Hi. We’re Skeleton, a video content agency that crafts creative and engaging videos for our clients. We’re a friendly, close-knit team of specialists who believe in continually learning and pushing ourselves.
We help diverse businesses & brands from all over the globe to get the most from video (think Boots, Samsung, and Airbus). Our dream is to become the UK’s most-loved video agency famous for our creativity, technical wizardry, and the amazing results we achieve for our clients.
About the role
We’re looking for an Account Executive to add value to our service offering and build deeper partnerships with our clients. But this isn’t your usual Account Executive role.

An unrivalled level of organisation is expected so that all projects run efficiently, with other team members relying on project organisation in order to meet deadlines and understand client expectations.
You’ll be working in our colourful main office at the University of Nottingham Innovation Park. You'll join Team Skeleton, an ambitious team which is small enough that we all know each other's favourite songs but big enough to allow you to cultivate your own unique skill set.
