New Business Manager

Location: London, UK

Department: Business Development & Marketing
Type: Full time

Medialab is a unique independent data marketing partnership and the fastest growing company in the Top 50 Media Agencies, in Campaign Magazine’s ‘School Report’ 2021. Offering media, marketing, digital and data services to a wide variety of clients, we’re a team of around 100 (and growing), based near Oxford Circus (although we are all working from home at the moment, due to Covid-19).

Fundamentally, we believe the best business decisions are made when they are informed by data. Data is our heritage and has been at the heart of our business since its inception over fifteen years ago. We encourage, educate and help clients to use data in the most insightful way to plan and buy across all media channels and deliver the right media solutions for business success.

We’re independently owned, which means there are no limits to what you can achieve. We’re also known as market-leaders in our field, and we have a very happy client base which we’re proud of, including major brands such as Laithwaite’s Wine and SunLife as well as several charities, including The National Trust, Guide Dogs Association for the Blind, Alzheimer’s Society and Mind.
