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.

We foster a positive team culture by making sure that we enjoy what we do and the clients we work with, and we never forgo the chance to bring fun into our day-to-day lives. We’re really competitive when we flip a pancake and play table tennis, love to banter over a gin and pizza on our team nights away and stop work early on a Friday for fun and quizzes. Work-life balance is crucial to us, which is why we offer extended holiday allowance and the chance to work a 4-day week on the last week of the month. Flexible hours and hybrid working are available and for those with children, we would never want any team member to miss those special moments such as the school play or the netball match.  All this takes place against a background of mutual respect between management and staff. 

It’s not all ping pong and doughnuts though, we deliver fantastic results for our clients and the only way we can achieve this is from hard work, passion and ambition. We know that digital marketing does not stand still, so we’re constantly learning and developing to make sure that we’re at the top of our game. Our team embraces feedback and failure, to stand back up bigger and stronger. 

We’re looking for individuals with a growth mindset, willing to work hard and play hard, in exchange for a rewarding agency experience in a warm and welcoming team environment. 

What do we need?

We’re looking for a Google Ads Specialist to join our St Albans or Cheltenham 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 execs 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.

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
  • 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 (12 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
  • 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: early finish on a Friday for quizzes and fun, 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.
