Digital Marketing Apprentice – Global Social Search

PHD Global Business Unit is part of PHD, a media agency with a planning heritage. We help our clients use data from Paid Social and other digital platforms to turn critical audience insights into action and move our clients’ business forward.  Our teams manage Paid Search, Search Engine Optimization (SEO), Display/Behavioral Targeting, Paid Social, Mobile Marketing, and more.  We collaborate closely with our peers at PHD to deliver seamless digital marketing solutions to some of the world’s leading brands including SAP, Canon, VF, Porsche, Bentley, Triumph Motorcycles, Hewlett Packard, and many more.

You will help the digital manager and planner put these together, learning how to use platforms like Facebook Business Manager, Twitter ads, Snap Ads Manager, LinkedIn Campaign Manager, YouTube, and Google Ads. You’ll also be in charge of running the pan-European campaigns on the platforms and reporting back to the PHD team and the client on how they perform.

Ultimately, you will focus on further developing your paid search and paid social knowledge, how PPC and paid social supports other media channels, how to respond strategically to client problems, and what it takes to meet and exceed goals (both your own, the agency’s, and the client’s).
