x2 Paid Search Apprentice

OMD are looking for 2 enthusiastic and motivated graduates to join their growing biddable team. We are looking for individuals who are passionate about understanding channels like paid search ads with Google, social advertising with Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. You’ll be extensively trained in optimisation, audiences, testing and technology to fast track to a biddable media expert across all relevant digital channels.

Your role will be working on Betway – one of our most advanced paid social clients, with a heavy focus on DR performance driving sign ups and app downloads across the plethora of paid social platforms. A fantastic opportunity to learn cutting edge performance activation and planning skills applicable to a growing range of clients in future.

  • Working in a team on the day-to-day delivery of your client’s business objectives.
  • Responsible for digital performance activity, hands on planning, buying and strategy of paid search and social campaigns. Including PPC.
  • Management of YouTube and where relevant other biddable channels like Amazon and other retailer propositions.

We are less focused on defining channels within the responsibility of this role, and more focused on ensuring we have a team of bright, analytical performance specialists that can apply transferrable skills across a portfolio of performance channels to ultimately deliver the best performance for their clients against their core KPI’s.

Personal Qualities:

This role requires someone who is always seeking to identify areas of opportunity and efficiency for clients and be implementing consistent processes across the team in order to move our resource away from manual implementation to more automated ways of working.
