Job opening

Head of PPC

Salary: £40,000 - £50,000+ DOE

Evoluted is a leading full-service digital agency based in Sheffield. We specialise in results-focused digital marketing, bespoke web development and digital design.

To continue driving growth across the performance marketing team we’re seeking an experienced paid media professional to lead the growth and development of Evoluted’s paid media proposition. 

This is a fantastic opportunity for an existing PPC team leader to take ownership of a rapidly growing team at a leading independent agency; or for an experienced PPC manager to make the step up into a senior leadership position!

Reporting directly to the Marketing Director, you’ll ensure we’re continuously at the forefront of PPC platform developments and innovations. Leading a growing team you’ll work to develop our service offering, build relationships across our client base and support new business development. 

You will also be responsible for the operation and output of the paid media team including their training and development. Of course, you’ll also still be in the trenches with the opportunity to work with your own portfolio of clients, getting hands-on with paid media strategy and ensuring you can stay up to date with the latest developments.
