Account Executive

  • Full-time

Company Description

There is no substitute for a big, different, organising idea. An idea that disrupts. An idea that moves you. And an idea that zags when the world zigs. It enhances the value of the brand, and it grows our clients’ business.

And today, advertising is just one way to communicate an idea. Today a brand is only as strong as its weakest touchpoint. That’s why we apply the same level of BBH thinking, the same amount of care, craft and creative magic to the entire customer experience. We do this to create not just a connected and consistent customer journey, but an extraordinary one.  

In practice, in the direct arm of BBH, this means we help our clients attract new customers, convert more customers and grow the value of existing customers.

We like to work with people who are different. Our enduring commitment to difference is best embodied by The Black Sheep. It represents our businesses, our culture and the people who work here.

Job Description


BBH Account Management is a special breed. Whilst our role is like that of other account handlers - understanding and partnering on our client business, setting the vision, creating the energy for teams, and making sure it all happens - a BBH Account Handler brings something extra.

We believe in the power of difference. We understand the value of difference in building brands, and we understand how thinking, operating, communicating, and selling differently leads to growth; for our clients, for BBH, and for ourselves.

We are one department, but we bring many different skills, experiences, and perspectives. We encourage and celebrate that difference. The richness of diversity; not just of specialist skills, but of different attitudes, individual leadership styles, ways of working and life experiences. It is our strongest asset.

What unites us all is our shared sense of ambition, our dedication to quality, our unwavering support of each other, our commitment to creating an inclusive culture, and our passion for delivering world-class creative work that creates commercial and cultural value.


Account Executives (AE) are the foundations of our account management teams. They are the GLUE. As an AE you are the person the team looks to get stuff sorted. To get everyone in the right place at the right time. Know what is going on and be one step ahead. A BBH AE exudes passion, excitement and energy. You are hungry to learn from those around you, operating as a sponge, learning everything you can at every interaction. You take on all tasks, big and small with gusto.
