Rainey's want an Account Exec...

A black cat. You might be working with two of them.

Rainey Kelly have gotten in touch with me, letting me know about a new role for a grad.

So, without further ado, here's the blurb:

"Would you like to work for one of the UK’s top advertising agencies?

We’re currently looking for a bright, sparky individual to join our Account Management department as an Account Executive.

As the UK’s most effective creative agency, we develop multimedia campaigns for some of the country’s biggest brands, including Virgin Atlantic, the BBC, Lloyds TSB and M&S. That includes everything from traditional media like TV right through to the most cutting-edge new media, which makes it a truly exciting place to work. And while we take great pride in what we do, others agree too – as well as being top of the Gunn Report, we are also the only advertising agency ever to win a BAFTA.

The challenges of account management are many, but the main skills you will need as an Account Executive are good organisation, a sharp mind, speedy problem-solving and an ability to think laterally. (Proficiency with a kettle wouldn't go amiss either.) Needless to say, it's also fundamentally important that you are turned on by ads in all their forms, contemporary culture, and finding out what makes people tick.

We’re not looking for a particular type of character, though. One of the best things about rkcr/y&r is the diversity of people who work here, so we like to keep an open mind about who we recruit next.

If you’d like to find out more about us, have a look at our company website:

To apply, please send your CV, a covering letter and a short written response to the below question to

“At RKCR/Y&R we believe that brands need energy to survive. Pick a brand you think currently lacks ‘brand energy’ and tell us what you would do to revive it” (300 words)

Equally, if you have any questions, just drop us a note and we’d be happy to help. We’re looking to hire soon so don’t hesitate to get in touch. Look forward to hearing from you! One other thing – please only apply if you are eligible to work in the UK."

Best of luck with it.

Oops. Sorry about that - the address was written in black text. You should be able to see it now.

Hi Anon.

I presume it's still open. I've heard nothing from the guys to say otherwise..
