I took this role, if Im honest, on the faith of a recruiter who wanted to find a fellow brit a job in Australia. The agreement was that with my experience was in depth, but not in Digital Media, so my ability to learn would be the way I would stay in the role.
I quickly learned DFP and Double click, and with my advanced Excel experience I was quickly earmarked to run reports for the entire campaign management sections, receiving praise from all of my account managers and colleagues for the benefits I brought to the team and from reducing the turnaround times from 24 hours to 90 minutes.
The obvious hard part of the role was just the volume of work, but I never feel pressure such is my professional and life experience.
My colleagues were all young and enthusiastic,which benefits the agency as more experienced staff would be able to direct that enthusiasm.
The most enjoyable part of the job were the areas I was able to input my own ideas based on my experience of administration and organisation, that as strict digital and campaign staff, they might not have been exposed to.
The best job I have ever had, and has made me want to work in digital media from now on.
gym, coffee, nice building
hours were excessive, but necessary so not really a con.
