Are you working in a national sales exec role within FMCG or have worked in a really commercial position and are looking to move into a role that has split creativity rather than pure sales? We are looking for a superstar who may have a couple of years experience in a Sales post within FMCG marketing and wants that creative change.

However you may have realised that you have a real creative flair and that you don't want to do a 100% sales role anymore.
