My client is a consumer brand and lifestyle consultancy, headed up by two of the industry's most respected and creative figures. The agency has enjoyed an astonishingly few years, winning award after award. It is now looking to find a brilliant Senior Account Executive or Account Manager with a client portfolio of some of the biggest brands in gaming and lifestyle.

A good proportion of the agency's growth has focused on consumer tech and gaming. As such the team is looking for one of the best gaming account handlers out there, with fantastic contacts to match. You must know your stuff and importantly, know the gaming and lifestyle media like the back of your hand.

Whilst the client mix is right out of the top drawer, the other huge attraction is the culture this agency has fostered. It doesn't measure people by how much overtime they do or how much time they spend in the office. It cares about accomplishing great work that people talk about. Instead of a culture of process adherence, it has a culture of creativity and self-discipline, freedom and responsibility.

It also wants want the right candidate to play a part in its future. This is an agency that will always promote from within where possible. People stay there a long time because it genuinely offers tremendous support and career progression.

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 agency 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.
