  • Multi-brand/multi-client experience or global brand experience is highly desirable.
  • An excellent track record in acquisition PPC, ideally in working with tech services or a recurring revenue business.

What you’ll get in return

Enjoy 27 days of leave plus bank holidays, hybrid working, contributory pension scheme and private healthcare. Fitness groups and social events are also getting organised as the teams grow. It’s an exciting time to give your two cents on what benefits motivate you most as they get up and running (literally!).
