This selection of clients all have six-figure monthly budgets and often operate on a global basis, so there is plenty of opportunity to experiment with campaigns across different regions. This role is the first step to strategic management but will remain hands on in the most part, they have a hands-on ethos so everyone in the business still hands right up to the directors.

All of the assigned have a Growth mindset so they will be constantly pushing for a greater ROI, building strong trustworthy relationships with the clients and act as a consultant and prepared to push back when needed.
