Account Executive | Swyddog Gweithredol Cyfrif

The role
The UK’s best small content agency is looking for an ambitious account executive, or senior account executive to join our tightly integrated, highly successful team in Cardiff.

The ideal person will have at least a year’s experience delivering creative, integrated campaigns with excellent results, and is keen to take the next step in their career. We’re looking for a PR pro who’s confident liaising with the media, building relationships with journalists, and knows how to spot a good story.

We work with clients of all different sizes, across a range of sectors, that have one thing in common: they want to make people’s lives better. We’re looking for someone personable, highly organised and creative. The ideal candidate will be confident delivering on client expectations, briefing designers and developers, managing client amends and working with data to tell great stories.

We need a team player who is flexible; self-motivated and able to manage their own workload. We’re looking for someone who recognises the importance of PR in the wider marketing mix, and can come up with ideas that translate into Content and Social campaigns as well as pure PR. We pride ourselves on our investigative and data-driven storytelling, so the ideal candidate will be someone who is interested in this area.

We’re looking for someone who is ambitious and eager to learn. We invest heavily in our team’s professional growth through education, skills training and individual coaching. There’s a generous training budget, to be used both on developing your existing skills and learning entirely new ones. We also pride ourselves on the quality of our work, and anyone who works here is guaranteed to develop a highly impressive CV due to our nationally award-winning work and by working at the only international agency in Wales with opportunities to work across our new Berlin office.
