Account Manager – Halifax

Are you a doer or a dreamer? (Both, we hope.)

You are a doer. A self-starter. A multi-tasking superstar. The ever-organized, ever-efficient link between client and creative team. You make more lists than Santa. You dig for data all the way to China. That’s what doers do. But you’re also a dreamer. A strategist. A smart worker with sharp creative instincts and a passion for advertising that goes way beyond your mega-organized calendar. You’re doing the day-to-day stuff to perfection; and contributing to a team with impeccable client service that helps our clients get results. So, bring us your degree in business or marketing and work experience. We could be dreaming up and doing some pretty wicked stuff together.
