We’re looking for someone who wants to help build and develop the agency, and our relationships in Jersey on a long term basis.

We need someone who is commercially driven, entrepreneurial and accountable. On the one hand, you need to help set the creative agenda, understanding a client’s commercial challenges, while proposing creative ambitions that solve those challenges.

- Take a lead in helping the whole team think entrepreneurially on behalf of our clients
- Take briefs from clients and provide briefings to the creative team
- Take an editorial role over the thought-leadership content we produce
As an agency that’s been around for a few decades, we know that business doesn’t come from cold calls or credentials emails. It’s about relationships new and old where you build a profile and engage on multiple levels.
