Senior Media Planner/Buyer – Manchester – £40-45k

Well-respected media agency is looking for a highly experienced communications and media strategist with knowledge and expertise across all media channels. Previous media buying agency experience is essential (ideally 5 + years).

The role will require hands on management of specific client accounts. Attendance at regular marketing meetings (monthly, bi-monthly or quarterly) is a basic requirement of the job and therefore travel and overnight stays will be necessary. The successful candidate will have a proven track record in pro-actively generating, developing and growing business by sharing knowledge, ideas and experience. It is also vital that the candidate understands the importance of enhancing and cultivating the client/agency relationship to safeguard the business in the future.

You will ensure that all deadlines are met, buying rates are competitive and that optimum working practice and ethics are maintained at all times. You will be actively involved in new business – from initial conversation, through to pitch process. The ability to write compelling, intelligent and balanced media proposals, recommendations and documents is essential. You will be confident and comfortable in pitch situations and be happy to present media ideas, in face to face environments, to mixed audiences of varying numbers. An ability to reason across multiple media channels and recommend media in a positive and robust way, whilst always maintaining a professional front and delivering proposals with context, passion and balance is essential. A mature understanding and working knowledge of the role that commonly used research tools play is required : TGI, Mediatel, Mintel, Nielsen, Hitwise.

This is an excellent opportunity for a senior planner/buyer to join a talented team, working across a true mix of channels, for a wide range of clients.
