What you will be doing
We choose to introduce our graduates to the business through the most accessible department: the client service teams. This allows you to get a good understanding of the industry by experiencing a little of everything, learning the basic processes involved and finding out exactly what you enjoy the most.
Your first three months will be heavily focused on the digital side of the business: by the end of this intensive training period, which will cover all the basics of media planning & buying across all channels, you will be able to plan, build and report on Google & Facebook advertising campaigns. You will also be expected to have passed your Google Fundamentals exam within this time to pass your probation period.
Following this, you will be matched with an individual account team and given the tools and training you need to specialise - this allocation is based around your interests and strengths, meaning that you really are shaping your own career progression from day one.
You will develop Google & Facebook campaign proposals for key stakeholders
You will learn to conduct in-depth analysis and report on client campaigns
You will process media bookings for new campaigns
You will have the opportunity to develop your own specialism as you progress throughout the company.

Your first year at The Media People
Hannah, Account Executive
"My role has so much variety to it – with every campaign I get to see it through from beginning to end."
We are The Media People
We are looking for grads who are hungry to learn and ready to shape their Marketing career in the heart of London.
TheMediaPeople are a young, growing media agency dedicated to excellence across both Traditional and Digital Media channels.
Our name comes from the two pillars of our business: whilst planning and buying for both online and offline Media is our core offering, we place people and the relationships that we build with clients at the top of our priority list.
Our vision is to be distinctly different from the rest. We are a brave business, using our many years of industry experience from various fields and disciplines to be the best in our field of expertise.
Personal development is very important to us - to ensure this, we review everyone's progress regularly to help focus and grow the personal skills within the team.Promotions and pay rises are given when deserved, rather than unnecessarily waiting a whole year to review.
The harder you work, the more you will reap the reward and the further you will progress as a result.
We have a very supportive, “family feel” environment within our office – it's what helps us to collaborate and deliver exceptional work to our clients on time and within budget. On a day-to-day basis, if you enjoy your tunes while you work then you'll fit right in.
Our quarterly meetings happen over company breakfast and allow us to step back, celebrate our achievements over the past three months and look to the future. It’s an opportunity for everyone to contribute to the vision and growth of TheMediaPeople.
Celebrating the end of the week is a big event in our office - we have a drinks trolly that is kept fully stocked, ready for the moment when we can all let our hair down and enjoy time together away from our desks.
I got to experience my childhood dream of going to the Crystal Maze.
You’ll be learning everything there is to know about the technical set-up of all of our digital campaigns.
