BrandWorks is looking for an Account Manager/Business Development/Marketing Coordinator to join our team of creatives in Abbotsford on a part-time basis.

- Actively engage with work that comes out of the studio
- Assist with execution of the studio’s own marketing and business development campaigns
* We may have another similar, more junior opportunity opening soon too, so if you feel like you might be a tad bit junior but are interested, please apply anyway and we'll keep in you mind for further potential opportunities.

- Good people person
- Self-starter demonstrating good initiative
- Design understanding and appreciation
