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 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:
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.
We'd be very happy to have a discussion based on how we would go about finding the right media planner and buyer for your organisation.
