Your focus will be on the following:

• Establishing relationships with the key client stakeholders, responding quickly to their requirements and always giving a positive impression of the agency

You will have the gravitas to communicate confidently with clients as well as the agency team. You’ll have excellent written and verbal communication, a ‘can do’ attitude and the ability to work independently.
We are looking for someone with a positive, proactive approach and a high level of self-motivation and ambition. You will be someone who goes the extra mile to ensure delivery against targets.
