The primary purpose of the Account Manager (AM) is to delight clients on a daily basis with their ability to make things happen on time, to budget and to a standard that exceeds expectations.

The AM is a key client contact on a day-to-day basis for projects - mainly consisting of offline activity. This will cover a broad spectrum ranging from brand identity, multi channel marketing campaigns including media planning and buying, working on printed collateral from brochures through to customer magazines and more.

Some experience managing digital projects (web sites / email campaigns / digital marketing) would be beneficial, but not essential.

Project management skills are key for an AM with a need to be able to control multi-faceted projects, whilst getting the most of those around them (creative, tech/dev team, finance and other team members).

The AM will be growing their understanding of their client’s business and the marketplace within which it operates. The Account Manager will own specific projects and have strong relationships with day-to-day clients, seeking out creative and financial opportunities for agency growth.

  • Ensure projects or campaigns are delivered on time and to budget, and exceed client expectations at every step of the process.

  • Experience in working with these clients on their marketing strategy, whether that be support with creating a new strategy or reviewing, advising and challenging on existing.
  • Evaluate & measure the success or otherwise of campaigns.
  • Inspire your project team (creative, dev team, client servs) to produce the best that they can to deliver results for the client on each and every project.
  • Develop and demonstrate effective negotiation skills and collaboration skills.
