Vacancy – Senior Account Executive, Technology team

March 28, 2022
Performance Comms

Position outline

From the award-winning agency that created the world’s first contactless payment car key, organised a super-car street race in Dubai and imagined the fuel station of the future, we have created an exciting new role for a Senior Account Executive (or experienced AE).

Suitable for someone who is looking for exciting work and seeking a new challenge within the mobility-tech sector. Someone who is passionate about how new mobility solutions are redefining how the world moves. From concept cars and autonomous vehicles to flying machines and the infrastructures that support them.

The role requires a deep curiosity, a can do attitude and a natural ability to simplify the complex. You must know (or at least have a desire to know) your AI from your EV, your gigabit from your gigafactory and your LinkedIn strategy from your last mile solution.

This is a core role within the Performance technology team so we’re looking for a safe pair of hands with a flair for press release writing, strong media relations capabilities and social media nous. Someone with patience, who has experience working in an environment where things move at pace and often change.

In return we promise to provide plenty of responsibility and an environment that will allow you to grow, develop and sharpen your skills. As an agency we may be small, but we pack a big punch. We enjoy working together, solving problems as a team. And we pride ourselves on thinking bigger than ‘traditional PR’, equipping modern day marketers with the insights, skills and toolkits they need to thrive.
