Paid Social
Media Executive

Is paid media is your thing? Think you can deliver real results for some real guns in the industry? Then you might be just who we're looking for. One thing we're not looking for though – nob heads… We're completely inclusive unless you're full of shit. We only really want to work with those who can demonstrate their skills and deliver, no fluff.

Dark Horse is a great agency, and this team deserves to work with great minds. Anyone with a hungry mindset, ready to challenge the status quo, wanting to deliver more than other agencies for our clients, and pushing the boundaries of success - those are the brains we need!

We're war machines working in a dark jungle. We may not be able to offer the flashy office vibe of other agencies and we don't have ping pong tables, but what we lack in vanity we provide in progression, development, and working with the greatest PPC minds in the Northwest.

Located in the centre of Altrincham with the hipster worthy food market and trendy cafes (we're no hipsters but we can tell you where the good food and coffee is… and how many minutes a Greggs run to our Tesco takes). Working at Dark Horse you can add Cheshire to your list of places you’ve worked at… That is, depending on your border stance. Realistically, we are only a tram stop or two from Manchester, so nothing pretentious here.

With ambitious growth plans, Dark Horse is renowned for its client service and transparency, and you could be part of the team making this happen. Get those ideas flowing, come out-perform and terrify the competition with us.

The “Perks” of Being a Dark Horse

Look, we won't lie, we don't do pizza Fridays. What we do actually offer are things that matter a bit more, the things that make the hype of work-life balance more doable. 

You've got a hybrid role choice – meaning we spend part of the week in the office and part of it at home, enjoying the joys of working within the comforts of your own four walls. Flexitime is a thing. There are loads of holidays to enjoy, PLUS Bank Holidays (people screw you over by not making that clear). We love our little planet, so every month we plant trees in the Dark Forest on behalf of every team.
