Leeds-List: The Best & Most Insightful Guide to Leeds

We're Hiring a Digital Account Executive in Leeds

Leeds-List is a fast-growing media brand with an agency-led approach. We’re not like other publications – we put the reader first, we focus on response and we help our clients get results. Over the last 12 months, we’ve doubled the size of our team, and we’re only just getting started.

We’re now looking for a Digital Account Executive to help us deliver campaigns for our clients. Working with our internal studio, you’ll help to plan, brief and deliver these campaigns, just like you would in a digital agency. And because we’re growing so fast, you’ll have the chance to progress your career at a rapid pace.

As our Account Executive, you’ll be integral to the delivery process. You’ll make sure every campaign comes together on time and on budget, but more than that, you’ll help us exceed client expectations and build relationships.

You’ll need to hit the ground running, because we have an ever-growing client list that includes LNER, Opera North and D&D London, but you’ll be working with a team that achieves industry-leading results, with an average time on page of 02:31.
