PPC Analyst (Manchester)



We are looking for a 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 the role are to support the Agency with:

  • creating keywords to briefs
  • analysing and producing compelling text
  • managing client budgets
  • seeing that campaigns are delivered on time
  • helping us foster great relationships with our clients by taking calls, responding to emails, taking part in presentations and attending face-to-face meetings
  • developing client and product knowledge by proactively contributing to digital marketing strategies and delivering insights in terms of competitor and environment feedback
  • getting involved in business development, including attending prospective pitches
  • assisting with inductions and training of new staff
  • delegating and organising priorities in the absence of the Team Lead
  • You will be a self-starter excited by this opportunity to influence the future of this small office with big ambitions.
  • Relevant PPC experience (2 to 4 years)
  • Excellent technical/IT skills
  • Mathematical mind
  • Excellent communication skills and a collaborative approach
  • Eye for detail
