Why this role?

At Ogilvy, we believe in the power of combining media thinking with creative excellence.

The sole focus on efficiency in traditional media agencies shrinks the potential of creativity with its emphasis on simplistic numbers-based optimization. However, creativity on its own is not the winning solution either because it rarely delivers on the full potential of ideas. Our thinking combines media with strategic and creative capabilities at one of the top agencies in the world.


Why you?

It is time for you to plan your next move. What matters to you is to keep learning and growing, quickly. Ogilvy is looking for a talented associate media director to lead the operation of their performance team, and it may be you. You are obsessed with optimization and won’t stop testing until you’ve beat the forecast. You take joy in implementing work that is precise and accurate, and believe that the devil is in the details. You like the creative product and pride yourself on being an excellent collaborator to the creative team. Since life isn’t only about work, you have a good sense of camaraderie and value human relations. You believe the industry is in the middle of a transformation and you want to play your part. It starts at Ogilvy.
