Senior Account Executive


£35000 - £40000 per annum
Ref: 084105786  Date Posted:  27/11/2019
Due to exceptional performance and growth this firm is the corporate and financial communications advisory firm to watch.

Housing a portfolio of leading names across all industry sectors, the client list is both broad and international, but also continuing to get bigger, so there is a need for an exceptional Senior Account Executive to join the team.

The firm offers immense scope for individuals to work diversely across sectors and be involved in large cross border transactions and deep corporate work. The big draw for many is that while some clients might be listed, they don't get involved in the tactical side of financial calendar work! Digital Communications is an area of growth for the firm, so this skills set would be highly valued and utilised!

With 13 offices spanning Europe, the US, Middle East and Asia, this is a truly global firm and a great home for linguists, particularly German speakers.

• Build and maintain client relationships
