We're Hiring a Digital Project/Account Manager in Leeds

Leeds-List is a fast-paced, 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 Project/Account Manager to take ownership of the delivery process. We produce content and video campaigns for our clients – you'll be planning them, briefing the creative studio and liaising with clients, just like you would in a digital agency.

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.
