You will be comfortable speaking with and building strong relationships with your team, clients, suppliers and the media. 

Working with the account team,  you will implement hard working press offices, draft social media and blog content, work to set communications plans, research for campaign proposals, contribute to new business proposals and provide robust analysis.

At Jam, we develop integrated campaigns that work across multiple channels to support our clients’ business objectives. We’re big on creative campaign ideas and data driven content that packs a punch.
