The Role

We’re looking for smart, friendly and passionate people to join one of the UK’s biggest and most highly regarded search marketing teams.

You will work with a bunch of clients from big to small and spanning a wide range of sectors. For every high-street retailer that you might work on as part of a bigger team, you’ll also have niche independents who’ll you’ll directly manage and who’ll cherish you as one of their own. This diversity makes for a different experience every day, and is one of the many benefits of agency life.

Regardless of who your clients are, the key is making sure they end every day (and week, and month) feeling valued, supported and well-managed. A warm, fuzzy feeling if you will. You’ll be charged with taking their objectives and building an approach to achieve them. This could include creating new campaigns from scratch or editing existing ones if you feel that’s necessary.

Once your campaigns are live, the job is simple: Make sure they continue to do better! You’ll analyse data, optimise campaigns, as well as keeping in touch regularly with your client to ensure they have the reports they need and understand what we’re doing to maximise their return on investment.

Don’t worry if you don’t have a clue where you’d start right now. We provide training to the highest level, all of which is developed and delivered in-house. Although there’s a lot to learn, there’s nothing to fear – we’ve worked hard to build a supportive work environment and help is always on hand. The learning doesn’t stop with your first few months; working in such a fast-paced environment means there’s always more to learn and we encourage everyone to contribute to the ongoing development of skills and knowledge within the team.

As if this role couldn’t be any better – it’s worth mentioning that we love to reward the right people with the appropriate career development. This can take a variety of forms – from mentoring or managing people to leading key accounts or business units – but rest assured, great performance won’t go unnoticed.

The Individual

Hopefully the above has given you a picture of what your day or week could look like here; fast-paced, autonomous and hugely rewarding. As such, we’re looking for enthusiastic people who are comfortable managing their own time, able to effectively prioritise work and recognise problems and opportunities to seek support as necessary.

We don’t need you to have worked in digital marketing before but there are some key requirements. Everyone that works in our search marketing team has their own clients which means that strong written and verbal communications are a requisite, as well as confidence in dealing with people at a range of different levels. You’re going to be optimising your campaign based on data; so whilst you don’t have to be Stephen Hawking, being comfortable with basic numeracy and spreadsheetery is really handy. Similarly, logic and reasoning skills are a must if you’re to effectively tackle a potential minefield of problems in a successful way. Finally – passion, ambition and curiosity are all great traits in any candidate as they demonstrate your ability to be a good team-player who will contribute to our ongoing success.

To demonstrate the above, we’re looking for you to have an outstanding academic record (remember, we love geeks!) including the following or equivalent:

  • Minimum of 320 UCAS points (ABB at A Level)
  • A degree classification of 2:1 or above (in any subject)

Language skills are a huge plus! We are currently in need of Dutch, German and Arabic speakers especially.

The Package

We offer starting salaries of £22,000-25,000 depending on experience and an excellent package including 25 days’ holiday, a mobile phone and a company pension scheme.

Unfortunately, at the moment we cannot support visa applications so you must have permission to work in the UK before applying.


Merkle | Periscopix is a young, friendly and fast-growing specialist online advertising agency based near Tower Bridge.

We are committed to providing the highest standards of technical skills and service and pride ourselves on an outstanding record of client and staff retention, with turnover rates significantly below the averages for our sector.

Our team currently numbers over 200, with a 48%/52% split of women/men and an average age of 27. We believe that work should be fun and interesting and are keen to encourage all staff to maintain a healthy work-life balance, including adhering to a strict 9am-5.30pm working day.

We work hard to foster a culture of supportiveness and co-operation throughout the business and have a diverse and inclusive range of social events throughout the year, ranging from fish and chip lunches to weekends away with partners and families.
