Do you actually like to be beside the seaside?

Of course not, you love your lengthy commute, you love the sweaty tube in the summer & avoiding plague-like symptoms in the winter.

Have you thought about working in Brighton?

Brighton isn’t all hacky sacks, avocado smoothies and hipster beards you know.

Okay, there are a lot of hipster beards, however, if you’re looking for a truly life-changing opportunity then this is the place to be.

Yes, the trains are crap, however, you’ll only need them to visit clients who when you tell them where you live/work will look at you all misty-eyed and say things like “ohh, Brighton, that’s my favourite place”.

Brighton (or London by the sea to give it the proper name), is a vibrant, creative and forward-thinking city and now they have Wi-Fi and electricity like the grown-ups in The Smoke, is THE place to be for growing and scaling an agency.

This is where you come in.

We need you to take the reins of an established agency, as the MD/owner moves into a CEO role and a 3 year plan to leave the business in your hands.

This means you will have the autonomy to create, design and implement the business plan, company vision and a marketing and sales strategy to move the business to the next level whilst having a shoulder to lean on, as and when you need it.

We’re not looking for you to sit on the Iron throne and dispatch Ravens with your orders (yes I’ve finally watched GOT), we need you to work with and for your team, whilst being front and centre representing the agency at all opportunities you feel are relevant.

This agency has been delivering live events, incentives and creative communications for over 15 years whose MD has a reputation for straight-talking, supporting and developing a team of 17 whilst building a trusted and respected brand with a diverse client portfolio that brings in revenue of £3m+ PA.

So then, all together now…

“oh I do like to be beside the seaside”
