  • Account management: Acting as the trusted project manager with a good understanding of appropriate marketing solutions. Taking problems and day-to-day pain away from Clients and keeping their programmes on track. Includes admin tasks where needed such as scheduling meetings, writing up meeting notes, formatting documents, proofreading etc.

Working at Clear:  We’re a small-ish team of bright individuals - finding the right person to join our team is vitally important to us.  Working hours are the normal 9.00am - 5.30pm and we actively promote a culture of leaving on time - of course there are times when high profile projects and tight deadlines require all hands to the pump.

In return we offer a fun and progressive place to work, 25 days holiday plus the period between Christmas and New Year off.

If you're interested in this position then drop us a line with your CV and a covering note explaining why you think you could be right for us.
