Senior Account Manager (Project) – WeAreFearless

Senior Account Manager (Project) – WeAreFearless

WeAreFearless are a new integrated agency specializing in culture, sport and entertainment. Our purpose is to challenge convention to find opportunity and we do this through passionate partnerships, immersive experiences and entertaining content. Our proposition is boldness with backup and we believe that humans don’t act if they don’t care. And no caring, means no sharing. So we wanted to create a new type of agency that solves problems differently. We’ve been working with neuroscientists to take a more human centric and scientific approach to engagement. New tools, new models of engagement, bold new ideas.  More information at wearefearless.com

The Role

WeAreFearless are on the hunt for an exceptional client facing Senior Project/Account Manager to support the GAD to drive best practice project management across an exciting pan European Olympic multi-discipline, multi-market team.

As the role will require a lot of coordination with the client, account service, creative and digital/comms teams, we need someone who has an appreciation of creative minds and the creative process as well as the ability to effectively manage these deliverables and negotiate with the client on their own priorities.
