When referring to marketing agencies the words awarding winning and pioneering are banded about like their smarties as most agencies seem to claim these titles, which makes it hard to differentiate themselves from each other. And in one aspect, yes, this client is no different. However we aren’t going to focus on this!
 
Instead we want to talk to you about where they are going rather than where they have been.

This integrated B2B comms agency is in a state of positive transition as they continue to grow due to numerous wins and successful client development plans. In fact they operate now in the tech, financial, retail and FMCG space and where we’d normally say they have an ambitious growth strategy, they are actually delivering in spades.

Rather than pull the trigger on an open wide hiring strategy, this client is ensuring they’ve got the correct foundations in place first. Therefore we are now seeking an Operations Manager to come on board and take the reins from the Managing Partners so to free them up and allow them to focus more so on growth.

To be suitable for this temp to perm role as an Operations Manager you will have the following skills and attributes: 
 

·      You must have been an Operations Manager for a marketing agency. This is essential.

·      Strong team building experience and a motivator

·      Highly organised with strong planning skills

·      Have the desire and commitment to lead in a fast paced and creative environment

·      Have the confidence to take the lead on internal initiatives

·      Have the experience and ability to apply your own processes and systems if you feel they are required  

·      Possess excellent communications skills. This is a team environment and although everyone will be relying on you to ensure the agency is performing at its peak, no one want’s a hair dryer as a leader!


In return for your skills and experience as an Operations Manager our client offers a competitive salary ranging between £50-60k plus benefits. PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS A TEMP TO PERM ROLE.
