Account Manager

The recent acquisition of new television networks has opened an opportunity for an Account Manager to join the team. 


The role is to manage key accounts and drive commercial revenue.

Next time you turn on your television to watch the news, download your favourite episode on your set top box, or stream that must-see programme to your iPhone, pause and ask yourself, how does that content get to my device?


Well, that is what we do. We are the ones behind the scenes. We are the invisible pipe. We work 24/7 on behalf of big brand television channels and help deliver their content to your favourite device, through satellite, broadcast, internet and apps.


We recruit smart individuals, give them the best training available and look after them well. They in turn become heroes of our business by looking after our customers with passion, dedication and integrity.
