Media planner and media buyer recruitment
We have successfully placed media planner and buyers across
advertising agencies in the North West since we launched. Largely
specialising in digital, we understand what makes a compelling
candidate in this area. That's why the largest agencies in the
world who have regional offices work with us. We also contract
direct with London agencies that have placements in this area for
both agency and client side roles.
We know the questions to ask
We appreciate that this is a complex hire, so we would look at
the following attributes to determine whether they are suitable for
our client's business:
- How successful have they been in scheduling a campaign which
effectively locates their target audience?
- Can they talk us through the latest developments in their field
- How effective is their negotiation skills and how do they use
relationships to achieve their target results?
- What is the balance in your planning between the results
analysis and the creativity which you add to the role?
- We are always interested in hearing the most successful
campaigns which they have worked on and why their planning and
buying made a significant difference.
- Through their negotiation, what levels have they managed to
save in monetary terms of their clients budgets?
- What sized budgets and clients have you worked with and which
are your strongest media channels?
Let us do the hard work
As our Digital Skills Survey showed, this
type of candidate is in short supply. Getting experienced media
planner and buyers who are looking for new opportunities is a
challenge so working with an agency who understands where they are
located is essential. One of the biggest reasons for candidates
leaving roles is the lack of training and development and
unfortunately agencies are ineffective at providing this for media
planner and buyers. So, if your organisation can offer this type of
candidate that development there is a reason to join your team.
The key to a successful media planner and buyer is to work with
one who is keen to trial new channels and technologies. However in
a very fast paced developing industry, there are multiple
opportunities being presented. That's because the online world is
oozing entrepreneurial spirit and new opportunities are common.
