Now hiring: Account Executive
Join a winning team
Platform Communications is a rapidly growing, independently-owned B2B technology agency. We work with brands that shape our everyday lives – from “prop-tech” that makes it easier to buy a house to companies that enable live news, sports, and entertainment leaders – like the BBC, Sky, FIFA, and NBA – to keep the world entertained, informed, and connected.
We are proud of our friendly, collegiate team culture and offer excellent work-life balance.
As we continue to grow, we are looking for an Account Executive with around a year’s experience (or previous work placement) to join us, with an eye on taking the next step in their career. For the right candidate, this can be a fast-track route to SAE.
The successful candidate will have the chance to develop their abilities in an environment that offers excellent on-the-job training and mentoring. You’ll be working with a senior management team that includes the previous head of Fleishmann Hillard Tech, senior director of Weber Shandwick’s Technology and division head at Hotwire. Collectively, they’ve led global campaigns for clients including Microsoft, Symantec, Qualcomm, Verizon, EA, Sonos and many more.
