Burnt out and hit a career ceiling in your current role?

This is an exciting opportunity to join an innovative, winning agency with amazing growth plans which you can be part of. A fantastic work environment, culture and blue chip clients. Based in an idyllic location near Buckingham.

The ideal B2B Account Director or Senior Account Manager will have/be:

Ensure sector expertise across your accounts and also a general knowledge of the PR and communications industry.
Demonstrate an understanding of the key skills your team will use on a daily basis (such as forward features, Gorkana, social media platforms and industry trends, etc.).
