Creative Traffic Manager - Brand Activation / Launch Agency
Competitive Salary Package + Benefits

New brands, products and services need to grab attention and cut through to be successful and that's where we come in... 

About us:

Five By Five is a Launch Marketing agency – which simply means we help brands launch and re-launch more successfully than the business-as-usual approach traditionally taken. We understand that launches are more challenging projects that require a more aligned, more focused process, because, sadly 61% of launches fail in the first two years!

We’re an independent agency with a huge ambition (one that is made credible by the fact that the people who run the agency, own it too) to become the UK’s No.1 Independent Agency.

We may dream big, but we are not a bunch of dreamers. We already have the business set up and structure needed for success. We’ve built a new and exciting agency around Launch Marketing, defining it as a sector in its own right. What’s more, it’s paying off. Our ‘Launch Loud and Clear’ proposition is more than a soundbite: it’s a proven process that’s appealing to clients who want a more thorough approach that delivers tangible results. We have our own, patented IP client management platform that is the envy of many network agencies. It’s the backbone of the agency’s Launch Marketing system, and we find this really helps open boardroom doors, and build strong relationships with external partners.

In the last year we have also founded the Launch Marketing Council in Australia, U.K. and U.S., attracting High Net Worth members from blue chip companies including the likes of GSK, Unilever, Diageo, Dominoes Pizza, Bacardi, and National Trust. So we are starting to get a lot of attention from the marketing media, and from potential clients who are asking all the right questions – ‘How do I launch successfully?’

With offices in LA, Sydney and London we are still enviously centred in Southampton - which may disappoint anyone who is still naïve to the real power of being an authentic agency outside the London bubble. We’re really excited to invite self-motivated and passionate marketers like you to join us!

About you:

As Creative Traffic Manager you will play a pivotal role within the agency managing the flow of creative work across the whole agency to ensure all work is completed on time, efficiently, profitability and to the highest possible creative standards.

You’ll be responsible for the day-to-day studio operations and the traffic of workflow to ensure the creative product is best in class. Working closely with conceptual creatives, designers and planners you will organise, manage and coordinate resources and the distribution of work to meet our business needs and those of our clients.

Departmental management and negotiation skills are key as you’ll be liaising with various managers, teams, and producers as well as different business areas including overseas offices, to oversee the whole creative process and ensure workflow is as efficient and excellent as possible.

Strong time management is a must, with tight delivery deadlines you will be flexible and adaptable working well under pressure and be able to prioritise and follow internal processes. You will have experience of using workflow systems, tracking project budgets and negotiating with external suppliers.
