Maternity Cover - Digital Consultant / Business Director (PPC Focus) - FMCG Client - 12 Months - Media Agency - £68,000 - £70,000

Hi all. I am currently supporting a network media agency in finding a Digital Business Director for a maternity cover starting late July/early August. This is to work on a long standing client for the agency, a big player in the FMCG space that you will be familiar with. This is a fantastic opportunity if you are looking to move into consultancy work, as 75% of the role will be consultative, and the rest market governance. The client has had a successful few years, despite all of the ripple effects from Covid, so will not be getting stuck in straight away to damage limitation etc. Due to client spend, a big focus of the role will be PPC, so you will need to have a thorough understanding of this channel and be Google Ads & Amazon specialist. Wider digital knowledge will also be needed as you will oversee a cross functional digital team. You will need to be at Business Director level to be considered or a well established Senior Account Director.

Please note - this is a hybrid working role so you would be expected in the office once or twice a week. They are based in Central London.
