Are you our next Account Manager?

THE ROLE

We’re looking for a bright, well-rounded and driven Account Manager to join the team. This is ideal for someone who is looking for a new challenge in a busy and demanding agency environment. You will be given real autonomy in your role and the opportunity to grow within the team, and so someone who has a strong work ethic will flourish. You’ll be joining an established team who can offer support and training to help with your development too.

We require that you have a minimum of 3-4 years’ experience working in an agency environment – ideally having experience in delivering integrated creative solutions. Internal communications experience would be a plus.

Ensuring you are the right fit for the team is essential. We are passionate about what we do and how we do it – we are looking for a like-minded person to join the team, so being able to demonstrate the following attributes will be key:

  • be self-motivated, ambitious and demonstrate a real passion for creativity
  • be a problem solver – understanding client challenges in varying situations and developing creative solutions that work
  • demonstrate a real attention to detail – able to prioritise tasks and demonstrate control, enabling the smooth flow of projects, workloads and budgets
  • have experience in coordinating and delivering integrated communication projects – for both brand and campaign work
  • ideally, experience in delivering internal communications
  • excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • able to bring new thinking, ideas and opinions to better our work

WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR IN A NEW TEAM MEMBER:

We are looking for someone who can demonstrate the following:

  • You will need to have experience in client management across a number of accounts. Proven experience in helping shape a solution to meet a client’s challenge, managing the budget, through to the final delivery of a project must be second nature.
  • The ability to take a brief from a client and develop this into a succinct creative brief to inform the development of creative solutions.
  • You should be able to build strong relationships with clients and evidence of this will be crucial.
  • Attention to detail is a huge must in our world. It’s something our clients rely on us for and on which trust is built. Given the level of this role, you will be the project lead and so responsible for maintaining quality levels. A calm and meticulous approach needs to be shown at all times, with strong skills in proof reading and a good grasp of grammar and spelling.
  • An opinion on creative will always be welcomed and listened to – and in your role it will be crucial to balance this with client requests and with what is feasible.
  • You will need to demonstrate an understanding of brand development and campaign creation – covering strategy, brand identity and integrated campaign planning. We have our own approach to this which we will help you understand, but you should already know the fundamentals.
  • A calm and controlled approach to managing multiple projects and requirements for different clients at any one time will be crucial. Planning to deliver great work and meet deadlines will be a daily requirement.
  • You should have experience in presenting creative work to clients and managing their expectations on a day-to-day basis. Whilst virtual communications will be common when liaising with clients, we hold a strong belief in the value of face-to-face meetings.
  • Being commercially astute is key to this role as you will lead on project estimating, invoicing and budgeting across your clients.
  • Competency in Word, Excel, PowerPoint is a must.
  • A degree would be preferable but is not essential, plus showing how other relevant experience can help you to flourish in this role.
