Job Description

CURRENTLY HIRING A NEW BUSINESS – ACCOUNT COORDINATOR (Cossette Media)

This is a newly created role at Cossette Media and is a great entry level opportunity for an individual who is passionate about the Advertising industry.

  • Booking meetings & boardrooms
  • Taking notes & putting together contact reports
  • Proofreading decks and making editing revisions
  • Being the go to with ad hoc duties on pitch date for clients and pitch team– such as grabbing coffees, printing handouts, being prepared with back up content, etc.

As amazing as this opportunity is, it is important to note that this is a very demanding role and will require you to work on some weekends and evenings. So please only apply if you are truly comfortable taking on an opportunity that requires this.

Qualifications

  • Ideally a candidate with a College or University Advertising related background
  • Prior Account Management internship experience preferred
  • A highly organized individual with superior project management skills and a strong attention to detail with a strong sense of urgency

  • Strong interpersonal skills with a high level of confidence working with senior leaders
  • Strong communication skills (both written & verbal)
  • Some experience in powerpoint design skills (considered an asset)
  • A highly nimble & flexible individual who is comfortable wearing many hats whenever needed
