Media Assistant

Hearts & Science background

Hearts & Science is a full-service data driven marketing and communications agency, and the third global agency pillar of the Omnicom Media Group sitting alongside PHD & OMD.  Launched in New York in 2016, after a successful appointment by Proctor & Gamble and AT&T shortly thereafter.  Since the launch, Hearts has continued to grow, innovate and deliver, extending its network to nineteen markets around the world, including London, Tokyo, Toronto and Dubai.  Hearts officially launched in Australia in April 2019.

What does a Media Agency do?

Simply put, we manage the strategy, planning and buying of media for some of the world's largest advertisers and most iconic brands. We work with some of the best creative minds in the world to deliver media solutions that span across all offline and online channels (television, radio, cinema, press, OOH, digital) and continents. Sounds cool, right? It is…

What does a Media Assistant do?

A Media Assistant position is the gateway to a career in media and will enable you to gain a solid foundation into any career in Marketing/Advertising. The commitment and investment that we will make towards your training now, and throughout your career is significant as you will not only learn media skills but also benefit from our extensive professional development program.

Over the first 12-18 months, whilst you learn as much as you can about the industry & tools (there are a few!) you will play a key role in your client team supporting the administrative & buying process for your designated client portfolio. Your contribution to the team and the broader business will never be underestimated!

As your knowledge increases you will interact with clients & media owners more and more and gradually, under guidance, you will take on planning and buying responsibilities. 

Key day to day tasks

  • Turn up with a positive attitude and apply yourself to become indispensable to the team
  • Support the team with a range of administrative tasks - Check/manage/implement media bookings, compile competitive analysis and research, track campaign performance and manage reporting
  • Stay updated on any program changes / launches, audience viewing figures (screen & OOH), circulation / readership figures (print), listener numbers (radio), new media developments
  • Build strong and successful working relationships with your team, other internal teams, media representatives and creative agencies
  • Weekly monitoring of all campaigns to identify any discrepancies
  • Attend training sessions, workshops and strategy sessions. Continually seek to learn and develop

Who are you?

At this stage of your career, there is little experience required, it's all about attitude… the tools and training programs are there to help you succeed.

Some key attributes that we look for are:

  • Good work ethic, enthusiasm and keen to learn
  • Strong attention to detail, numeracy and literacy
  • A good understanding of Excel, Powerpoint and Outlook
  • Interpersonal and communication skills
  • Planning and organisational skills
  • Proactivity and problem solving

We strongly believe that a diversity of perspectives and experiences enrich our work life and quality of work produced. We welcome people of all backgrounds and warmly encourage Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Peoples to apply.
