If you’re the ‘chief’ or ‘chief creative officer’ for a media agency, you’re responsible for creating the advertising campaign and its creative materials.
If you’re the ‘head of digital’ for a digital agency, you’re in charge of overseeing digital advertising campaigns across all channels.
If you’re the ‘head of public affairs and communications’ for a PR firm, you’re responsible for creating communications materials for a range of brand and government clients.
If you’re a ‘head of television’ for the television industry, you’re in charge of a TV advertising campaign for a range of brands.
If you’re in charge of the TV advertising budget, you’re likely to be part of a group that oversees all of the TV advertising campaign planning and budgeting.
You’ll also be involved in the overall strategy and direction of the TV advertising campaign. So if someone in this role is making a big decision about how the TV advertising campaign will look and be, then they’re likely to be involved in that process.
