There are many Account Manager roles out there and at times it can be hard to differentiate one from the other. Most of them will be really good stable roles where if you follow processes you will always do well. 

However once in a while a role/agency comes along that’s different. Offers you something more than just a job, giving you that blast of excitement and yet still challenges and reminds you why you got into this industry in the first place. 

If you are looking to be inspired and believe in something different then we have that Account Manager role…. 

Our client is a solid brand activation / sales promotion agency that was founded by two industry leaders who have a reputation for doing things differently and have a proven track record throughout their careers that back this up. 

This is NOT an egotistical agency, they don’t believe in the ivory tower syndrome so big egos need not apply. As a vibrant marketing agency they invest heavily into creativity and strategy and their approach and ideas are designed to shake the markets they operate in, which they do very well. 

They’ve only been around for a few years and already have won some big names under their belt and yet still maintain an incredible pitch win success rate,and feel good environment. 

Its due to this ongoing success that after a large recruitment drive this year that we are now seeking a Account Manager to come on board and work across  core clients. All varying in size. Enough to handle but not enough to drown under…! 

We aren’t looking for a typical Account Manager. This person needs to be a real spark. Enthusiastic, relentless and curious are words you may use to describe yourself. You will take a key role on one of this agency’s flagship fun drinks brand account.  Plus it’s a fantastically creative client with budget to play with.. which lets face it is always nice!  

As an Account Manager you will have a passion for creativity and understand the importance this plays when trying to do things differently in an off the shelf market. 

Be prepared to role your sleeves up and get stuck in. Your leadership team will be hands on and mentor you to early progression. Their leaders are involved, not sitting on the side lines giving motivational speeches. 

You will be used to working on large scale / complex sales promotion campaigns (project management, understanding of T&Cs and promotional process, with a  good knowledge and experience of managing multiple creative / collateral pieces through studio etc.)

Lively, self motivated, ambitious – with bags of initiative as well as high level of attention to detail are words that will best describe you. 

In addition you will be working primarily across a beer account and a soft drinks account – but with some smaller bits of business as well. Variety is the key over there!

And finally try to remember, its also about having fun! So as much as we want you to love the opportunity and feel motivated to come in every day, the environment is relaxed and stimulating and their is defined progression for you here to help you flourish.

In return for your skills as a Account Manager our client offers a generous package ranging between £25-30 plus benefits.
