The Drum
Manchester, UK
3d ago


Our client is a leading marketing communications agency based just outside Manchester centre. With a very strong track record in managing a wide range of marketing campaigns for global b2b businesses, they are now seeking an Account Executive to join the team.

The criteria for this role is quite specific! We're looking for a Science or life sciences graduate. Someone who perhaps went to university and gained a strong degree but then decided that life as a scientist was not for them and they are keen to work in marketing.

At the Account Executive level, you will work within a well established team and you will work across PR, digital, branding and event campaigns for clients who will in the main be scientific, healthcare and pharma related.

We're looking for a graduate who has strong writing skills and who is able to interpret often complex scientific jargon and translate it to everyday language.

The role isn't overly technical and you won't need to be an expert in thermodynamics or to wax lyrical over the complexity of Schrodinger's cat but you will have credibility with clients that a scientific background brings and ideally a bit of an interest in the products and services that they are promoting.

The agency is a long standing one in the North West and they have a proven track record in developing young talent and there will be plenty of opportunities for promotion.

The role is a superb opportunity for a Science graduate who is looking for a route into marketing. If you speak a foreign language fluently (English ideally the first language), then you will have an advantage.

To find out more, please contact Fiona Christian ASAP.
