About you: 

As Ad Coordinator, you will:

  • Monitor and coordinate advertisement progression throughout the workflows, from sales booking through to client contact, advertisement setting, approval, flatplanning and final page layout.
  • Make contact with all clients booked into allocated publications in a timely manner, providing them with clear instruction, information and advice where appropriate (deadlines, technical or copy content requirements and copy supply options).
  • Obtain copy for all advertisement bookings and client/sales approval on in-house produced artwork, where required and in accordance with our practices. Ensure each advertiser requiring our design service has their needs met and their expectations exceeded.
  • Produce spreadsheets, obtain flatplans and organise pages ensuring that all are completed and ready to be moved to the PDF stage. Where appropriate organise and/or produce PDF documents or printouts for editorial flatplanning or Branded Content client sign-off.
  • Keep accurate and concise records of communication with clients and internal contacts.
  • Provide an exceptional level of service that advertisers and internal customers value and hold in high regard.
  • Establish and build upon effective relations with internal departments and contacts (Sales, Editorial, Production, Repro and Marketing).
  • Attend, participate in, lead (where appropriate) update and advertisement feature meetings with sales team contacts and designers.
