Traffic Coordinator / Assistant Media Buyer

Lee Tilford is looking for someone with 1-3 years’ experience working with media trafficking in an agency environment. This detail-oriented person must have the ability to learn and maintain the high standards of our internal trafficking system, while still adhering to internal and external deadlines. Candidate must be a self-starter, open to instruction and able to adjust work priorities on the fly.

Below are three of the primary responsibilities this position will have:

  • Manage agency traffic system for all clients and communicate the creative needs and deadlines to the appropriate internal teams/departments
  • Accurately create, deliver and confirm traffic instructions and deliverables to all outside entities (both traditional and digital vendors)
  • Reconcile invoices for CO-OP purposes

This position must portray an on-going sense of urgency and ability to juggle numerous functions at one time. Experience in STRATA VIEW & SBMS systems is considered a significant plus.

The secondary role as an Assistant Media Buyer will be balanced in-between the needs of our media trafficking. This is an excellent opportunity to learn what exactly goes into a media purchasing strategy from our Senior Media Buyers.

Below are a few of the responsibilities expected with this added role:

  • Media research, including pulling rankers and compiling competitive data
  • Build TV and Radio schedule estimates and set up media schedules based on established guidelines
  • Housekeeping tasks, like managing client flowcharts, filing documents and revising budgets
  • Update contact address book with new or changed contacts as needed
  • Monitor and report on client spot times and media effectiveness
  • Be the first point of contact for all new media vendors, gathering their information and proposals and presenting to the Senior Media Buyers

This dual role handles a variety of tasks in addition to those listed above while also providing learning opportunities for professional growth. Our media team plans and buys across regional and national markets, and is looking for a team-player to maintain the superior standards and service Lee Tilford provides its clients.
