You will have experience/knowledge of:

  • Triage/Ticket Management using JIRA or similar

The Company

The Lead Agency is a performance and technology business that helps companies to acquire new customers.

We use our own digital assets, emerging technologies and a unique network of premium UK publishers to find and engage hard-to-reach in-market consumers as they research their next purchase online. Our proprietary lead technology and in-house contact centre teams then process the data we generate – from initial enquiries through to the secure distribution of qualified leads to our clients’ CRM.

We have been in business since 2002 and specialise in automotive and property. Our extensive client list includes BMW, VW Group, Mercedes-Benz, Ford, Hyundai, Yopa and eMoov.


Ambitious businesses need ambitious people – and that’s exactly what we’re looking for at TLA. Our journey – from a start-up business in 2002 to one of the UK’s fastest-growing tech companies – owes a lot to our focus on continuous improvement and striving to be the best that we can be.

We want to grow with people who share that ethos; who can bring something special to the team but have that desire to keep improving. This role is an exciting opportunity to contribute to an award-winning team and fulfil your potential within a growing business.


  • Award-winning performance and technology business based in Liverpool and London
  • 100-strong team spanning roles in development, design, UX, digital marketing, customer service, quality assurance, product ownership, account management and more.
  • One of the UK and Europe’s fastest-growing tech companies:

    • FT1000 (Financial Times)
  • Fifth-fastest growing tech company in the north of the UK (Tech Nation)
