We're looking for a Senior Paid Media Strategist to accelerate change and drive results for our wide-ranging portfolio of high-growth, ambitious clients. Alongside this, you'll be a leader, inspiring and engaging the wider paid media team.

Impression were recently ranked fourth in UK's Best Workplaces™ for Wellbeing (medium-sized companies), and we continuously strive to ensure the best possible work-life balance for our team.

As a successful candidate, you will be given a clear progression path. We want rising talent to grow with us and there is ample opportunity for you to progress to the next level.

We are also very proud to have been listed on the “Flexa 100” Most Flexible Companies to work for and to be officially recognised as a Great Place to Work®.

  • You are an engaging, confident communicator, with experience presenting advanced strategies to senior stakeholders
  • You have an appreciation for the craft of PPC, with an advanced understanding of Google Ads (Search, Shopping and Display)
  • You love getting to know different businesses, discovering the role that your campaigns play in achieving their goals
  • You enjoy working with others as a part of a team, and will have managed, mentored or supported junior team members during your career
  • You will likely have used SA360, Marin or Kenshoo to manage PPC campaigns in the past - but your commitment to learning means that you’re constantly trying new tools and features

What will you be doing?

  • Directing industry-leading paid media strategy for a diverse portfolio of high-growth and global brands, across paid search, shopping and display
  • Ensuring proactive, innovative delivery of PPC performance, delegating to your supporting teammates effectively

  • Sharing your wisdom through training and mentoring team members, helping to develop their technical and professional skills
  • Getting involved with new business pitching, showcasing your expert knowledge to receptive prospects
  • Contributing significantly to the growth of Impression through campaign testing, developing our service offering and sharing your knowledge
  • Challenging yourself, your team, and your clients to ensure we’re always collectively driving in the same direction whilst being respectful, fair, and focused on results as we do it.

Not ticking all the boxes? Don't worry, here at Impression we promote a culture of learning and development so we'll help you out! There is research to suggest that women and people of colour are less likely to apply for roles in which they don’t meet 100% of the requirements but at Impression we want to ensure everyone is encouraged to apply with us. Equity, diversity and inclusion are integral to Impression’s recruitment process and we are committed to ensuring your experience with us is equal, fair and non-discriminatory.

Why work for us?
