Who are Kandidly?

Founded in 2018, Kandidly are a growing Paid Media start-up, usually based in London and currently based in their bedrooms. They specialise in all things Paid Media, from the hard-hitters like Facebook & Google to Amazon, Bing and even Reddit, and they like to think they're all young, fun and working towards the same goals.

Kandidly are in a good place right now with clients (read: they've got a lot on) and the time is right for someone new with a couple of years' experience to join the team. They're picky about our clients - after all, they have to work with them - and only take new clients on when they're sure they'll work well together and achieve amazing things. And the same goes for hiring.

Who are we looking for?

This role would be ideal for an Account Manager or Executive looking to take a step up. The person we're looking for is already confident in their knowledge of both Google and Facebook and is keen to learn other platforms, too.

This job includes a lot of data analysis, and a lot of talking to clients. So you'll need to be good at both, and enjoy them. From Day 1, you'll have Kandidly's trust and the responsibility you're (hopefully) craving, as well as training, the chance to work directly with their founder and the chance to help shape their future.

The must-haves:
-2-3 years of experience within an agency setting (big or small, we don't mind)
-Extensive knowledge of Paid Search and Paid Social
-The ability to build and optimise campaigns for direct response
-Strong communication and account management skills
-Excellent data analysis and reporting skills

Bonus points:
-Experience with Google Data Studio
-Facebook Blueprint/Google certified
-Good sense of humour

What might a typical day look like?

No two days are the same, but your responsibilities will include:
-Designing, setting up and managing ad campaigns across Google, Facebook and other platforms, dependent on client needs
-Budget allocation, management and optimisation
-Monitoring and optimising campaigns daily using data visualisation tools to identify issues and opportunities and take appropriate actions
-Liaising with clients, including the regular presentation of reports
-Assisting in the training of junior staff

What can Kandidly offer you?

-Competitive salary
-Company pension scheme
-Extensive training and opportunities for progression
-A laptop and a generous home working equipment allowance
-Remote working, eventually graduating to flexible working
-Regular socials (post-Covid) and a casual, start-up atmosphere
-25 days' holiday plus Bank Holidays
