The Opportunity

  • In FAST Display we encourage creative thinking, so this means identifying new opportunities and constantly working with clients and media owners to bring new and innovate ideas to life
  • This will involve working in partnership with some of the most prolific media owners in the market – News UK, The Guardian, Google, Telegraph, Mail Metro Media, Verizon, Teads, and Hearst as an example

  • The role offers considerable autonomy, as you won’t be micro-managed, so there’s a lot of responsibility!

With Apprentices this includes liaising with the apprentice’s learning provider and regularly providing feedback on their educational development
