Account Executive 1:1

  • Toronto, ON, Canada
  • Full-time

Company Description

Are you creative-driven? Are you curious and ready to tackle big business problems?

If so, maybe we should talk!

Cossette is a dynamic Canadian marketing communications agency. We have been around for more than 40 years. We have offices in all regions of the country and although we are considered part of the Canadian agency establishment, we’re anything but stuffy. In fact, we are the exact opposite. Cossette has a reputation for being innovative and entrepreneurial. We pride ourselves in our agility, creativity, our currency and a certain kind of edginess. We play hard and we work hard. Perhaps that’s why we previously were named one of the best 50 employers in the country and are currently Strategy’s Agency of the Year, for two consecutive years!

But you don’t need to take our word for it. Come and learn for yourself.
