We’re looking for an experienced, hands-on Account Manager to work within our client services team.

You’ll be offering strategic and consultative advice, spotting new opportunities and staying one step ahead. Once briefed, you’ll communicate the work to the TCC internal teams, ensuring they deliver the work on time, on brief and on budget.

To be considered, you’ll have a creative agency background with experience dealing with clients at all levels.

  • Proactively researching best in class high street activations, from store openings to launch events.
  • Looking out for new opportunities, whilst always staying up to date on competitors.
  • Managing budgets effectively and ensuring a healthy profit margin is always achieved.

Required Skills & Experience:

  • 2 years + experience in delivering high customer service standards at all times in retail, experiential and events.
  • Strong communication skills, in person and over the phone.
  • Ability to work across multiple functions, both collaboratively and independently.
  • Skilled at building and maintaining relationships with clients of all levels.
