As PPC Manager you will be responsible for taking ownership of planning and activation, strategy and implementation of paid search campaigns. This is an exceptional opportunity to be the agency’s lead PPC Manager with the scope to grow a team around you.  A key part of this role is the ability to be hands on in terms of the day-to-day PPC requirements of the agency's clients, whilst having enough seniority and gravitas to hold your own in client meetings, oversight of strategy and new business pitches. Experience of working across eComm platforms such as Amazon and Criteo is integral to the role, as is the ability to lead PPC strategy independently. 

This is a really important hire for the agency and so they are looking for someone with a proven background in PPC and the desire to aide with the growth and development of employee's.

As PPC Manager you will be an all-rounder, someone who is comfortable with hands-on paid media campaigns but also with the ability to manage your own accounts and work with the London team to lead their growth. 


  • Day to day management of campaigns, with accountability for deliverables
  • Deliver PPC activity through Google Ads, Kenshoo etc
  • Investigate ways to improve the agency’s approach to PPC including performance and research.
  • Work alongside the other digital specialists to deliver multi-media strategies
  • Present and lead client meetings
  • Experience on Search Ads 360

For this position you will have a track record of delivering great results in paid search. This role requires someone with the ability to develop the paid media offering for the agency, backed up with the desire to implement your plans. You’ll also have experience of Google Shopping/Product Feeds.

This role offers a brilliant opportunity for really taking a lead with PPC for a well-established agency with global reach. You'll join a supportive team, based in a creative office space in the city centre who put a lot into staff engagement and social activities making it a collaborative place to work. Opportunities like this are unique, so apply now or send your CV to Becky Smith.
