Ref: 3105

Account Manager

Brief Overview

The greatest roles aren’t necessarily those that offer you the world, lots of wonga or a flash name you can impress your friends with. The best is those that offer you an environment that’s stable & where laugher is commonplace, and support is second nature.

These aren’t the biggest on the planet, but more than hold their own, and have developed an excellent reputation for developing highly innovative work and enviable levels of staff retention.  This agency has changed beyond recognition over the last few years and is keen to hire someone that can get stuck into a mix of campaigns and add value to their continuing success.

The role

The clients are a real mix of consumer & business to business and cover many different sectors & as a key member of the client services team, you will be involved in all stages of project development from brief taking, to market research, concept development, strategy input, execution, and evaluation.

This role has more of a lean towards clients in the FMCG, food & drink sectors & typical projects will range from full re-brands, innovative marketing literature, experiential, packaging, POS, through to online and offline advertising campaigns and cutting-edge digital projects.  You will ensure the provision of excellent standards of service to clients, paving the way for continued growth, expansion, and collaboration.

This role will suit someone who is comfortable developing a deep understanding of clients’ businesses, products, services, and industries to provide strategic guidance and advice.   You’ll also collaborate with internal teams to develop and execute marketing campaigns that meet clients’ objectives and budgets, and develop project plans, timelines, and budgets for each campaign.

What we’re looking for

In essence, you will be the lead creative and guiding light on all creative projects, working very closely with agency teams to generate first class creative ideas and concepts for a range of integrated campaigns.   For this reason, it is necessary to have a sound understanding across all marketing disciplines combined with the necessary committed and passionate approach to your daily duties.

You will also be used to working closely with client services and digital teams to ensure a seamless transition of briefs into the creative domain and they are as clear and inspirational as possible.  Ideally, but this isn’t set in stone, you’ll have at least 3-4 years agency experience under your wing, and it’s preferential you will have a thorough understanding of the wider marketing mix and working with clients in the food & drink space.  Some B2B experience would also be quite handy.

In essence, some roles are all about fit & this is one of them.  They’re a grounded bunch and simply need someone that isn’t precious, happy to muck in, when necessary, but most of all, want to make a positive impact on agency life – and your own career and progression.

What’s on offer

A salary of between £30 – £36,000, hybrid working, plus the opportunity to work for an agency which has changed beyond recognition over the last few years and is continuing to grow and prosper.

In return, you will be working in an environment which positively encourages career and personal development coupled with the opportunity to work on brands which will give your CV kudos and gravitas. The client base & work is as good as anywhere, and would challenge any of the bigger agencies, and no way you’ll get bored.
