This highly respected and successful full-service marketing agency is looking for an Account Executive to join their marketing and digital team following a raft of new business wins. This particular agency is based in a superb setting and has a fantastic reputation for staff retention, is filled with talented, creative and passionate people, and can boast a full and varied client list.



The role

You will be given the chance to work on some highly innovative and award winning campaigns and your key function will be to support designated senior account handlers overseeing the design and production of design, advertising and digital campaigns. You will be working across a breadth of marketing, brand related and digital projects, from concept to completion and will include anything from a complete re-brand to mobile sites up to large innovative websites. Additionally, as many of the campaigns are integrated, the role is likely to involve some offline print and creative work. This will also involve liaising internally and externally with clients and colleagues ensuring the highest standards are maintained at all times. By virtue of their work, this is a very interesting and challenging role and will suit someone who is committed to working in an agency and will enjoy the hustle and bustle of handling multiple projects. You will also be involved in presenting ideas and visuals to clients and briefing creative teams at the start of each campaign.



What we're looking for

As an individual, you will ideally have a formal degree, preferably in a marketing or related discipline combined with a solid 9 - 12 months experience within an agency or client side, marketing focused, environment. You will ideally be looking to work in an innovative and fast-paced agency environment and should be hard working, diligent and resilient, plus a genuine interest in all things marketing, both online & offline.



What's on offer?

A salary of up to £18,000 + excellent benefits, as well as the opportunity to develop your personal and professional talents in an agency that will give you responsibility, support, and the chance to work with some very exciting brands and talented people. The agency is committed to the development of their staff which means you will enjoy a long term career - most of their senior account handlers started in junior roles which demonstrates the opportunity for progression.
