    Strong Account Executive needed to fill a role on the Barclays Investment Bank account.  Applicants must have at least 2-3 years job experience and operate fully at the AE level. We expect the AE to operate against the following criteria:

    • Meeting preparedness, including material preparation, recaps (verbal & written), and follow-through on next steps
    • Work semi-autonomously, leaning on management for strategic guidance, brand development, and troubleshooting
    • Have a strong mastery of details and the intricacies of a large agency
    • Draft and drive project timelines and manage deliverables
    • Support Account Director with a positive, can-do attitude
    • Begin providing proactive recommendations and action-steps for projects
    • Communicate clearly and concisely with designated clients
    • Serve as Agency Lead for key projects

We expect the AE to keep details straight, understand the impact of timelines, and be flexible to meet a changing landscape – both within the category and related companies/brands. Independent problem-solving is a must.
    • Digital Experienced or Interested– Account includes development of the following digital touchpoints:  web, social, content (written, visual, and video), and multi-platform technologies.  Familiarity with digital mediums and the timing associated with each is helpful.
    • Finance Experience –Ideally, we’re looking for team members who have a real interest in finance, either through work experience or has a personal interest.


    The candidate should have strong communication skills, excellent analytical ability, good interpersonal skills and the ability to work on one’s own with increasingly less direct supervision. Organization and follow-up skills are extremely important.  BA/BS or equivalent degree is required.  Finance or digital-related work experience or internships are a plus.
