Set it in the heart of Manchester, this incredible agency, known for sublime creativity & innovation has been working with an enviable number of brands for some time. Their cultured approach to delivering work that captures the heart & mind is a primary reason they’ve grown even more & now seek an Account Manager who will be responsible for managing the marketing requirements of their key brand focused clients.
You’ll bring big ideas, craft, leadership skills, and diplomacy together to help guide your team and make it the best it can possibly be. The leaders of this agency are hands-off in style, so you’ll have plenty of scope and rope, but at the same time need someone that they can entrust with the commercial side of the role and that can be the lead figure on all new and existing projects. The people around you are experienced agency practitioners, across the disciplines of digital and creative, but they are all hands-on and want someone who is happy to integrate as much as humanly possible, and not be too fussed by title and seniority.
The clients are predominantly consumer brands and cover different sectors as do their requirements – typical projects include all forms of high end design and advertising through to experiential, packaging and cutting edge digital. A fair proportion of this role will be focused on some extremely creative methods of marketing communications alongside digital media. Needless to say, you will be managing costs & time scales across for an array of very interesting projects, which will require finely honed client handling. You will also have the opportunity to guide and mentor a small team of execs which will add value to your skillset and personal development.
What we’re looking for
In essence, you will thrive in an environment where creativity is paramount & you will enjoy being the guiding light on a raft of different projects. For this reason, it is necessary to have a wide understanding across most marketing disciplines combined with the necessary committed and passionate approach to your daily duties. You will be used to working closely with client services, clients and creative teams to ensure a seamless transition of briefs into the creative domain and they are as clear and inspirational as possible. You will also be confident presenting your ideas internally and enjoy the challenge of working on projects that require guile & thought.
What’s on offer?
The pedigree of this agency is first class; they’ve maintained an enviable level of growth as well as an excellent level of staff retention, which is helped by a non-hierarchical approach to fulfilling the marketing requirements of their clients. It has changed beyond recognition over the last few years and is keen to hire a forward thinking account manager who is moving up the ranks and can add value to their continuing success. In return, you will be working in an environment which positively encourages development coupled with the opportunity to work on brands which will give your CV kudos and gravitas.
