Programmatic Trading Manager

About the role

A little about us….

Bray Leino is a creative and communication Agency that drives growth through creativenergy, by going beyond, to find the most powerful way.

It’s the way we began back in 1974. Before email, before mobile phones, when London was still 6 hours by road, our founders set up shop in a gloriously rural part of the UK. It’s how we grew into a full-service global agency. And it’s how we still look at the world now.

Creativenergy is the force that makes us think, create and work differently to our competition. It’s what makes us this thriving powerhouse of free-range thinkers, creators and makers. And wherever we are in the world, connects us all back to one common ambition.

To use creativity to make businesses grow.
