Biddable Account Manager

Job Description

We are MG OMD, the Agency of the Year according to Campaign & Media Week. We are also the most decorated agency in the history of the IPA.

About You:

MG is seeking an individual who is passionate about Paid Social and/or Paid Search Advertising. This person will work closely with major social and search platforms to deliver exceptional advertising campaigns. If you only have experience in one area, you must be eager to learn and be trained in the other specialization, as this role requires managing both.

About the client:

OmniGov is a specialized division that handles UK Government media buying. It is the largest advertiser in the UK and a top 10 agency in its own right, working with over 80 different government departments. In 2018, we were awarded a 4-year contract, and in late 2021, we became the first agency to retain the business for another 4 years. Join our award-winning team, as OmniGOV was named Agency Team of the Year at the Campaign Media Awards 2021 for the second consecutive year. You will work on campaigns that address some of the most challenging issues in our society, aiming to help, improve, or save lives, or simply to inform the public.

Be Your Best Statement:

We want everyone to have the opportunity to shine and showcase their talents. We are happy to make adjustments in the recruitment process to support you in being your best. Please discuss any specific requirements with your dedicated Talent Acquisition team member, or you can email us confidentially at

Additionally, our OmniGOV team has been named Campaign's Agency Team of the Year for three consecutive years. We are also the most awarded agency in the history of the IPA Effectiveness Awards and Thinkbox's TV Planning Awards. However, our proudest achievement is our people. We are the only networked media agency to be listed in Campaign's Best Places to Work every year since its inception five years ago.
