You will be based in their impressive Head Office in Nottinghamshire, but required to travel weekly to clients’ locations. While this is a full-time role, you will need a flexible approach to meet the demands of several fast paced accounts. Ideally, you will have two to three years’ experience in a similar role and strong print production knowledge.

  • Consultative print expertise and ability to offer solutions, by working through problems and taking the pressure off our client stakeholders
  • Ensuring all work is delivered on time to a high standard and to the correct specifications
  • Excellent computer literacy skills for managing data from Excel and other programs
  • Work collaboratively with internal colleagues from our in-house creative agency to execute creative briefs

About you:

  • Account management experience on retail or food service (hospitality) accounts, preferably on site with clients
  • Management of marketing briefs from concept to distribution with multiple agencies
  • Experience of working on complex accounts with multiple stakeholders
  • Knowledge or appreciation of the world of print and production basics, including design, artwork, print, fulfilment, distribution, etc. (although there is no need to be a technical expert)
