Offline Media Planning Senior Account Executive
Who are m/SIX
Our ownership structure makes m/SIX unique. We can access GroupM’s outstanding global talent pool, trading might and the world’s largest media data lake. But we are also part of The&Partnership, a set of agencies founded on collaboration and a philosophy to work seamlessly with both clients and creative agency partners. This gives m/SIX the ‘best of both worlds’. We have the entrepreneurial spirit and agility of an independent agency fused with the scale, resource and capabilities of the world’s leading media network.
Over the last 18 months m/SIX has gone through a huge ‘scale up’, doubling in size in terms of people and billings, meaning we are currently the UK’s fastest growing media agency. As such we are naturally less hierarchical than many other agency environments.
We pride ourselves on an open culture where everyone is encouraged to make their ideas happen. We believe in honest & transparency with both our clients and people – we have regular all company meetings, and like nothing more than getting everyone together for some sociable fun.
Who is the client?
This is an opportunity to work on an exciting telco challenger brand as part of a truly integrated (Creative & Media) team.
As one of m/SIX’s founding clients, we help this brand invest over £70m annually in media across all brand and performance channels, with an integrated team, rich in data and analytics.
Creating on-site hubs for clients is a key part of m/SIX and The&Partnership's strategy and it has proved hugely beneficial for clients such as Toyota and News UK. We’ve now created an on-site hub for this client which will allow us to get even closer to their business, build a deeper relationship with their marketing team and work in a more agile, responsive fashion.
About the Role
We’re looking for a rising media planning talent to join our offline media planning team. This role would suit someone who is numerical, analytical and enthusiastic, and will support the team as we strive to deliver continued excellent results for our client.
The role is based in the embedded team hub, within the client’s offices in west London, overlooking Westfield.
The role will involve working with client contacts, account management, strategy, buying and data teams to analyse the effectiveness of various offline campaigns and use the learnings to plan and implement future activity. The role requires someone who can be reactive, efficient and able to work well under pressure with excellent attention to detail.
The role involves managing a mix of Acquisition and Brand advertising activity across TV, VoD, press, OOH, radio and door drop channels for the account. Working on a large brand, but in a relatively compact team, means there are lots of opportunities to get involved in all aspects of the account, and be integral to the successful planning and delivery of all types of campaigns.
2019 is an exciting period for m/SIX and media with the client, as we continue to integrate acquisition and brand media across offline and digital channels and ensure cohesive, multi-faceted and effective campaigns throughout the year.
