Background:

Like many businesses, The Fitting Room has gone through a transition of change in 2020. From being an agency known for storytelling through activations, parties and experiential marketing, we have stepped into a new era. Our thinking and commitment to understanding people, audiences and culture has remained the same but the channels that we use to deliver those messages are sometimes a bit different. We have taken the time to revaluate our agency and make some changes and we are now looking for a Senior Account Manager to join the team.

The Fitting Room started in 2013 by our founder who had £17.22 in the bank when she started and it has been a ride. We are very much an independent agency which has its pros and its cons but the people within the business have always cared deeply about what they deliver and about the business.

We have had a rollercoaster ride from seventeen pounds but we now want to make sure we evolve into the agency we envisioned with all the learnings and the highs we’ve had over the last 7 years.

The role:

This is an exciting role for us to recruit for. Our Founder and Managing Director is looking for her right-hand. This person will be all over everything, clients and new business.

- Obsessive attention to detail

- A love for working with people to deliver excellent results

- Someone really, really, smart

- A real hunger to win

- A proactive and reactive thinker

- Desire to be a part of a vision that is punchy and therefore will bring wins and losses

- A person who can bring energy to a room

- A multi-tasker

You will work alongside our Managing Director and Creative Lead to make sure our clients receive impeccable service and that the work is not only excellent but exceeds expectation. You should not be afraid to challenge, educate and inspire those around you.

- Maintaining and growing relationships with our existing client base

- Working closely on our growth strategy to make sure we are delivering against our annual objectives
