Media Executive

Job description

Are you looking for a role where you will be encouraged to develop your career in media planning and buying? Where you will be given unrivalled opportunities to learn what it takes to build a successful career in this sector? Do you have an enquiring mind and a passion to learn.

If you do then we would like to hear from you.

We’re Smithfield, an independent media planning and buying agency and we specialise in Brand Response and Performance Media, so we love measuring business outcomes for our clients.

And we recognise that the excellent and award winning work we undertake for our clients can only be as good as the people we employ.

As a Graduate Media Executive in our Planning Team, you will have the opportunity to fully immerse yourself in learning how an agency works and about the markets in which our clients operate, and the challenges they face. And you’ll be encouraged to suggest solutions.

You will learn the different purchasing mechanisms that we use and the accompanying sector specific terminology.

Analysing data and producing performance reports for clients with an accompanying commentary is a key part of the role. You’ll be fully immersed in managing campaigns and involved in meeting with media owners and clients.

You may have a degree; you may have previous experience of working in this sector. Certainly, you will have an analytical mind and enjoy using data to tell a story.
