Due to an increase in client work, we are looking for a motivated Account Executive – the role will be determined on your experience.
Have you worked in community consultation / public communications before? Do you understand local government? Are you a political activist with good party connections? Do you hold, or have you held, elected office, perhaps as a councillor? Is politics in your DNA?
Thorncliffe is a very successful established agency, with 20 years of results and experience in local government / property.
Our team works across a number of high-profile clients and sometimes controversial projects to deliver community and political strategies to achieve planning and local government results.
We’re looking for someone with drive, determination and expertise to help us drive the company forward.
As an Account Executive, you will be a central member of the Thorncliffe team providing high quality servicing to our clients. You may have previous experience in this sector at another agency, or you may have strong political connections. You will also have a good commercial drive.
In this role you will progress your consultancy skills; taking responsibility for the day to day management of client accounts and maintaining positive client relationships, identifying issues which might impact on client activity and actively developing new business ideas and initiatives alongside the senior management team.
You will upward manage senior colleagues to ensure Thorncliffe meets and beats client expectations at every level.
You will have excellent written and verbal communication/presentation skills, be well organised, highly motivated and able to work under your own initiative. You will be a team player with excellent interpersonal skills and the ability to motivate other colleagues. You will have a proven ability to deliver on commitments, plan workloads, identify issues and find solutions.
You will have your own networks within mainstream party political circles which we will encourage you to maintain and expand. You will be educated to a degree level, and have good PC skills. It is an advantage if you have a driving licence.
The role is in our London (Vauxhall) office. Thorncliffe is accredited with Investors in People and has an extensive in-house training programme, designed to ensure you succeed in your role.
We would like the successful candidate to start immediately. We may appoint before the closing date.
Please send a CV to firstname.lastname@example.org, with your CV. We would prefer if you pasted your covering letter into the body of the email.
