Google Ads Specialist

Competitive salary and holiday allowance

Hone your digital marketing skills in our Digital Delivery Team

Fantastic career progression

Wagada Digital has a single mission – to provide expert support to our clients whilst offering a positive work culture of learning and fun. Our team is everything to us and our clients flourish on the strong working relationships that we develop. This is a supportive environment where the right staff can grow and develop as quickly as their ambitions will take them. Our team grabs the opportunities that we present to them to learn and develop and our clients thrive on working with an agency with a fantastic team environment.

What do we need?

We’re looking for a Google Ads Specialist to join our teams. This could be a hybrid role for the right person. This is a pivotal role, leading our Google Ads team, so you’ll need several years of experience.

We’re growing our Google Ads department and are looking for a talented individual to show us the way – you’ll be innovative, keen to experiment and wanting to get your hands dirty. 

Working across a range of client accounts, no two days will be the same and you’ll get to test your skills to the max in a variety of industries and budgets. You’ll lead the work of the Google Ads team and get to share your skills – training and developing them to support you. 

We make decisions based on data, so you’ll be happy digging deep into our client’s campaigns to assess success and be happy to share your idea on how we can constantly improve results for our clients.

We would prefer someone with agency experience, but we’re pretty open-minded so if your background is in an in-house role, you’re passionate and you fit the criteria, we’d love to hear from you.


  • Build, implement, and manage Google Ads campaigns that meet and exceed client objectives
  • Conduct keyword research and set up ad groups and bidding strategies
  • Monitor and optimise campaigns to maximize return on investment (ROI)
  • Analyse performance data and provide insights and reports to the internal team and clients
  • Stay up-to-date with PPC and SEM trends and continuously improve skills and knowledge
  • Collaborate with cross-functional teams to integrate PPC campaigns with overall client marketing strategies
  • Manage budgets and campaign expenditures to ensure efficiency and cost-effectiveness
  • Troubleshoot and optimise ads for the highest performance and best spend
  • Participating in client meetings to present campaign results, discuss strategies, and gather feedback

You’ll be:

  • Analytical and data orientated
  • A team player
  • A problem solver
  • Willing to share your knowledge and expertise with the rest of the team
  • Someone who embraces success and failure equally – there’s no room for egos

You’ll have:

  • Several years of Google Ads experience
  • An in-depth knowledge of Google Ads best practices – bidding strategies and best practices
  • Excellent analytical skills to interpret data and adjust campaigns to meet objectives (proficiency in Google Analytics desired)
  • A desire to see our clients succeed
  • A strong attention to detail
  • A growth mindset – you’ll be aware of your strengths and weaknesses and willing to work on them

What you’ll get

  • Generous holiday allowance starting at 23 days plus bank holidays, rising to 30 days
  • A 4-day week on the last week of the month (10 extra lie-ins a year!)
  • Flexible working opportunities
  • A competitive salary and bonus of up to 10%
  • Opportunities to train and develop, go to conferences and share your knowledge with others
  • Proactive career development – we’re a growing company and love to see our team grow with us
  • Company pension
  • Company healthcare plan
  • Maternity and paternity benefits, plus flexibility for parents to make sure that you never  miss the school play
  • Innovative, exciting and supportive environment
  • A fun, friendly team environment: twice-yearly team nights away, team socials and lunches, charity challenges, a great deal of banter and a healthy competitive spirit

We’re an inclusive workplace, embracing diversity and equal opportunities for all, so if you have the skills that we are looking for, please apply now, sending us your CV and a covering letter telling us why you want the job.
