About you.

You’re a couple of years into your career, with a strong desire to lay solid foundations for and grow your career in account management and partnerships in an agency environment.

You’re a team player with strong communication and interpersonal skills and are able to demonstrate your ability to build and maintain relationships with clients. You have strong organisational, admin and time management skills, with the ability to prioritise tasks effectively. You’re flexible in your approach to work, which enables you to adapt to changing priorities, work on multiple tasks side-by-side and deliver to deadlines. Above all you have a proven desire to be challenged, to learn and grow beyond this role.

If you have 1-2 years account management experience, and an undergrad degree (or equivalent), as well as experience with putting together professional presentations and/or budget management experience, we’d LOVE to hear from you.
