Senior Account Executive - Marketing

Opportunity Knocks for an Ambitious Account Exec or Senior Account Executive!

Our client is a well established, award winning, full spectrum agency.

Their clients are some of the world’s biggest brands and campaigns are ongoing and growing. 

They now require a talented individual to join the team and support the AM’s and AD’s.

This position would suit a confident AE who’s ready for the next step up or an SAE who wants more exposure, influence and responsibility.

Projects are currently mainly B2B and offline, so experience with a range of media channels in this space is essential. However, this is expected to change so the opportunity to learn more about digital, if you don’t have that experience already, will be there.

You must be an excellent relationship builder as you’ll be managing projects quite independently at times and thrive on being busy and the autonomy that the work offers.

On offer is a competitive salary in the region of £21,000 - £24,000 p.a. with flexible working opportunities and a real career path.

When times are tough it’s time to step forward and build for the future. This could be yours!

About Our Client

Based in the heart of vibrant Bristol, just outside of the city centre, our client is a long-standing, over 40 years, and highly respected creative agency. They have an exceptional client base with a truly international flavour spread across Europe, USA, Middle East and Asia and regularly win awards.

A full-spectrum agency, they offer a range of on and offline services in design and marketing, from strategy, campaigns and lead generation, to brand building, events, product communications and web builds. 

They are proud to be an independent, dynamic and friendly company that really takes care of its staff, offering exciting challenges and room to thrive, with plenty of entertainment and laughter while you do it.

  • Creating detailed and accurate contact reports, estimates, timing plans and other client documentation, as required.

  • Following quality assurance and operational processes.
