Company Description

We help brands make BOLD MOVES

Nowadays, brands want rapid, spectacular growth and they expect media to deliver it.

Clients used to give us media briefs that said "deliver 80% awareness" or "give me an impactful Christmas campaign."

Now we hear

"Take me from 4th to 1st in my category"

"Help me grow 10% in a market declining 10%"

"Make me the most loved brand in my industry"

These are huge asks of media, that can't be met through tweaking the media plan of two years ago.

Decades of advertising research prove that without a big change, large brands stay large and small brands stay small.

This is why Zenith help brands make BOLD MOVES.

Bold moves are big, brave changes to media strategy, delivering more impact for brands and more value for consumers.

Bold moves are backed up with a solid forecast - they are a better path to growth.

Bold moves build a partnership - we believe in this approach so much we link our growth to your success.

Bold Moves bring bigger ROI

This approach works for our clients, our people and consumers - it's why we are recognised as the UK's best media agency.

Job Description

This role is split 50/50 between Reckitt Health and Uswitch but because of the different brands that exist within Reckitt that will still mean an exciting mix of challenges and planning briefs that require different thinking.

Reckitt is one of Zenith UK's largest clients and currently bills around £70m annually across the Health and Household divisions. This role is for the Health division, which encompasses a range of well-known Healthcare and Personal brands including Dettol, Durex, Lemsip, Strepsils, Gaviscon and Veet amongst others. The brands are all part of a fast-paced team who know their markets and products inside out - so it's imperative we behave as an extension to their team, giving them the best media solutions and media market updates available.

Uswitch is a UK-based price comparison and switching website founded in 2000 and one of Zenith's most exciting new clients. Zenith was appointed by Uswitch in December 2020 and tasked with helping them grow their audience base and share of an increasingly competitive marketplace. Together with their other partners our ambition is to strengthen Uswitch's position as the go-to destination for switching energy, broadband and mobiles.
