REF: 2581483JG
We are working with an exciting and growing agency that started about 4 years ago and is blitzing the Sydney scene with an awesome pitch win record and fantastic brand-led work.  Positioned as a creative ideas agency that inspires brand connection and delivers action, they already have a large client based in Melbourne and so are setting up shop in town.

The Work
You'll be managing a portfolio or 2 - 3 accounts across a range of industries (including lots of drinks brands) covering varied work including; consumer activations, trade programs, rewards programs, digital, social, events, retailer / channel activity, shopper marketing, branding & design... a solution to the clients brief that will deliver results! 
You will be part of creating genuinely deep client relationships at a business level, growing your knowledge of the clients business as a whole, not just at a marketing level. But you are not a hands off manager, you still love to roll up your sleeves and manage campaigns, add value at every stage and not simply project manage.
