Account Coordinator

PHD is a leading global communications planning and buying media agency. We are one of the most acclaimed networks globally, most recently winning Cristal’s Media Network of the year, Australia’s fastest growing media network and ranked Australia’s 6th most innovative company by the Australian Financial Review.

We are now looking for an Account Coordinator to join one of our key teams.

What does an Account Coordinator do?

An Account Coordinator position is the gateway to a career in media and will enable you to gain a solid foundation into any career in Marketing/Advertising. The commitment and investment that we will make towards your training now, and throughout your career is significant as you will not only learn media skills but also benefit from our extensive professional development program.

As an Account Coordinator, you learn as much as you can about the industry & tools (there are a few!) and play a key role in your client team supporting the administrative & buying process for your designated client portfolio. Your contribution to the team and the broader business will never be underestimated!

As your knowledge increases you will interact with clients & media owners more and more and gradually, under guidance, you will take on planning and buying responsibilities.

Key day to day tasks

-Support the team with a range of administrative tasks – Check/manage/implement media bookings, compile competitive analysis and research, track campaign performance and manage reporting
-Stay updated on any program changes / launches, audience viewing figures (screen & OOH), circulation / readership figures (print), listener numbers (radio), new media developments
-Build strong and successful working relationships with your team, other internal teams, media representatives and creative agencies
-Weekly monitoring of all campaigns to identify any discrepancies
-Attend training sessions, workshops and strategy sessions. Continually seek to learn and develop

The role and ultimately your career, will centre around data as we report on every cent of media spend, track every campaign and as every day goes by, we use data more frequently and in more sophisticated ways. A strong attention to detail and an understanding of the importance of reporting and finances is a must.

Who are you?

At this stage of your career, there is little experience required, it’s all about attitude… the tools and training programs are there to help you succeed.

Some key attributes that we look for are:
-Good work ethic, enthusiasm and keen to learn
-Strong attention to detail, numeracy and literacy
-A good understanding of Excel, Powerpoint and Outlook
-Interpersonal and communication skills
-Planning and organisational skills
-Proactivity and problem solving

We strongly believe that a diversity of perspectives and experiences enrich our work life and quality of work produced. We welcome people of all backgrounds and warmly encourage Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Peoples to apply.
