FKA is seeking a strategic and creative thinker with significant strength in traditional media to complement our strong digital capabilities and help us build one of Western Canada’s top media departments.
The successful candidate will strategize, plan and buy media for a variety of medium-sized and enterprise clients with budgets that range from five to seven figures. Attention to detail is critical. This senior position will work out of our Edmonton office and will report to the Director of Media Services and assist with department leadership and mentorship for six other media professionals.
Strong communication skills are needed as well as robust meeting and presentation capabilities. Candidates should be confident being the most senior media person in a room and must be adept at building relationships with client contacts but also within a highly-integrated, full-service agency with colleagues from different backgrounds and disciplines.
Familiarity with traditional media planning and buying software and tools is a must. Relationships with key traditional media vendors will be an advantage for candidates.
Great research, data and analytical skills are definitely required, as is a passion for insightful reporting that goes beyond the numbers. Candidates who understand digital tracking and tagging tools and can implement them will be favoured.
This position features significant potential for career development and growth. Media is the fastest-growing department at FKA and the agency was ranked 150 on the 2018 GROWTH 500 list of Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies. FKA has offices in Edmonton and Toronto with a total of 33 employees.
