Job Description: Account Executive
Wonderworks Communications is a strategically driven creative agency with a clear vision. We exist to create transformative brand growth fuelled by a little something we call WONDER.
WONDER is intelligent simplicity that elevates brands in the hearts and minds of their audiences. But more than that, its how we think, how we act and how we do.
We are looking for a Wondermaker to join the team and help us continue to deliver great work with great people.

This is a key role within the business. You will be instrumental in supporting the team in the management and delivery of creative projects which reflect the Wonderworks vision and standards.

In return you will be rewarded with wide project exposure and talented people around you to learn from.
You will be keen to take ownership of your work, building strong and trusting relationships with your team and taking pride in representing the agency externally. This role has strong career growth and development potential – so the more you put in, the more you’ll get out!
