Ad Operations Executive

BASED IN SWINDON, WILTSHIRE
Reporting to the Ad Operations Manager

Did you graduate with a Maths, Computer Science, Physics or Chemistry degree? Are you looking for career opportunities which will put to good use your love of numbers and data analysis, and utilise the skills you have? Digital Media Ad Operations may well be for you!

You don’t need to worry if you have no previous experience in ad trafficking as we will provide industry-leading training; this is a great opportunity to utilise your valuable skills working for a top 5 digital media agency!

As an Ad Operations Executive in our busy Media Team you will utilise 3rd party ad serving software (DoubleClick) to create campaigns, build tracking tags, upload creative and traffic creative to Media Owners. You will also be responsible for drawing up creative specs and ensuring that all creative materials received from creative agencies (Rich Media, SWF, GIF) are to spec and delivered on time.

You will work closely with our Account Management team and Media Planners to ensure a smooth transition from plan signoff to go live and completion. You will provide screengrabs and regular campaign updates, identify potential delivery issues, highlight the best performing creative and recommend any potential optimisation.

You will also work under the guidance of the Ad Operations Manager to set up and optimise display campaigns briefed to you by the Media team. These campaigns will be set up within our agency trading desk, Kaizen, and you will provide weekly and monthly results analysis and optimise campaigns accordingly, to maximise performance.

Qualities we are looking for:

  • Ideally an academic degree, science, maths, technology or English based with a minimum 2:1. Science, English or maths ‘A’ levels if not studied to degree level
  • Accuracy and attention to detail
  • Strong IT skills, confident when using Excel and analysing data
  • Strong problem-solving ability and multi-tasking skills
  • Ability to work under pressure and manage time efficiently
  • A passion for the internet and digital technologies in general
  • A basic understanding of JavaScript, HTML and Flash would be an advantage (but not essential)

You will be enthusiastic and eager to learn so no relevant experience in ad trafficking is necessary. You will have a passion for Digital Marketing and/or digital technologies in general and must be able to manage multiple tasks. A willingness to go above and beyond what is required of you is highly favourable.
