As a result, we design communication strategies that deliver short term results and help brands build for the future.
As part of WPP, the world's largest marketing communications services group, and GroupM, WPP’s consolidated media investment management arm, we have access to the richest data, most robust benchmarks and most advanced capabilities in the market. This helps us provide comprehensive solutions to all marketing challenges.
Our success is underpinned by our long-standing ‘People First, Better Results’ belief. We know that by investing in our people’s whole-person wellbeing, careers and capabilities, we will help grow our clients’ businesses.
In 2022, this approach led MediaCom to be crowned Global Media Network of the Year by Adweek and Spikes Asia, in addition to being the current Media Network of the Year at Eurobest, Festival of Media Global, M&M Global and the #1 agency in the world, according to the WARC Media 100 ranking (MediaCom New York).

Shell is one of MediaCom’s largest Global accounts and holds a very prestigious position within the agency. It’s held up as being one of the most innovative, exciting clients to work on – and for good reason. A combination of strong leadership, sizeable media budgets and meaty communications briefs has led to multi-award winning work, and critical business results.
The Shell Downstream Business refers their activities that are consumer facing – i.e. Retail (Petrol Forecourts, Fuels etc) and Lubricants (Motor Oil for Cars/Trucks and Motorcycles). Whilst Shell’s ultimate goal is to increase sales and revenue, the evolving market and business context (particularly growing concerns over Climate Change and widespread demand for action) mean that Shell has many fundamental challenges to overcome in order to do this. For us, this might mean helping them to launch their new Electric Vehicle offering as they diversify into cleaner energy solutions or working on a brief to help them bring their new Zero Carbon Product positioning to life in a category where there are high levels of cynicism and negative sentiment. There are many initiatives and strategies to get your teeth into to help develop and effectively bring to market.
You would be joining a dedicated client team at MediaCom and be part of a friendly team of high performers with diverse skillsets and backgrounds, from planning, through to strategy and digital.
The Media Executive will support the Shell Global Client Team across the Downstream Business (Retail and Lubricants). As a team we work towards developing global strategies and campaigns that make a real difference to our client’s business.
A key focus for this role will be handling day to day relationships with our network to maintain accurate global reporting tools, reconciliation of local market media investment, instilling best practice ways of working and outputs (roll out of global guidance, sharing learnings, adherence to global templates and timelines etc.), maintaining accurate records and assisting in ongoing and ad hoc account tasks (status reports, calls, meetings, timelines, competitive/finance/campaign reviews etc.).
The role will require communication with multiple managers within the team, various specialist teams within the agency and multiple Shell clients.
