At YunoJuno our mission is to unlock the true potential of Freelance.
Working trends are changing and YunoJuno is at the forefront of enabling the future of work for highly skilled, professional Freelancers in the Creative and Technology sectors. You can see the types of work that our Freelancer Community complete in this video and access a list of the disciplines where we provide Freelance solutions via this link.
Our business was started by three founders who were frustrated by a broken system when they were trying to hire professional creative and tech Freelancers. Rather than sit back and watch a failing system that was neither Freelancer or Client-centric, they established YunoJuno in 2012 and have witnessed unparalleled success - turnover has doubled every year since inception and, in 2018 YunoJuno reached the £100 million turnover landmark. Throughout this period YunoJuno has acquired an incredibly impressive roster of clients including ASOS, Google, Sky, Ogilvy, Virgin, R/GA, WeWork, IBM, M&C Saatchi, Deloitte Digital, Secret Escapes, AKQA, Uber, WPP, Ted Baker & Pernod Ricard.
With a talent network of over 14,000 carefully curated Freelancers, YunoJuno supply thousands of professional, on-site Freelancers to market-leading, game-changing and innovating London businesses like those mentioned above every month.

About the Marketplace Account Executive role:
We are looking to recruit for a new position of Marketplace Account Executive.
In this role you will be responsible for providing the initial demonstrations of the YunoJuno value proposition and platform via online meetings with clients from a variety of sectors including Global Brands/Enterprises, Tech Start-Ups, Management Consultants and Advertising Agencies. Examples of the types of businesses that we work with are in the ‘about YunoJuno’ overview above.
In winning these new clients a high proportion of meetings will be booked for you, but some self-generation will be expected. You will be responsible for getting the prospective clients to the stage of posting their first Freelancer Brief on the YunoJuno platform and then facilitating a successful transition to our YJ Talent and Platform Success teams for ongoing customer management.
To be a success in this role, you will be a collaborative and consultative sales professional, who is able to effectively understand differing client needs and perspectives and provide optimal solutions that meet the requirements of your prospective clients. Whilst not essential, knowledge of the Advertising / Creative / Tech industries would be highly advantageous.
You will be comfortable engaging with, and proving value to, prospective customers in a diverse range of functions which could include a CEO/MD at an independent agency, Procurement or HR functions, Studio Managers or Creative Directors. Given that this position handles many of our most urgent leads, this is an office-based role, with potential for home office/flexible working once you are established. The successful candidate will, therefore, need to be highly organised, responsive, achievement oriented and, most important of all, someone who creates trust through delivering all of their promises to optimise the experience for our clients and Freelancers.
Our modern, open plan office is based just 5 minutes walk from London Bridge Station, and we have plans in place to move to upgraded premises in Soho during the summer of 2019.
We provide a choice of MacBook or PC laptop, Pension, Private Healthcare, Cycle to Work Scheme, Free Snacks/Drinks, Ongoing Training and regular Social Events.
If this sounds like a great fit, we would love to hear from you!
