Due to the number of clients they work across, they liaise with a number of different creative agencies. It's important that you forge close working relationships with creative agencies and ensure that they are always kept up to date on any plan developments so you will be expected to have strong communication skills.
You will also need to develop strong relationships with their contacts at mediaowners for print, radio and outdoor. Some plans will require a fast turnaround or they will need to make changes to activity at short notice, so having these relationships in place is very important.
