Job vacancy – media agency and client manager

We're hiring! An exciting opportunity for a media agency and client manager to join our brilliant team.

In an increasingly digital world, where context seems to have taken a back seat, it is important to highlight the value of newspaper brands and challenge the advertising industry to reframe how they think about newsbrands and their effectiveness within the communications mix . We are looking for an enthusiastic, proactive and engaging individual with c. 2-3 years media industry experience, either in a commercial sales team or a media agency, to join a small team in the role of media agency and client manager, to help us achieve this.

A key focus of the role is to develop meaningful relationships with media agencies and clients, however this isn't a traditional sales role due to the absence of commercial targets. Instead the focus is on helping the agency and advertiser community to understand the value of newsbrands by promoting them in a positive light, with a view to raising their consideration as an effective advertising channel.

Specifically, you will be responsible for:

  • Raising the profile of newsbrands among the agency and client community by marketing their strengths in the media mix
  • Developing and building relationships with media agencies, clients and other key influencers by initiating face-to-face meetings - with a focus on the top 20 agencies and target clients – to improve their consideration of newsbrands and opinion of Newsworks
  • Working with the team to create presentation content, drawn from Newsworks' research and industry sources, which promotes newsbrands in a thought provoking, perception changing and useful/informative way and then presenting this content to relevant agency and client personnel
  • Leading agency and client training, both in terms of creating the content and delivering the sessions
  • Taking opportunities to help agencies understand the value of newsbrands
