I am working in partnership on a fantastic new opportunity with an independent, full-service media agency who are making big strides in the ecommerce world. An agency who offers social media services across strategy, creative, media, management & paid to some of the world’s largest brands.

As a Paid Social Performance Manager, you lead on all thing’s media buying; making sure you are reaching the right people, in the right place, at the right time. 

This truly unique role is an opportunity to specialise purely in paid social.  

  • Incredible central London office, with outstanding culture

  • Clients – Chilly’s Bottles, Kopparberg, Nando’s, Box Park, Tinder & many more.

  • A genuine independent agency – you will not be a small cog in a big machine here!

  • The security of a large agency, but the learning & flexibility gained from a smaller team

  • Opportunity to work within a soon to be Certified B Corporation- who strive for diversity and inclusion

  • Working for an agency where health and wellbeing is key! Offering monthly allowance towards gym memberships, massages, or wellbeing sessions.

  • Opportunity to learn and develop within your team and through learning and development allowances of £200 per year in order to expand your knowledge

  • True flexible working culture – you only need to come into the office when necessary


  • Strategy: developing your expertise within paid media, applying original thought to build solutions to client problems, communicating this in a clear and direct way that gets buy-in from both our clients and our internal account teams.

  • Execution: of all paid media accounts that you are leading on, ensuring that all allocated budget is spent, achieving results that the client deems valuable

  • Optimisation: analysing the performance of your accounts and making the necessary tweaks and adjustments to deliver incremental improvements in performance

  • Reporting: analysing data and producing insightful reports for your clients providing strategic feedback and learnings from campaign activity so they know about all the great stuff we're doing

  • Growth: pitching for and winning additional paid media budget for current and new clients

  • Education: internal education of the whole team to increase understanding and raise the profile of paid social within the agency


  • Experience running and scaling eCommerce accounts using Paid Social.

  • An analytical mind: figuring out the best way to achieve client objectives takes creativity, problem-solving and evaluation of results.

  • Confidence with numbers: this is a data driven pursuit. You must be happy with looking at a table of figures, spreadsheets 

  • Curious and adaptable: it's a fast-moving industry and social advertising even more so, products change and adapt weekly, and you must be happy with keeping up to date with changes and learning about how they may impact our output

  • Real drive and ambition: we're a growing team and have ambitious plans, so we’re after people that share this mindset; you're eager to learn and accelerate your career

  • You have hands-on experience running campaigns on Facebook Business Manager and have had exposure to other platforms like Google AdWords, Snapchat, Twitter, Spotify, TikTok, Pinterest.

  • You'll have 1+ years’ experience working with paid media
