Now Hiring: PPC Account Executive

£18k – £23k Depending on Experience

Looking to start a career in Online Advertising? We’re looking for an analytic fanatic with a creative spark to join our team of specialists in the heart of Bicester.

Your role will primarily involve working directly with our PPC delivery team to help us setup and manage awesome paid advertising campaigns across the Google and Microsoft channels (including Search, Shopping, and Display Campaigns), and via paid social channels such as Facebook and LinkedIn.

This will involve a lot of performance analysis of the campaigns we’re running for our customers whose businesses span a wide variety of different industry sectors. One minute you might be working with an electronics brand, the next maybe an industrial B2B type. The diversity of work means you’ll rarely have a dull day. You’ll then get to implement the changes we decide to make following on from the analysis helping to keep our campaigns well optimised. 

You’ll help to launch new campaigns which involves performing keyword and audience research, and then setting up new campaigns and building out ads. As your knowledge and experience grows you will also have the opportunity to manage your own accounts, and will become the main point of contact for a number of our customers. 

While the role is largely campaign and client management, there will be opportunities to get stuck in and help the wider business. Internal marketing, business development, and planning are all responsibilities that can be shared if this is something you have an interest in.

The Individual

We didn’t just say “analytic fanatic” because it sounded good (well, maybe a little); being comfortable around large volumes of data is a must for this role. We don’t need you to be an Einstein-level maths whizz, but a strong numerical base is crucial. In addition, you’ll also be comfortable analysing the data from our campaigns and be able to weave this into narratives that our customers will not only understand but appreciate.

You need to be comfortable dealing with people, and have the ability and confidence to clearly present information both internally and externally via a number of different mediums, whether it’s written or verbal.  Passion, ambition and curiosity are all great traits in any candidate as they demonstrate your ability to be a good team-player who will contribute to our ongoing success.

Digital Gearbox is more than just a team of PPC specialists. We’re a bunch of hungry marketing mofos. We’re constantly looking to expand our knowledge, always looking to improve what we do using the latest innovations. We like to think of ourselves as a fun lot – we have a strong sense of team, embrace unique personalities and celebrate the things that make us different. This is a mentality we’ll be looking for you to share.

What’s In It For You?

As we progress and develop as a company, you will too. We’re committed to ensuring that you’re constantly learning new skills, being challenged whilst also feeling valued and supported. We will develop a training programme tailored specifically to you to help you get up to speed with what we do, learn how everything works, and pass your Google exams while ensuring that your strengths and passions are being nurtured. 

We’re an anti-agency agency, as stupid as that might sound. While we’re a modern team who offer flexibility, we try to avoid at all costs the “fur coat and no knickers” look that so many agencies shoot for. So if you like the idea of working in digital marketing, rather than the reality of working in digital marketing, this position won’t be for you.

But if you have a desire to become really good (and by that we mean, super good) at an aspect of digital marketing that isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. 

We are just starting a new chapter in our agency, having recently moved into a brand new serviced office in the heart of one of Bicester’s finest business communities. The space has been designed to maximise productivity, and is a beautiful space to work. It’s also based in central Bicester where we have many shops and restaurants on our doorstep – fancy a Nando’s lunch? You got it! Got a coffee craving? Costa is on our doorstep. Our friendly and approachable atmosphere, coupled with our resident office dog, Nala make Digital Gearbox a forward-thinking, relaxed agency who don’t try too hard to be trendy. Flexi-time and the ability to work from home are central to our culture. Most importantly, we value a great work-life balance above all.
