Job Title:  Assistant Account Executive
About Grey:
Two things Grey has been doing since 1917: hiring forceful, energetic innovators with diverse skill sets and points of view who can put ideas into motion that lead to results, and creating famously effective work. That’s no coincidence.
Smart, quick, highly motivated business-savvy people have been the backbone of Grey’s famously effective work for almost a hundred years. They are the drivers of business and creative performance that at this point in Grey’s long history have never better. Our work for DirecTV and Canon has won a total of 11 Cannes Lions in the past two years. Febreze, which won four Lions in that same time, also was awarded four Effies including two global ones. In fact, the agency’s award performance has never been better, and neither has our clients’ businesses; more than 4/5 of them reported positive growth last year. That is Famously Effective at its best.
Of course none of this could have happened without the diverse talent roster we have in place and we are continuing to look for the best talent to join us in 2015. That’s why we continue to need drivers—people who can help move the agency further on the trajectory of success.
