Senior Digital Account Manager | London
I actually left the FT just over a year ago after spending nine thoroughly enjoyable years at the company. I like to think that I've now found my way back home, after doing a bit of travelling and working elsewhere. It's great to be back!
As I'm just starting a client-facing advertising sales role, my initial focus is to start to build relationships with my client base and arrange introductory sales meetings.
I have many memorable moments, but the Global Sales Conference in Cardiff stands out. FT sales representatives from UK, US, Europe and Asia came together for a great few days of team work, engaging presentations and entertainment. Another memorable moment was leading the FT football team to their first trophy! Viva FT!
Working here definitely epitomises the 'work hard, play hard' culture. I think it's unique because it's hard to find such a large organisation which has such a warm, family feel to it. Across the business you'll find genuinely lovely people who are talented, friendly, and will often go out of their way to help.
For me it's being able to work with and learn from great people at an iconic brand that represents class, integrity, and produces high-quality content.
Classy, professional and enjoyable
