Job Role: GROUP BUSINESS AND RELATIONSHIP MANAGER
Hype, Demand, and LegacyⓇ is what we create. We’re an agency driven by having a deep understanding of sub-cultures that go on to shape behaviours.
We believe culture comes first and it’s at the heart of everything we do. An agency built to launch, position, and transform businesses in a fast-paced, demanding, and people-powered world.
We work on the belief of valuegraphics, over stereotypical demographics. Truly delving into the wants of humans influenced by culture, data, and insights.
Our network spans across the globe from tastemakers, brands, creators, celebrities, and the people you just need to know to make what seems like an unachievable ambition happen.
Following the promotion of our Business Lead to Head of Agency we’re looking for a Group Business and Relationship Manager to join our team. We’re looking for someone that is a real people person, genuinely curious and eager to solve big challenges.
You will be a natural networker, enjoy building relationships and love all things pop culture. We’re a proactive business, with a clear business growth plan. This person will be key to delivering that day-to-day. From managing inbound enquiries, to creating proactive outreach for businesses that we would love to work with.
This person will need to have a strong understanding of the role culture plays with consumers. This person will have stories to tell. They will have the ability to excite clients. They will have high energy. They will be a confident conversation starter.
You will work across a range of clients from lifestyle, to hospitality, to celebrity, to entertainment. You will be on top of trends, an avid social listener, live for experiences and have a natural get sh*t done attitude.
You will work closely with our delivery teams across hype, demand and legacy, client services and marketing.
You’ll be highly respectful of all communities and culture.
We work with global and household names and we’re incredibly proud of the work we do and the people we work with. Some of our clients include: NOW, BOXPARK, Google, Idris Elba and Popeyes.
We are very much in the business of people at The Fitting Room, we have an exciting People Agenda for the next five years, focused on talent and working in partnership with our team.
We’re not here for big BS statements on the website, we just move with respect for our team and what they might need. For example, when the true extent of the cost of living was revealed, we immediately gave everyone a 5% pay rise.
