Events & Marketing Lead APAC – Maternity Cover

Keep our marketing in APAC running like clockwork in order to smash commercial targets


WANTED: Super-organised, energetic and revenue-orientated marketing whiz needed to support the commercial needs of business across APAC in this 6 – 8 months maternity cover role. This person will be responsible for making sure that it’s business as usual throughout the duration of the maternity leave.


This is an exciting role at one of the world’s leading ad tech companies. This person’s role is broad in scope.


They will work closely with the person going on maternity leave to ensure there’s a thorough handover and minimum business disruption. They will need to make sure it’s business as usual – implementing marketing plans, processes and budgets already set – while responding fast to change in this rapidly moving company. You won’t need to fix what’s not broken, but you will be able to take ownership and resolve problems as they arise.


The person will secure speaker slots and #deliverwow at world-class events, ensuring the events deliver revenue and awareness among leading advertisers, agency trading desks, media agencies, DSPs and premium publishers across the region.


Working closely with the Global Marketing Team based in London, you will be responsible for creating epic presentations for spokespeople to deliver, localising global content for local markets. You will track event KPIs in Salesforce, own the marketing budget for APAC and be responsible for evaluating which events we should be speaking at and sponsoring.


You will also draft and secure amazing case studies to show how we deliver the most awesome campaigns on the planet for leading advertisers, turn our insight into collateral, blog posts and email campaigns, plus reach out to journalists to ensure they write about our insight, data and programmatic offering. Not to mention entering us for multiple awards across the region and running local product launches.


You will line manage one team member and collaborate closely with the global marketing team and Chief Commercial Officer APAC to make sure Unruly is punching above its weight and is more than the size of its parts across the multiple countries we operate in across the region.
