Now Hiring – Account Manager

Careers 
07 January 2020

We’re looking for an Account Manager.

We’ve got big plans. Plans that need someone who knows how to facilitate the perfect output to the brief for us and our clients, can approach challenges with a logical mind, and can strategically guide our clients to the most effective solutions – plus spin all of the other plates whilst doing so!

About us:

We build brands that people actually want (that answer a genuine need) for like-minded, progressive clients of all shapes and sizes. Or – if we see an untapped opportunity – for ourselves. Yup, we create our own brands too.

We know everyone says they’re different but we’ve never done ‘agency’ like everyone else.

This Position:

This is a pivotal role within the agency and you will be a key player in the client services function within the studio. Reporting to the Senior Account Director, you’ll identify opportunities, have a keen focus on business growth and be responsible for the smooth running of projects from a great mix of clients - from global corps to start ups and smaller challenger brands.

You’ll be the driving force of projects in the studio – facilitating everything and steering the output to effectively answer the brief. From kick off client meetings, through to final artwork, you’ll ensure the highest possible standard of service for our clients at all times. This will involve writing briefs, creating timing plans & proposals, managing budgets, reviewing creative, inputting into strategy and building strong relationships with internal teams, clients and suppliers alike.

What we’re looking for:

Ideally, an Account Manager with a few years under your belt and looking for more of a challenge. You’ll have agency experience and be able to demonstrate your ability to work across a varied range of projects for different types of clients.

As a team, we’re pretty close, so we’re looking for someone with the right qualities:

  • – Enthusiasm is a must. We want someone who brings energy by the bucket load to every task and project.
  • – An eye for the bigger picture. You understand the wider objective and the role you play within it.
  • – Someone with empathy who’s able to put themselves in the shoes of our clients and their consumers.
  • – Gumption, initiative, whatever you want to call it – just as long as you’ve got it. We want someone who can hit the ground, take a brief and run with it.
  • – Someone with their finger on the pulse. You’re curious and interested in the wider world – not just your own world.
  • – A relationship builder. You can endear yourself to clients and colleagues alike, building strong bonds based on knowledge and trust.
  • – A ‘do-er’. This role is not for the faint hearted. With nowhere to hide you’ll be at the forefront of the agency, continually adapting and growing with the rest of the team.
  • – Strong commercial focus. A strategic focus and keen commercial awareness are vital. You'll have a demonstrable track record of identifying opportunities with new and existing clients, as well as helping to deliver creative solutions with impressive results.

The nitty gritty:

At the coal face, you’ll perfectly balance the needs of the agency with the needs of our clients. A role that straddles creative flair, strategic nous and organisational prowess. You’ll make sure all our projects are delivered on time, to budget and most importantly to the highest of standards.

Essentials:

This is a full-time position. You will have a minimum of 2 years’ experience in a creative agency. Packaging design experience is essential. Must have a driving licence and be willing to travel when necessary.

What’s in it for you:

  • – £24-28k dependent on experience
  • – Performance related bonus
  • – Personalised progression plan
  • – Social events and beer o’clock every Friday
