  • Managing the delivery of performance reports back to clients, in particular for digital campaigns in conjunction with the ad ops team and where necessary with the support of the commercial manager and/or the deputy commercial manager;
  • Attending industry events and shows, both around the UK and occasionally overseas;
  • Developing a strong understanding of the electronics market in order to identify opportunities to expand Electronics Weekly sales;
  • Providing client and competitor information and intelligence to the commercial manager and other team members.
