Account Executive

SHIFT Active Media

Job Description

Are you a marketing intern, graduate or Executive looking for your first or next move? Do you have a knowledge of and a love for cycling? If so, SHIFT Active Media may have the perfect role for you.

We are recruiting for an Account Executive to join our Account Management team; to help build and develop our client relationships and collaborate with our teams to create award winning work. Great communication, organisation skills, and exceptional project management are key skills required for this role.

As an Account Executive, you will work alongside the Account Management team on a wide range of client briefs. You’ll develop good relationships across all departments (creative, PR, Paid Media, Social & SEO) – working closely with Account Managers and Account Directors. You’ll be client facing, curious, and embrace collaboration with multiple partners and stakeholders both internally and externally – to produce campaigns for our range of cycling, triathlon and outdoors clients.

Ideally, you’ll have worked in an agency environment, but your attitude and approach will be what really sets you apart.

Required skills

The Role:

What you’ll bring:

At Account Executive level, we realise you are still learning, so this is as much about your aptitude and general ability, as well as knowledge of marketing. But you’ll need:

Client liaison is a core part of this role so we’re looking for a natural relationship builder with first rate rapport building talents. Personality is really important – we’re looking for an Account Executive who is positive and unflappable, able to handle the fast pace – often with quick turnaround and someone who’s not afraid to ask questions!

It’s the perfect opportunity for an energetic, go-getting person who gets a real buzz out of nurturing client relationships and who is great at getting projects delivered – and loves all things bikes! It’ll be extremely varied and you’ll get to work with clients all over the world, who share the same passion for cycling (in all its forms) like we do.
