About you:

 

This is an important position within 4CM that will play a crucial role in helping us improve our client services and grow our business.

 

The role therefore requires somebody who has a background in marketing and/or PR, with at least four years’ experience, either gained in-house or working in an agency, preferably B2B.

 

This is a client-facing role.  It therefore requires an individual with excellent people skills, with the ability to form successful business relationships with individuals at all levels within client organisations, and to work proactively with other team members to ensure that client and 4CM’s business goals are met.

 

The successful candidate will need to be able to think strategically and tactically, with an innovative and open-minded outlook, and be confident, ambitious and driven by a desire to help us deliver exceptional service to a growing group of clients.

 

Although formal qualifications are preferred, we are willing to consider applicants who have gained knowledge through their experience in the industry.  Similarly, although the majority of our existing work is with technology clients, we are looking to expand into other market sectors, so are happy to consider applicants from a background in related B2B areas.
