October 2011 to Current- Account Manager, Admark Communications
I currently work as an Account Manager at Admark Communications, a full service, boutique advertising agency. My major clients are RMIT University and Etihad stadium who keep me very busy. Due to the nature of working in a small agency I often find myself juggling many jobs at once and am always learning new things. My duties all revolve around managing my accounts on a day to day basis, taking briefs, trafficking jobs through the creative department, presenting to clients, booking media, billings and general administration work. Through my work at Admark I am able to work independently and have formed strong relationships with all of my clients.
