Senior Account Executive (UK)


Type of job: Freelance
Country: England
City: London
Company: SourceCode Communications

Description of the offer

What began in 2017 as an idea on the back of a napkin has quickly become an award-winning, fastest-growing communications firm working with some big-name consumer and B2B technology brands. At SourceCode, we’re focused on bringing brains and hustle, humanity and technology, creativity and business intelligence back to public relations.

SourceCode’s Account Executives are not expected to remain on the sidelines of an account and are required to be active (and opinionated) members of the team. We’re looking for a professional with 1-2 years of experience to become a valued team member and client counselor. We want our Account Executives to be given responsibilities and opportunities to help them grow as professionals. Opportunity is earned and is celebrated across the wider team

About SourceCode

Since inception in 2017, SourceCode Communication’s philosophy has centered on changing technology conversations by injecting humanity, empathy, and an emphasis on storytelling back into technology communications. We believe that if we can make the end user emotionally connect with a brand, we can more effectively change perceptions and behaviour. SourceCode has used this philosophy to fuel its growth into an award-winning communications marketing agency delivering measurable business impact to brands across D2C, Health & Wellness, Consumer Lifestyle, Consumer Technology, Financial Technology, Mobile, Cloud & Telecoms, Insights & Engagement, Analytics, and Enterprise Technology.

What really differentiates SourceCode is the company’s relentless pursuit to uncover and shine a light on meaningful stories that make people think and feel, and we’re proud to have been named a best-in-class agency for our ability to do so. We have been shortlisted by PRovoke for Digital Agency of the Year, named one of America’s Best PR Agencies by Forbes, and honoured at the SABRE Awards North America for PR Agency Citizenship. In 2020, we were PRWeek’s Outstanding Boutique Agency and Best Places to Work, and Adweek named us a top 10 Fastest Growing Agency. The agency also proudly runs the Diversity Marketing Consortium™, a charity using communications to amplify Black-, female-, and other minority-owned businesses.

In September 2023, SourceCode opened its first international office in the UK. We have seen a lot of interest to expand our services into the UK and beyond, and with the opening of the UK office, we are excited to begin our international expansion plans. We have already secured clients in the UK and are building the team to support growth.
