Account Manager
Full Time
Contract Type

We are a consultancy with a difference. An organisation which is always asking how we could do something better, or maybe why do it at all. With the confidence to think big on behalf of others and find ways to achieve really ambitious goals.

We work and think a little differently than a typical agency. How you fit in and feel about working with The Social Kinetic is as important to us as the great work we produce. What makes us different is:

Quality: We will only work on a small number of projects at one time and the aim is quality.

Partnership: we don’t constrain ourselves to tight briefs but focus on the outcome and what it takes to get there

Challenging: We welcome challenge and different perspectives from everyone – in fact we love it. So it’s important you do too.

Respect: you can expect to be treated with respect when you work with us. Why? Because we choose people who are excellent practitioners/experts, you deserve it.
