We need you. Especially if you're an Account Manager. And A-Mazing.

We’re looking for someone pretty special to add to our team. If you’re reading this, you might already know who we are, what we do and what we’re like. If you don’t, we’re Brighton’s biggest creative agency, in the Campaign Top 100 and we’ve got some really nice clients including LV=, Brittany Ferries, Mark Warner, Priority Pass and loads more.

We are all about brand, and you will see our work in action all over the place: on TV, in the press, outdoor and online – just have a look around our site.

If that sounds good, we’re looking for a new Account Manager. You’ll have a few years agency experience under your belt, with a good understanding of the industry, and also have good strategic, presentation, administration and creative skills. The ability to mix a mean cocktail on a Friday afternoon would also be very much appreciated.

If that sounds like you, there’s a more extensive job description below. Send your CV and salary details to miriam.boote@designate.com  as soon as you can and we’ll be in touch.
