly encouraging integration with senior agency personnel
  • You will have industry-leading knowledge of Paid Social, ideally gained in an agency setting
  • Senior client handling and relationship management experience essential
  • Additional experience of running or managing digital marketing activity across other channels (e.g. Programmatic, Display, PPC, SEO, etc) beneficial
  • Demonstrable experience of delivering best-in-class paid social campaigns; e.g. through winning industry awards
  • Management of activity across international markets preferential but not requisite
