Our Organic Search proposition encompasses SEO, Content Marketing, Influencer Marketing, Digital PR and Social Media. In 2017 DBD became part of the Verb Brands group which resulted in the team moving into a custom-built office alongside the Verb team. This has taken the team up to 50 strong and alongside the aforementioned services, gives the team design and development capabilities.

There is a significant amount of investment going into the business now from the group and a huge opportunity now with bringing paid search as a proposition to the rest of the client portfolio.


We are seeking a Performance Media/PPC Account Manager to join our Performance Media team. We need a bright, enthusiastic and ambitious person to work across a range of different accounts, as well as help develop our proposition and assist with training and managing junior members of the team.

If you join DBD you will join a dynamic agency that is growing fast. Our team pride themselves on their best-practice approach and their commitment to exceeding our clients’ targets, and we need someone who shares this ethos and who can play a full part in the development of the team.

  • Provide detailed analysis of campaign data to establish trends and key performance indicators.
  • Get involved with other areas of the company – working with our SEO, Social Media, Digital PR and Influencer Marketing teams.

Candidate Profile:
