Account Executive Apprentice X2

About the role

We’re looking for an Account Executive with a passion for advertising, creative thinking and a desire to learn and grow as part of an award-winning agency.

Key to your role will be supporting our close-knit Client Services team to deliver a wide range of integrated campaigns – from brand development and creative concepts through to video production, digital design and advertising which spans a variety of mediums. You’ll also play a pivotal part in the smooth day-to-day running of the wider agency, managing all our internal office operations. It’s a fast-paced and exciting environment, which means you’ll need to be organised and able to juggle lots of different tasks at once.

Acting as one of the main points of contact to our clients, you’ll attend meetings, take briefs and get to know their business inside-out, making sure we’re always exceeding their expectations.

You’ll help to ensure campaigns are delivered on time by developing project plans, scheduling resource with our creative and studio teams and keeping on top of deadlines.
Participating in brainstorms and reviewing creative will be something you love to do – and your strong attention to detail will ensure high standards are maintained.

In short, your aim will be to earn the respect of your colleagues, partners and clients by being hard working, intelligent and knowledgeable. In return, you’ll enjoy some great employee benefits, including 25 days annual leave and a subsidised gym membership, plus monthly agency nights out and our legendary summer and Christmas parties!
