Account Coordinator (Remote Eligible)
NJI is a wildly creative and strategically disciplined agency with offices in London, Washington, D.C., and Singapore. We work seamlessly across teams and time zones to align and deliver for our clients.
Managing creativity is an extraordinary idea. Purposefully limitless, it takes a skilled hand to shape and guide the potential of an idea from inception to fruition. This is what we do every day at NJI. We practice our craft in service of ambitious policy-minded clients that seek to influence, persuade or change the dialogue around issues that matter most to them.
We geek out on well written headlines and subtly explosive design executions. We obsess over every breath in a voice over and each line of code we execute. The purposeful use of “we” is emblematic of NJI. We work as a team to support each other and our clients to do amazing, complex things.
Adding a new colleague is a thoughtful and considered process at NJI. The Account Coordinator role we are seeking to fill on our global strategy team is not for the faint of heart. We are seeking a mythical griffin to join our team who possess the rare pairing of talent and heart.
This is a role for someone new to the marketing and communications world who has a strong work ethic and is eager to learn.
The right candidate enjoys problem solving for clients across written and design/dev/media deliverables. As an emerging Account Coordinator, you understand how to work across teams, translating the client’s needs for fellow strategists and then designers, video producers, developers, or other key talent to shepherd a deliverable to success.
You demonstrate a level of EQ alongside your technical knowledge and embody a team-centric ethos of always going the extra mile to support a colleague or client. Due to the global nature of this role, hours can be unpredictable at times, requiring you to work with teams across the world or to facilitate a last-minute request on a Friday afternoon.
This role helps make things happen. It sits at the epicenter across a diverse and bustling portfolio of clients. You must have real world experience successfully supporting projects with complex data/content inputs. The best candidate will seamlessly manage timelines, effortlessly develop relationships, and masterfully generate ideas to support client needs. This position reports to a Sr.
