Eyeconomy, the online media agency, is trawling media owners and

agencies for up to eight planners and buyers.



The Beckenham-based company has just raised pounds 250,000 via a public

offering on the alternative trading facility Ofex. It is using the money

to double staff numbers and move into central London.



Ray Taylor, managing director of Eyeconomy, currently employs eight

staff, including media director Jon Clarke. He is looking for a range of

recruits, from jun-ior trainees to experienced senior planner/buyers.

Taylor is also in the midst of securing office space in the City.



He welcomed applicants with media-owner backgrounds, stating: ’Sales

people are definitely on our target list. The job of negotiating media

is essentially the same, you are just coming at it from a media owner or

agency point of view. Workers from both backgrounds know the products

and use the same tricks.’



Taylor, a former business press editor at VNU and Reed Business

Information, launched Eyeconomy in 1996.



However, it wasn’t until 1999 that the online advertising market became

a thriving business sector.



The agency’s main client is the online jobs site Jobpilot.
