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.

Simon was amazing at helping me secure a role in Manchester when I was still living in Australia! Simon was really positive and upbeat about the opportunities and put a range of roles to me that were all fantastic. Most importantly, Simon checked in with me regularly as I went through the interview process, helped work around the time differences and technology issues with interviewing from overseas. I never had to worry about where the process was at, he was always available to answer any questions or concerns I had. I couldn't have asked for a better recruitment process. I am really excited to be starting my new role, and when the time comes that I need new candidates in my team, I will certainly be asking for Simon's help.
