Client Manager - Temp to perm

Earnest is an agency with a mission to chase out the humdrum in B2B marketing.Since we opened for business in 2009, we've built brands, shaped strategies, produced content programmes, created experiences and developed campaigns that not only deliver results, but engage and delight their audiences too.What's it all about?At any one time you'll be supporting the team in meeting (and exceeding), the expectations of at least one of our largest clients, as well as working on one or two smaller projects.
