The Agency for the Senior Account Manager  

This is the role for you!

Join a well-known network agency that is currently enjoying a huge creative revival as it gets its mojo back.  

The agency is climbing back up the league tables and is more confident and sure-footed than ever before as it knows what it stands for and is going for it.

The agency has the trust of its clients and what a client portfolio!  This is not a flabby network with a list of chest-beating blue chips but a canny shop with a small agency feel that has attracted an exciting mix of bankable accounts and challenger brands that are brave and smart and have lassoed a good number of creative gongs.

Their new-found confidence has brought in a great management line-up with strong self-belief which means that this is the agency to join if you are looking to get serious about handling truly great creative.  They have done it before and they are about to do it again.  This time make sure you’re at the party.

 

The Senior Account Manager role
A once-in-a-career-time opportunity to launch a new global skincare brand from London that is currently in the development stage and backed by a big name in the beauty industry.

The Senior Account Manager will be in from the very beginning, joining the lead creative agency and helping to develop the brand concept.  The product is still in the development stage and surrounded by secrecy until its big global launch in 2018.  

Opportunities like this, to join a well-known creative agency and take the lead on seeing a product right the way through its marketing cycle from concept development to global launch, are becoming extremely rare as clients are becoming more short-term with their thinking and mainly project based with their delivery.

This is an incredibly exciting role that an ambitious Senior Account Manager should seize with both hands as it will enable you to build your reputation on the back of it and really develop your career.

The Senior Account Manager will be reporting into a Business Director and working closely with a Senior Planner.  Currently the agency is developing the concept for the brand so there are a lot of strategic conversations taking place with the client and it is expected that the Senior Account Manager will be part of this yet confident enough to lead some of these conversations on their own.

The agency is planning to develop some award-wining work and, as it is a new launch into a highly competitive market, the client is expecting the creative to be daring and brave in order to disrupt a crowded sector as the bran will have to plough its own furrow.

Everyone is on board for a meaty challenge and plenty of creative excitement.  

The Senior Account Manager will be working with the London team to develop creative and strategy from the concept stage and nearer the launch date will help develop a global toolkit that will be sent to local markets.  

The team is lean but multifunctional so there is plenty of opportunity for the Senior Account Manager to really shine and get involved with the whole of the marketing mix including TV, cinema, radio, press, digital, social media, events and PR.  

The role would suit a Senior Account Manager who is keen to have a large piece of the pie and take responsibility for the day to day running of the account and touch great creative.

The Senior Account Manager will be handling an exciting launch and have good access to excellent creative resource rather than drowning in layers of process.

The role is ideal for a Senior Account Manager or an experienced Account Manager who is creatively ambitious and keen to hurtle up the career ladder.

  • Joining one of the biggest names in the creative industry  
  • Handling the launch of a new beauty product
