WHY WE THINK YOU WILL LOVE THIS ROLE

We are McDonald’s UK
& ROI Digital & Games agency, delivering experiences for nearly 4
million customers every day.

Our remit is incredibly
varied, and is focussed on the Digital & Games output with the UK & ROI
marketing client. We are an extension of their Marketing Team and work in an
integrated fashion with our partner agencies to lead all Digital & Games
activities (e.g. Monopoly at McDonald’s and Digital Sales promos on the
McDonald’s App).

Monopoly at McDonald’s is
by far the largest and most integrated campaign that we deliver for McDonald’s
every year (having just had is 16th year in the UK and 6th year in the Republic
of Ireland). It’s also the biggest campaign that the McDonald’s Marketing team
deliver within their calendar! We take great pride in delivering sales beating
Monopoly campaigns year on year. At TMS, we are the lead agency and define the
campaign strategy and creative concept from the start taking on the campaign
briefing to agencies and delivering the game mechanics, packaging, lead
creative and management of the campaign from start to finish.

This role is responsible
for supporting the team in delivering the execution of the Monopoly
campaign.  This includes design
development, mechanic delivery, partner and prize pool day to day management,
legal processes (from facilitating approvals on creative work, to helping
develop and review promotional Terms & Conditions), developing all the
promotional packaging as well as supporting the operations team in the delivery
of the campaign to market.



Outside of Monopoly, there’s the opportunity to sink your teeth into other
projects, working from concept development through implementation to post
activity evaluation on digital sales promotions where required in the UK &
ROI markets.

Finally, we guarantee
that you will leave changed. Because we help our people achieve their goals.

So come here to
experience. To experiment. To make mistakes. To challenge your own limits.
