Our Client

The Role of Paid Social Executive

The Paid Social Executive will assist with the development of full-funnel campaigns in multiple markets, with initial focus on Meta channels in the UK and Canada.

This is an exciting opportunity for a proactive marketer to build their skills within a key marketing discipline. You will learn how to effectively communicate hard data to internal teams and senior management.
