PPC Executive

PPC Executive

Dark Horse seems to punch above our weight with PPC talent and we want that trend to continue. If you want a chance to change the perceptions of the industry and demonstrate your expertise in an agency that will listen, then join the Dark side. If you have talent that can be developed, you're focused on delivering exceptional client results, and you'd like a chance to learn from the best, just hit apply!

You will be responsible for the success of a portfolio of PPC accounts and day-to-day communication with clients. You'll need to be driven and put the client first. So what's it like working at a shit hot digital agency where you can learn from the best? Well, you'll benefit from flexible working, great holidays, and even your own trees in The Dark Forest. The team is hugely experienced, the learning potential here is massive so don't miss out.

We're based in Altrincham, Manchester or Cheshire depending on your elitism - it's not a bad area. Cinemas, coffee shops, and vintage tat shops selling at extortionate prices. A tram ride from Manchester city centre, we're got cleaner air to help with those creative ideas. Dark Horse believes in challenging the status quo and we want to take PPC Execs and fast track their learning to management quickly. We're looking to back a dark horse that doesn't fall for the agency bullshit of free fruit and a beer fridge. That's not a career, it's a thinly veiled pitch. If you can see through that shit, then read the job description and get your CV to 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.
