VICE x Team
The Media Strategy team is central to the pre-sale and post-sale process, touching client relationships from end to end and playing a pivotal role in overall partnership success. The team supports a pod of sales individuals with strategizing, planning, executing and optimizing media-related activities across client advertising campaigns. We thrive in self-sufficiency, curiosity and proactivity when it comes to our work. The team atmosphere is highly strategic, collaborative, and fast paced. We hope you are as well, it's nice when we all like some of the same things.
Role x You
You'll be the "go-to" media planning expert for a pod of sales individuals as well as for clients, tackling client media planning and partnerships, overseeing and collaborating with peers on daily projects, and artfully creating media strategy and translating it into smart client media plans. The role is central to the pre-sale process
In the short term you will develop media plans both in response to client RFP's and proactively to drive business, providing direct support to the VICE sales force. You'll work collaboratively with internal departments (Client Strategy, Creative, Production, Sales, etc.) to ensure that all proposed pre-sale media plan elements are sound for VICE and for the prospective clients.
But after 6 months in this role you will be the client's go-to media expert once a program sells through, managing communication, asset delivery, launch and performance.
And after a year you will lead strategy on RFPs of larger investment values and join sales on client calls and meetings to speak to your distribution and media proposals.
You have these:
2 - 3 years of strategic media planning experience at an agency, publisher or related media business
Strong analytical skills with high proficiency in Excel, Keynote, PowerPoint
Expertise in "media math" and digital media buying/acquisition models (ie. CPA, CPC, CPM, CPE)
Effective time management and organizational skills, as well as strong attention to detail.
High comfortability with managing multiple projects simultaneously
Experience analyzing complex data and market research to formulating actionable plans
We'd love if you also had these:
We want to find people who believe in our goals and feel inspired enough to grow while they're here to fill the role, rather than someone who checks the boxes but isn't invested. We encourage you to apply and show us what you've got.
If you require reasonable accommodation during the application and selection process, please let us know. We will work together to best meet your needs.
