Contract Type

Our client is a new consumer brand and lifestyle consultancy, headed up by two of the industry's most respected and creative figures. The agency has got off to an astonishingly successful start in its first two years and is now looking to add a talented Account Executive and Senior Account Executive to the team.

The team is looking for bright, dynamic and ambitious operator to play a key role in driving the momentum and growth of the agency and its clients. The key is to find someone with a certain fearlessness when it comes to developing and selling stories coupled with a doggedness and determination to get results on behalf of your clients. The client portfolio is flexible at present with the common denominator being creative lifestyle campaigns.

Every person that the agency hires is an individual – that's part of their charm. That said, there are certain traits that unite the team and that they look for when interviewing:

• A love of the media as well as pride (and excitement) in seeing a story fly
• A willingness to muck in and make things happen
• Bravery when it comes to ideas and to approaching either media, third parties or prospects
• A love of social media, already ingrained into how you operate
• An ability to take the work seriously without taking yourself too seriously
• A sense of fun

Given this is an entrepreneurial startup you'll need to thrive on the challenge of working in a fast paced, nimble business. It's a creative and fun environment but still demands the highest standards.
