To support this growth and ensure that we deliver 100% of our client requirements, we are looking to hire an additional results-focussed Trainee Account Managerto join our team.

We are looking for ambitious, driven individuals who can work in an environment where 100% delivery to the customer is not an aspiration - it is a minimum requirement.

You will need determination, tenacity and the ability to take the initiative and think creatively in order to achieve the results that our clients expect from us. People with a proven record in a sales or other results-focussed environment will be able to transfer those skills to this sector and therefore recruitment experience is NOT essential. Full sector specific training will be provided.

Your achievements as a Trainee Account Managerwill be rewarded with a competitive basic salary, uncapped bonus scheme, and a generous benefits package.
