Do you have a curious thirst for insight and craving for creativity? Do you enjoy going toe-to-toe with clients to deliver marketing campaigns that consumers actually notice, and brands and innovations that they actually want in their lives?
We’re looking for a passionate and self-starting Account Manager to join our award-winning creative and research agency, and growing team.
You’d be managing a great mix of clients, including Financial Services, food and drinks.
What we’re looking for:

- Commercial and entrepreneurial spirit to help grow existing clients, support pitches to new ones and meet account team targets, working closely with the Senior Account Director
- An innovative and agile thinker, able to challenge ways of doing things, sparking off latest trends and formats, and pushing to test and optimise to ensure we make great from our clients’ budgets
- A stickler for detail and best practice, always excelling at client service levels, following and helping to optimise agency process
What you can expect from us:
We strive to attract and grow great people as well as great clients, offering:
- Great holidays: 25 days’ a year, plus 6 public holidays, the full week off between Christmas and 2nd January (we take merriness seriously…) and an extra day’s holiday for every year you’re with us.
