Account Strategist

Job description

Further are recruiting again, and this time we are seeking an Account Strategist with an inquiring mind. 


Could this be you?

 

Joining Further means joining a team who love what they do and have a damn good time doing it. 

Agency life can be fast-paced so at Further we also take the time to let off steam, going out together one Friday every month. All of us are enrolled in the Health Shield cashback scheme to ensure we are taking care of our well-being, because we know there is life outside of work. We also allow flexible working hours and give everyone their birthday off.  

 

Where are we based?

 

Our office is in the heart of Norwich in the newly refurbished St George's Works, which is a creative and media agency hub with a rooftop terrace that overlooks the city.

You will be commercially astute, have solid marketing foundations, and an interest in, or knowledge of, digital marketing techniques.

Working across key client accounts and supporting new business proposals, you will be a lynch-pin in the agency, working closely with the Head of Account Strategy to drive innovation and growth for our clients.
