Full Time
This well-established and successful full service marketing agency in Billingshurst, West Sussex, is looking for an experienced individual to work within the existing team and take on the role of Senior AM. With clients ranging from shopping centres to event venues, pet shops to vet surgeries and financial services to construction, a career at this company is fast-paced and varied, and there's never a dull moment!

Working alongside an Account Executive you will be responsible for a number of tasks including (not an exhaustive list):
- Creating media proposals and schedules for clients
- Researching marketing opportunities to fulfil a client's objectives
- Liaising with the in-house design studio to deliver artwork to brief
- Researching, booking and attending events

- Producing client reports
- Raising purchase orders and invoices
- Ensuring marketing campaigns remain on budget
- Development and updating of personal knowledge of clients' products and services
- Dealing with enquiries from media connections
- Managing an Account Executive
- Additional ad hoc administrative tasks

One minute you could be organising for a shopping centre event to take place or researching details and budgets for a national advertising campaign, and the next you could be liaising with a printing company for the production of corporate collateral - no two days are ever the same.

The successful candidate will be able to perform well under pressure, hit deadlines and targets, work under their own initiative, be dynamic, hard-working and possess maturity common sense.

- possess excellent attention to detail
- are confident at speaking to members of the public, suppliers and clients
- are well presented
- are prepared to 'muck in' with whatever task is required to get the job done!
- have a full and valid driving licence due to the head office's semi-rural location and the fact you may be required to attend off-site meetings (pool car provided)
- work well in a team as well as under your own steam
- have strong verbal, numerical and written skills with an eye for detail
- are results-focused
- are flexible and willing to work across a number of different projects simultaneously

What they will do for you???
- Give you a job you will love
- Never make you clock watch again
- Make you laugh every day

And the serious bit:

This is an incredible opportunity to enter the world of a vibrant full service agency.
