POSITION: Media Lead (VP or SVP)
REPORTS TO: EVP, Insights
EXPERIENCE: 10 years
ReviveHealth's media department is responsible for paid media strategy and planning as a component of integrated marketing campaigns. The Media Lead will lead the department. Our fast-growing media department requires a leader who brings significant knowledge (and possibly provocative opinions!) about media strategy, planning, and buying, all in the context of integrated marketing that spans across all engagement channels (paid/owned/earned/shared). We'd like for this person to have specific depth in digital and social, since that's where everybody spends their time today!
Since the department is growing quickly, this person will help define the evolution of media planning for the agency, particularly in how functions as part of (and in harmony with!) integrated marketing planning. As leader of ReviveHealth's media discipline, this person will lead our effort to develop and own the agency's POV for media planning in an integrated environment.
The Media Lead will lead a small team (2 full-timers currently, and growing) of media planners, overseeing their work and nurturing their development and professional growth. S/he will be responsible for further defining, as well as evolving the processes, tools, and technology that ReviveHealth deploys to plan media. S/he will also lead efforts to identify and utilize the expertise of suitable partners that we work with in the media space, including agencies that buy and place media.
The Media department, together with Strategy and Analytics, is part of the Insights Group. The Media Lead will work collaboratively with these two disciplines to further evolve our collaborative approach to planning integrated client engagement initiatives. The Media Lead reports to the Head of ReviveHealth's Insights Group, and will have a partnership with her/his manager in building the long-term trajectory of the media function at ReviveHealth.
