  • Respect for client and company confidentiality.
  • An understanding of creative processes – whatever the media and channel.
  • Ability to analyse data and interpret facts and figures presented in the form of statistical tables and diagrams.
  • A comprehension of how the agency business works – from generating income and maximising profits to controlling costs.
  • Proficiency in MS Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook.
  • Ability to use both PC and Mac OS-X operating systems.

You must be:

  • A real team player, contributing to best practice and sharing knowledge, resources and ideas, but comfortable working alone when required.
  • Committed. We’ll want you to build strong and lasting relationships with our clients, while developing a long and successful career in the longer term.
  • Practical and level-headed with the ability to manage multiple projects at once and to react quickly when needed.
  • A critical thinker with an eagle eye when it comes to detail and error spotting -regular proof checking is required.
  • Marketing savvy, both on and offline.
  • Hungry to progress and develop.
  • Punctual and professional.
  • Positive and enthusiastic.
  • A good people manager – you will be liaising daily with our creative studio in the delivery of your projects.
  • Hardworking and flexible with a willingness to work outside ‘normal’ hours when required. (This isn’t a regular thing, never fear, but it can happen every so often.)
