The Media Store was founded in 1997 as one of the first Australian independent media agencies. We plan and buy paid media for consumer brands across all channels, whether that be digital or more traditional channels such as TV, radio, press and out-of-home. If you’ve seen one of our client’s ads thank us, if you loved the ad, thank the creative agency who produced it.

Within marketing and advertising, media is the end of the value chain where we spend large advertising budgets for countless Australian brands and businesses. The Media Store is in the business of solving our client’s business and marketing problems through the lens of media. Media is an important part of the marketing mix for any business, as it is where money is spent that is often seen to have no tangible outcome. We make sure that outcome through our publisher and network partners IS tangible and meaningful by staying true to our proposition of Media Re-imagined.

We are founding members of the Media Federation of Australia (MFA), the Independent Media Agencies of Australia (IMAA), the Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB) and Network One (a global network of independent agencies).

We strive to re-imagine media, to push the boundaries of what’s possible for our clients. We take our responsibilities to staff very seriously and strive to be clear in what they are. We know that we need to give our people every opportunity within a stimulating environment to perform at their best, develop their skills and grow in confidence.

The benefits we offer our people are all designed to help them enjoy and appreciate The Media Store experience as best they can and to reflect the value we place on our staff. We understand that the agency business can be very demanding on people’s time and can place further pressure on those around us outside of work – so some of our benefits attempt to ease that pressure from time to time.

Recruitment Process

Our three core recruitment policy tenants are cultural fit, attitude, and aptitude. Whilst knowing your media craft is important for more senior roles, skills can be taught. What we look for is people who align with our vision and values, who have a passion for impeccable client service, continuous improvement, and a can-do attitude.

Our agency has always maintained a diverse representation of people who continue to bring an authentic care factor to our client’s business through collaborative, and honest relationships. We are an equal opportunity employer with people from many cultural and religious backgrounds, are gender and aged balanced and have had extensive experience hiring those with disabilities.

Unlike most recruitment processes, our model flips the traditional. Your first interview will be with the working team, for a more casual chemistry introduction to our agency culture. This is the place where you can ask all those curious questions about the role and what it’s like to work here from those on the ground.

Should you be successful your second (often final) round will be with your reporting Senior Manager and typically the COO (and CEO for SLT roles). This stage is to ensure alignment to our values and vision.
