This is an opportunity to join a mid-sized, vibrant, and entrepreneurially-led, fully integrated agency based on the outskirts of Manchester.
As a key member of the client services team, you will be involved in every aspect of your clients’ marketing and communications strategy in conjunction with other members of the account management, digital and creative teams. Your main responsibility will be to manage the day-to-day relationships with clients of the agency, by providing a highly responsive and quality service and developing robust, profitable client relationships. You will actively develop insightful brand strategies that set the foundation to build the most compelling interactions for their clients, and will be involved in all stages of project development from taking briefs and conducting market research, to developing concepts, strategic planning input, copywriting, execution and evaluation. You will also be expected to identify and participate in initiatives to help to drive new business and client organic growth. Similarly, you will have direct line management responsibility for more junior members of the account management team, and play a part in actively growing their abilities and skills, through formal/informal training programs, mentorship and hands-on learning.
What we’re looking for
It is essential you have B2B marketing experience, with a minimum of 4 – 5 years’ experience working within an agency or business-to-business in-house marketing environment. Skills and experience are important, but they place equal importance on personality, attitude and cultural fit within this agency. A seasoned account handler, you’ll be a commensurate professional and self-starter, that’s passionate about marketing, best practice and technologies. A serious thinker with an enquiring mind you’ll be thirsty for new knowledge, and importantly, happy to share this around the team. Ambitious and driven, you’ll also be happy to roll your sleeves up and get stuck in as needed. You’ll be a genuine people person who enjoys supporting others and seeing junior members of the team thrive and develop under your guidance. Lastly, a good sense of humour and a fun attitude to life is essential!
What’s on offer?
A salary of between £32,000 – £35,000 + benefits as well as structured training and a development plan to help you progress to Account Director as soon as you are ready to take this on, as well as on-the-job and formal training support depending on your needs (examples include advanced people management skills, commercial skills, planning etc.). We have a great insight into the culture of the agency, so for a better insight, please call Samantha on 0161 425 7352 or email your details.Apply for role
