Another Day, Another Job Opportunity

The lovely Caroline over at the IPA has let me know of another role that some of you may be interested in.

It's at OPera Media and the role is as a graduate research analyst.

The following stuff is from the job description:

OPera Media is a joint venture between Omnicom Agencies PHD and OMD Group. OPera handles negotiations across TV, Radio, Cinema, Press and Digital. OPera strives to provide the ‘Best value buying without compromising planning excellence’.

This role is a fantastic opportunity to learn how media really works. You will be on a steep learning curve with the chance to work across all media from Search to Inserts. Reporting to Research Manager, you will work closely with the Research Director in helping drive value for OPera and its brands and advertisers. The research team ensure that OPera is at the forefront of media research development, enabling greater access to information regarding the performance of all types of advertising and media measurement.

The role will require you to:

  • Distribute media research knowledge to our network, clients and the press.
  • Support the buying and negotiation process across all media.
  • Develop reports; media market forecasts.
  • Manage strategic research projects.
  • Research and develop evaluation techniques to prove the value of the different media
  • Develop OPera’s Internet/Intranet solution.

The role will need an individual with:

  • Good knowledge of media and business
  • Awareness of all the key media currencies and also the systems used to analyse such data.
  • Excellent attention to detail
  • Able to work under pressure
  • Highly numerate and analytical
  • Organisation skills with the ability to multi-task across various projects
If it sounds like your kind of thing, send me an email with your CV and a covering letter and I'll pass them on.

On a separate note, the Digitas role has now been filled, with an applicant who went to them via AdGrads, I think that's pretty damn cool. But hey, I am biased.
