Paid Search Specialist

£29,000 - £35,000
Remote / Sheffield

A fantastic opportunity has arisen for a Paid Search Specialist with strong Google Ads knowledge, and great client-facing skills to join our talented 20-person digital marketing team.

We're looking for someone with at least three years of experience managing and optimising Google Ads accounts and who is eager to help develop our Paid Media team.

Evoluted is a multi-award-winning leading full-service digital agency based in Sheffield, South Yorkshire. We specialise in results-focused digital marketing, bespoke web development and digital design for recognised brands and SMEs across the UK.

Reporting directly to the Paid Media Manager, you will be planning and executing multi-channel strategies on behalf of our diverse portfolio of local and national clients. You will be joining an experienced and enthusiastic team operating at the top of their game. While you will be expected to work independently on some projects, you will also be provided the opportunity to both lead and support colleagues on larger projects.

As Paid Media Specialist, you will play an integral role in leading positive change at both team and department levels, through strategy planning, initiative and knowledge sharing.

We celebrate diversity and value the unique perspectives and experiences that each team member brings to the table. We are committed to creating an inclusive and welcoming work environment where everyone feels empowered to thrive and contribute their best. We actively promote equal opportunities and foster an atmosphere of respect, collaboration, and innovation.

And recognising that as a company we’re empowered to achieve more than as individuals we aim to give back more than we receive. Collectively we have a unique opportunity to affect change for people and for our planet through charity, education, socio-economic growth and sustainability.
