In addition, someone who can demonstrate excellence in communications, responsiveness to clients and, above all, a passion for constantly honing their skills.

If you’ve got the experience we need and can demonstrate your ability, we’d love to hear from you. Peppermint also offers additional perks and benefits, including birthdays off, early finish Fridays, healthcare plan, training and cash rewards for going above and beyond day-to-day duties.

We’re looking for:

  • A minimum of 7 years’ agency experience as an AM or SAM
  • Proven account direction skills
  • A positive and nurturing management style
  • People management skills

We offer you excellent salary and benefits, including:

  • The opportunity to work with our impressive and ever-growing roster of clients
  • A supportive, nurturing and fun environment in which colleagues treat each other with mutual respect and warmth
  • One-to-one, personal development plan meetings and training
