Job Description

Here at A&G, we are seeking an Associate to join our Business Development team. 

If you thrive in fast-paced environments, can toggle between different projects, and aren’t afraid of a little chaos, this role might just be perfect for you. We need a hard-working individual who is organized, proactive & collaborative. Someone who’s not afraid to dive into various projects, who efficiently manages their time. But most importantly, we’re looking for someone with a positive attitude. 

Have you ever thought about how advertising and business intersect? Business Development will provide a holistic view of how an agency operates, providing collaboration between departments and across capabilities, so being a people-person is a must. You’ll be working with the Business Development and Executive Leadership team to help sell & grow our agency– not in a sales-ey, cold-calling fashion, but in the following capacity: 

Main Responsibilities:

  • Supporting various new business pitches across industries & verticals from start to finish
  • Responsible for internal briefing documents supporting each pitch opportunity 
  • Supporting agency marketing efforts including (but not limited to) social channel management, outbound marketing initiatives, website management, etc. 
  • Owner of status reports across business development and agency marketing efforts, updating and sharing with the Executive Team on a weekly basis 
  • Responsible for owning internal agency database, which includes agency case studies, employee bios and headshots, and more
  • Will report to the Associate Director of Business Development, with direct exposure to the Executive Level Team 

What would help you successfully accomplish the above:

  • Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing, Communications, Business and/or Advertising 
  • Exposure to New Business or experience at another advertising/marketing agency is ideal
  • Attention to detail– editing and proofing skills are a must 
  • Professionalism and business writing skills are also important
  • Being proactive and nimble is a must– seeking an individual who is able to juggle different projects and deadlines at once
  • Project/time management skills are critical for meeting deadlines and deliverables each week
  • A ‘people-person’ is a plus– this role is extremely collaborative and will require working across departments
