Company Description

Zenith are a media agency of 383 people, which has experienced massive and consistent growth over the past two years.

We have been the ROI Agency since 2002, which is the longest standing media agency propositions in the world.

Over the past two years, we have evolved the agency positioning to give it new momentum, and it is stark in its simplicity. New business, client work and agency culture are framed around 'Bold Moves', a clear and exciting proposition.

Bold Moves is a response to how clients' asks of media have changed. Media briefs used to focus on awareness goals or launch weights. These days, clients are asking for much bigger things from media. Stuff like 'take me from 4th to 1st in my category', 'make me the most loved brand' and 'help me grow 10% when the market is down 10%.' These asks cannot be met through iterative changes to last year's plan. The answer in communications HAS to be bold and different. Otherwise, everything stays the same: the small stay small and the big stay big.

Zenith are about making clients braver, to help them change direction to find a better path to growth. That is the Bold Moves approach. It has continued to drive pitch wins, bag more awards for our work than our peers and keep our clients happy. Click here to see what we are all about.

Performics is the performance-marketing arm of Publicis Media, in this role you will be working for the Zenith Performics Team. The Zenith Performics team were recently award 'Team of the Year' at the Publicis x Google Awards 2020.
