Description:

Do you like to jump in feet first? Are you known for keeping many balls in the air, your ducks in a row, a tight ship? Do you dig into projects? If so, we would love to chat with you about our Account Coordinator position.

The Account Coordinator (AC) position will support internal teams on key client projects. An AC is responsible for assisting the management of day-to-day workflow and projects. The AC assists in building vendor and inter-agency relationships. The AC role assists the Account Director (AD) and Group Account Director (GAD) in project management and client communication to gain mastery of the account service role.

In addition to the role within the Client Service department, an AC would interface with the creative and planning/strategy functions in the agency, to ensure client projects and overall client plans meet deadlines and expectations.

How is 88’s Account Coordinator position different? The AC will get a hands-on experience. They’re not fetching coffee or making copies (well, maybe on occasion, but so is the CEO). Our Account Coordinators manage projects, give creative feedback and provide a point of view.
