jobs description

…Gasp! is on the hunt for an ambitious Account Manager (we call them 'Client Partners' but let's not worry about that right now) to join our team.

This bright and effective client partner will support the team in delivering ‘proper marketing’ made up of robust research, brilliant brand strategy, and 'Creatively Memorable & Boringly Effective™’ marketing executions. Reporting to a Client Director and working with the two founders, they will be able to confidently nurture client relationships, proactively manage all aspects of campaign delivery and supplier relations, take an active role in meetings and bring energy and ideas to everything they do.

We want someone who shares our fearless attitude, is keen to learn, and develop a hands-on role within a highly respected*, growing, marketing agency. Client partnership is our beating heart and we are on a mission to make our team best-in-class; up for it?
