Job Description

This is a pivotal role in Cirrus as you will be directly contributing to the growth of our organisation by growing positive relationships with clients, helping to develop new business, and working with colleagues across the organisation to create successful solutions.

You’ll manage client relationships by working closely with clients to gain a deep understanding of their organisational culture and goals. In response to specific challenges, you will propose Cirrus solutions that can meet clients’ needs most effectively. This will involve collaborating with colleagues from across our business growth, consulting, digital and creative teams to present innovative solutions, designed to create deep impact.

Through developing this deep understanding and identifying opportunities for new business, you will be responsible for developing revenue across your key accounts. As well as working with existing clients, you will follow up new business leads and attend meetings with new contacts.
