Senior Paid Search/AdWords/PPC Consultant

Job description

  • Do you love the complexities and immediate feedback of Google Ads?
  • Do you have at least four years’ managing a range of Google Ads accounts?
  • Would you thrive in a role with a huge focus on results achieved not hours worked, staff happiness, flexible working hours, and a half day dedicated to learning every week? 

Perhaps you’re working in a large agency and feel under-appreciated or bored, and you’re keen to go from being a small fish in a big pond, to a big fish in a small pond?

If that tickles your fancy, we may have the perfect role for you.

We are a fast growing digital marketing agency based in the Woodstock Exchange looking for a Google AdWords ninja who has mastered the art and science of complex Google AdWords campaign management.

While most of our team of 10 focuses on SEO, you will be the “go to” person for Paid Search. We anticipate within 6 months you will have a junior Paid Search Specialist reporting to you.

Facebook advertising experience is a plus. We want to offer a lot more FB advertising to our clients.

What we expect from you?

  • At least four+ dedicated years of managing 40+ Google Ads accounts
  • An almost unhealthy addiction to the wonderful world of paid search
  • You have successfully developed large campaigns from scratch
  • You have ripped apart bad campaigns and turned them around
  • You could talk about the intricacies of quality score till the cows come home
  • You are Google AdWords certified (duh!)
  • You have put a lot of brain power into what you want to be doing (and not doing) with your life
  • A straightforward communication style
  • An insatiable desire to learn

As the PPC manager, you will have total responsibility for the setup, management and the results of a portfolio of clients! If you’re totally comfortable with this responsibility then you’ll love this role.

You will have huge flexibility where and when you work. Part of the week will be at our funky Woodstock (Cape Town) office, and part of the week can be remote (if you choose).

We think 9am to 5pm jobs suck. So you will be free to structure your day around your other passions – boxing session at 11am…or yoga at 3pm…no problem.

You will be an avid learner, constantly soaking up new developments in the online world. As part of the CleverClicks team, we’ll invest at least half a day per week in improving your skills.

Most importantly, you’ll love learning new tricks and tools to do your job even faster.
