You’ll need to be proactive, intelligent and multi-talented to succeed in this demanding role. You’ll be briefing all the key disciplines in the agency, reviewing work and presenting confidently at interagency meetings. Not only will you be driving projects forward, you’ll be actively identifying opportunities to grow the account and planning to avoid problems ahead.

You’ll have:

  • Proven ability to plan and deliver to fixed deadlines.
  • A thorough, detailed understanding of data, data processes and the print production process (checking of data dumps, laser proofs etc.)
  • Exceptional attention to detail.
  • Strong communication and interpersonal skills.
  • Ability to understand the detail but see the bigger picture.
