Successful candidate:

You've been on the client servicing journey for a year or three, and are increasingly seen as a person prepared to ask questions and venture beyond your comfort zone. From 'What if?' to 'Why not?', we believe it's only by asking such questions that you'll be able to sit at the heart of how the agency responds to Client needs on a day-to-day basis. As an Account Manager you'll become a client's trusted partner, and start to develop a clear understanding of what turns them off as well as on, and what inspires them. And, via such understanding, you'll start to spark new opportunities designed to make a difference to them, their brand(s), our agency and yourself.
