James Herbert

Account Manager

What do you do?

I make sure the writers have everything they need to do their job and maximise their creative talents. I liaise with our clients, deal with the dosh, and juggle appointments in the diary.

Why do you do it?

It’s an incredible working environment, where everyone pushes each other to learn more each day. It’s fun, inspiring, and we have Yorkshire Tea.

Which projects have you worked on?

I’ve worked on a number of projects, across a range of sectors, with some fantastic clients. Accenture, Royal Mail, SAUL and KPMG to name a few.

Which project are you most proud of?

That’s like trying to choose your favourite child. Not that I have any children. But if I did, I imagine it would be a similar decision.

What do you like to do when you’re not at work?

I love Sudoku. Give me a coffee and a Sudoku and I’m happy. If I’m not messing around with those nine numbers, then I’ll probably be playing sport. Football, tennis, golf… anything I can play socially.

How long has it taken you to write this?

It’s taken 57.5 hours, 8 drafts, and 6 weeks of sleepless nights to put this together.
