Senior Media Planner

Production Edmonton, AB


This opening is for our Edmonton office.


You could have the most insightful strategy and the best creative but if no one sees the work it’s all for naught. That’s where your expertise comes in.

As our senior media planner you will do what a seasoned media planner does best – ensures our creative connects with the right people. The results will speak for themselves. Your impressive experience will be of value to our great roster of clients. Some days you will work directly with our media-only clients, and at other times, you will work closely with your DDB colleagues to deliver unexpected and on-point solutions for our clients who expect outstanding campaign results. One of the best things about working at DDB is the opportunity for cross-disciplinary collaboration where accounts, creative and media come together to deliver the best strategic, creative thinking.

Think of this position as your chance to bring your expertise to the table – or for the time being a TEAMS call – and deliver the unexpected along with sound thinking.

Since this is a senior role you should have a minimum of six years of experience, have strong industry relationships, and be well-versed in all media platforms (including broadcast, radio, print, digital, TV, OOH, social, interactive, and emerging). You will be responsible for planning and activation. This includes research and plan presentations through to campaign implementation and management. You will be expected to negotiate breakthrough, efficient, effective media plans across all disciplines. And you will be encouraged to think outside of the box and tall block. Analyzing results and reporting against campaign objectives and ROI also falls under your domain.

On any given day you may be connecting with clients directly or working alongside one of your awesome colleagues. You will oversee the agency buyers on our team who will in turn benefit from your experience and mentorship.

 If this job description excites you, we need to hear from you. Taking on a new role during a pandemic is definitely different but you can feel confident knowing we have got the working-at-a-distance thing down. It’s how we roll. The same can be said for our onboarding process. You will feel welcome from the the click of a join button.

There’s one more thing. Your media colleagues are the best of the best starting with your lead VP Kathy Shapka. They will have your back every single day and will expect the same of you.
