Account Executives – Corporate
You’ve heard the phrase, old head on young shoulders; it’s a great way to sum up our client. They’ve only been established for a few years but already making a name for themselves and with the team and the client base they have in place, you would think they’d been around a lot longer.
Corporate work, with the rigour of research and insight is at the heart of what they do. This isn’t perhaps game changing but their approach most definitely is. They are moving fast and need bright, curious and hungry people to help them as they ‘grow up’. Currently the need is for AE’s so if you’ve had about 12 months experience and are keen to push the boundaries, this could be ideal.
Real opportunities exist here and not just within the confines of your level. You know what to do. Contact: email@example.com
