Paid Media Trainee

application Closes31/3/2024

Who we are:

We are Spekk; a life-changing, world-beating, boundlessly modest, UK-based Paid Media Agency and marketing advisor. We create marketing strategies and advertising campaigns for some of the coolest brands out there – from start-ups to global leaders. With a young, talented team, Spekk is a highly stimulating environment for the talented and energetic.




What you’ll do:

At Spekk, we can’t offer brutal, back-breaking hours or compulsory rules on formal attire. We leave that to the prehistoric multinationals who’ll most likely forget your name by Q2 – or whatever those guys call ‘spring.’ 


You’ll support the core part of our business: running ads for our clients. 


Your job will be to support our paid media team, mining and analysing data, creating  smart ad strategies, executing ad campaigns, and monitoring their performance. If you aren’t excited by the prospect of spending your days creating magical spreadsheets and working with Meta andTikTok Ads Manager, this is the wrong job for you.



What you’ll get:

At Spekk we sell our skills and intellect to our clients. Our staff are our “assets” but also our friends. Which is important to us – and it should be to you too. We take on a small number of cool, brave clients, build them a formidable marketing strategy… and have a bloody good time doing it.


If there were one thing we’d say Spekk does best, it’s marrying strategy with creative execution. This is something you’ll learn about ‘til your ears bleed. It’s also the most useful skill you’ll take away from working with us – if for some insane reason you ever decided to leave.


You’ll also get to work with some of the coolest companies in the world. We’re not just saying that either.


You’ll work with jungle festivals in Costa Rica, disruptive tech businesses, eco-educational institutions and the company that made Drake’s bed. Yeah, exactly.




Timings & remuneration:

  • Start date: Early 2024. Full-time position, in it for the long run.
  • We’re flexible around freelance/employment forms – we can figure out what suits both sides best.
  • Remuneration: £23,000 – £32,000 depending on experience.




Benefits & Perks:

  • Team trips to places like Barcelona, Nice and Mallorca (2-3 per year)
  • £500 one-off allocation for home office set-up.
  • Fully remote workforce with team members based in the UK, Sweden, Spain, Germany, France and Portugal.
  • Casa Spekk in Barcelona (our own ‘brand home’). Those who are based in the city or just passing by can take full advantage of this collaboration space.




Must-have criteria:

  • You’ve got at least a Bachelor’s degree.
  • You’re highly proficient in written and spoken English.




Please apply if…

  • You’ve either worked in Facebook & Tiktok Ads Manager for 1+ years or have completed a Facebook Media Buying Certification.
  • You’re a human calculator.
  • You can work during UK office hours (we’re pretty flexible, but for meetings we’ll need you to be around).
  • You’re good at research – Googling, reading, generally figuring stuff out.
  • When you go to sleep at night, you dream of neatly-organised spreadsheets.
  • You get good grades without memorising textbooks.
  • Everyone wants you on their team in a game of Monopoly.
  • You fall to your knees in despair when a comma is out of place, when a formula doesn’t add up, or when you’re missing a piece of a puzzle.




Bonus points if…

  • You’d rather spend your money on seeing the world rather than buying more of what’s in it.
  • You speak more than one language.
  • You’ve spent time running ads on any of the other social media platforms.
  • You know how to make sense of Google Analytics.
  • You have a morally and/or legally questionable story from your gap year to tell us.
  • You’d go to Burning Man over Coachella.
  • You can mix a killer mezcal cocktail.
