ACCOUNT EXECUTIVE – Temp to Permanent

Excellent attention to detail and very well organised

Well organised and excellent attention to detail. Have we emphasised that enough?!

Professional and very personable. You’re an Account Man/Woman, so you’re the life-and-soul, light-up-the-room, good-company-for-clients-and-team-alike, type.
