Are you our next
Account Manager?

(Event experience required)

JK is looking for a skilled account manager with experience in corporate/employee events. You should be an adept communicator, an active listener, and an open-minded collaborator who’s always up for a challenge.

We’re a midsize agency in the heart of NJ, with creative and strategic capabilities that rival the big NYC shops. We’re all about making connections: to our clients, to the people that matter to them, and to each other (even while we’re working from home).

If this sounds like the right fit for you, you might be the right fit for us!

A strategic mindset and a drive to make and build strong client partnerships is a must. You’ll work with our account team leads—as well as clients and vendors—on a variety of internal communications and other initiatives, as well as live and hybrid/virtual events. That means keeping an eagle eye on client needs and project details and addressing emerging issues before they impact project quality.
