Account Manager, Advertising, Soho London, £30k - £33k

The Agency for the Account Manager

The advertising industry is currently moving in two different directions: there are the large networks which are re-configuring to form supersize conglomerates and then there are the nifty independents who are stepping up to take their place.

Some giant corporations that are run by procurement departments are happy to have their needs serviced by the advertising superstores whereas others, that still have the marketing department in the driving seat, will want to see what the independents can bring to the table in the way of more innovative thinking.

This is one the new independents that is making a big name for itself with some juicy wins that are splashed across the headlines.

This agency is home to some very clever talent that looks at how strategy and ideas can be choreographed to offer a unique brand experience across the different media channels and address the business challenge.


The Account Manager role

This opportunity is all about moving away from traditional thinking and quite possibly outside your comfort zone.

They key question is whether you have the ability to charter new waters and turn a conventional brand on its head so it’s seen in a different light.

The role is to handle a well-known international FMCG brand that wants to pep up its appeal.  The brand has a strong UK heritage and the account is run from London.   

This is a new win for the agency and the chance for you to be in at the beginning and work with a client who has a quirky sense of humour and a passion to see great creative work.   The agency is the strategic and creative lead on the account and is involved with everything including TV, social media and integrated.

The client’s marketing philosophy dovetails nicely with the agency’s ethos so there is a meeting of minds and the shared objective to be brave and different backed by a good budget.
Being a new start up, the role is quite hands on and you will be doing your  own project management.

  • Joining one of the best independent hotshops in Town
  • Working with some of the industry’s best talent
  • Managing a quirky British brand
  • Getting some fantastic creative work under your belt
  • Having the time of your life!
