This is one of those opportunities that doesn't come around very often. You'll have the opportunity to join a growing media agency that is doing really well in the new business tables. The agency is very well resourced and has a medium term business plan to break into the top 5.

The role on offer is to join the Broadcast team as one of the key TV Account Directors in the agency. You will get the chance to work on a range of industry leading brands across various sectors. The role offers huge variation so you will always be kept on your toes.

You will oversee your team's planning and buying of TV and VoD campaigns, managing the team on a day to day basis. You'll also play a key role in defining overarching TV and VOD strategies for your clients - working closely with senior clients on a day to day basis to fully understand their business needs and how TV can be used to achieve these.

You will work closely with the Broadcast and Commercial Director across your business highlighting areas of commercial opportunity. You will be responsible for monitoring and delivering client KPI's / PRF's. There will also be a need to work closely with the team for audits and you will be expected to deal with auditors to ensure the agency is receiving the best outcome.

This really is a great opportunity. You'll be working at one of the best agencies in town, working with some of the brightest minds in the industry.
