We’re Hiring! Are You Looking For a New PPC Role?

Author Jon Quinton 6 min read time

2019 was an amazing year for Overdrive Digital, with the team expanding and lots of new people and clients joining us. And on that note, we’re hiring again!

This time we’re looking for a PPC executive – you can see the full job spec below, but first I wanted to give a little bit of a taste as to what it’s like working here.

A large part of the idea behind setting up Overdrive three years ago (ish) was to gather a bunch of people who were a) great at what they do and b) love coming into work together each day. 2019 feels like the year that we really started to achieve this.

Here’s a little snapshot of our day out in September – a rather hilarious day spent on a barge, chugging slowly along the River Wey:

Join our team

Don’t just take my word for it though – here’s a few words from Nina who joined our team in January:

“Working at Overdrive Digital has been amazing so far! As a recent graduate, I have enjoyed learning valuable skills from my role as a Paid Media Executive, as well as refining my existing skillset. Our client base is varied in sector, which keeps workload engaging and interesting. As a young company, there is plenty of room for growth and steps to progression are clearly addressed and well-nurtured. The office atmosphere is lovely and relaxed, and I am happy to be part of such a lovely team!”

If you want a bit more flavour of what we’re like, do feel free to give us a follow on Instagram:


As well as having an excellent time, there is also a huge focus on personal development. Everyone on the team gets a healthy training budget each year to spend on training courses or conference tickets. The onus is on you to find what you feel would be valuable, ultimately giving you the opportunity to get investment in the areas where YOU feel you need it.

On top of all of this, I also really believe that sharing the success of the business is really important. We do a profit share bonus scheme and are always looking for ways to make everyone feel like part of the success.

If this sounds like the kind of environment you’d like to work in and you have a proven year’s experience in PPC, please do get in touch.

If PPC isn’t quite your thing, but you’re interested in a career in digital marketing then please do also get in touch – there are more opportunities around the corner and we’d love to connect!
