I specialise in recruiting within the media sector. This encompasses Media Research Agencies, Media Agencies, Media Owners and Media Consultancies.

I recruit for a wide range of clients within the industry, ranging from smaller boutique agencies who are looking to source the perfect talent for a new role, right through to global leaders within the media industry who are looking for the most experienced researchers in the sector to drive change on a global scale. We have also worked with clients who have built entirely new teams and have helped them to source the very best talent for these new ventures.

Terms unique to this sector: Many of the roles are quant focused, so a sound understanding of a wide range of quant techniques is key. Segmentations, A/B Testing, Google Analytics, SQL, SEO, SEM, PPC, Tableau. Campaign Analysis. A degree in a media background is useful but not essential.
