You'll be a super star account handler who has really strong client servicing & relationship building, pitching & proposals, event production and project management skills and have previous experience of leading, motivating and managing a small team of more junior account handlers.
You'll have a proven record of working across a range of events, activations, experiential campaigns and one off special projects that involve direct contact with the client and you must have demonstrable experience in strategic account management and client retention and client relationship development.
You'll need outstanding interpersonal skills, must be good at networking and building relationships and should be a creative, tenacious and dynamic individual who can think outside the box and challenge the norm. From a work ethic point of view, you'll relish the challenge of working across a variety of different accounts in a very fast paced and high-energy environment with a vibrant and highly driven team.
Strong IT skills (Microsoft Office and Keynote) are essential and experience of working at a strategic level with big global brands would be hugely advantageous!
