For this reason, it is necessary to have a sound understanding across all marketing disciplines which will have been honed in an agency environment. You will be used to working closely with client services and digital teams to ensure a seamless transition of briefs into the creative domain and they are as clear and inspirational as possible. For this reason, it is envisaged you will have put 2 - 3 years under your belt, which may have been in an account handling, project management or production environment, but you must be comfortable, and enjoy dealing with all manner of clients on a daily basis.

What's on offer?

A salary of between of between £24,000 - £28,000 plus the opportunity to work for an agency which has changed beyond recognition over the last few years and is continuing to grow and prosper.
