What’s it all about…
Account Managers at Global are all about selling great ideas to new and existing clients, helping them stand out in their marketplace and grow their business.
What you’ll be doing…
You’ll know your local market, so will be spotting opportunities and generating appointments to win new business.
You'll identify the real needs of each client and will come up with ideas to grow their business using the great tools and insight we give you.
Understanding your clients is critical for you to develop long-term relationships to keep them coming back.
You’ll work with a great back up team, putting together creative pitches using the latest technology to wow your clients with the full range of our products from on air and online ads to sponsorships and promotions.
It’ll then be down to you to negotiate the right deal for both the client and us.
And finally you’ll get the campaign up and running with support from the team.

But it’s more than just pay…
- A car to get around to see your clients, and a fully customisable benefits package.
- 25 days’ holiday which increases the longer you stay with us, plus of course, all the public holidays.
- Flex benefits including buying and selling holiday, childcare vouchers and discount deals.
- The latest technology will be at your fingertips, so a MacBook and Iphone the use of salesforce.com and loads of training too.
