Your passion is people. Bottom line. You love working with them, you love watching them grow – and succeeding. You are fiercely organised – you might even unpack and repack your sock drawer at home once a month. Clients love you – and you love them. You strive for perfection and success in everything you do! You don’t get worked up too easily either – and can handle pressure situations calmly and with confidence. You understand the challenges of working with brand ambassadors – and weirdly – you like that too.   You’ll work closely with the broader team to ensure that each activation and event is best in class and hit all the brief objectives. We work in experiential – we preach about face to face two-way conversations so sending emails all day long just isn’t practising what we preach right? So, we get out there and talk to people. We talk until we hate the sound of our voice! You love to talk too – to clients, to colleagues, to partner suppliers – you’re not shy in presenting ideas and having your thoughts heard. Most importantly - you can bring them to life, brilliantly!

You will be managing budgets – both big and small, striving to drive profitability. You will be responsible for the financial control of your promotion’s army – and ensuring that the broader team capture each element of our brilliance – brilliantly. You don’t mind though as you just want to deliver excellent campaigns whomever the client may be!
