Job description

Position: Communications Executive/Junior Client Manager
Salary: Competitive, plus benefits
Location: Hybrid

W&P is the UK’s leading internal communications agency, developing communications and experiences across the whole employee journey.

We’re proud to work with high-profile clients across the globe including Direct Line Group, Legal&General, Halfords, and many others. Based in Leeds and part of Definition Group, we’re now in our 28th year.

We’re a team of designers, photographers, content creators, digital and film experts and client managers, partnering to create innovative solutions for our broad range of clients. Our aim is to positively impact the employee experience within the workplace, driving engagement and helping to develop our clients’ businesses.

We’re looking for a Communications Executive with bags of potential, or a successful Junior Client Manager looking for a new challenge. You must be a strong all-rounder with a proactive mindset, have a hunger to learn and be a real team player.

The ideal candidate will have a minimum of one to two years’ client services experience.

 

The role

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a full-time Communications Executive or Junior Client Manager to join our busy Client Management team.

You’ll work under supervision of a Senior Client Manager and be a support function across the Client Management team, helping to deliver the day to day of client accounts and communications.

You’ll take ownership for administrative tasks associated with the smooth running of client accounts and be proactive in updating and supporting team members with project delivery (e.g. client amends, quality checking, internal admin, organising photography, invoicing, status documents, scheduling work, research, knowledge sharing).

You’ll ensure the highest quality standards and attention to detail are consistently maintained, seamlessly supporting the team throughout the execution of campaigns and projects. You’ll look to build your knowledge of client accounts by having a hunger to learn and get involved, showing the ability to lead on smaller projects and client accounts where appropriate.

You’ll have some experience of agency working and be able to seamlessly multi-task and manage workloads within agreed timings.

You’ll need to have a passion for communication and be confident in your ability to see projects through from start to finish.

You’ll thrive working in a close-knit team and go above and beyond to delight clients. From time-to-time you may need to work hours that aren’t typical, so a flexible approach is needed to get the best from the role.

If you’re passionate about communications and eager to learn more, we’d like to hear from you.
