Account Manager - Guardian Labs

Here at The Guardian, we believe the open exchange of information, ideas and opinions has the power to change the world for the better.

More people than ever before are reading, watching and listening to Guardian journalism from across the world. Over the past year The Guardian achieved record digital traffic with our highest number of regular readers and monthly page views averaging over 1.1 billion.

In 2019 we hit our highest revenues in a decade and achieved the goal we set three years earlier to break even. We’re now on a path to achieve the goal we announced last month of two million people supporting The Guardian by 2022.

That’s where you come in.

We are recruiting an Account Manager to come on board and help sell branded content solutions across print, online, mobile and emerging platforms.

And, of course, you’ll have a genuine dream to contribute to the Guardian’s future success, and share in our goals and values.
