The Agency for the Senior Account Manager

A well-known creative agency with a global presence; named Top 5 in the Gunn Report, this agency has added plenty of creative awards to its armoury.

The other network agencies offer bland, colourless offices in locations where the creative oxygen is thin and the creative smoulders but does not catch fire – not this one!  They see space as being key to innovation and their renovated offices are a cathedral to creative innovation.

Some of the big networks dish up easily accessible creative like a stand-up comedian who never wants the laughter to die away. It is amiable but not memorable.  This clever agency is never short of brilliant and their ideas sear the retina long after the image has faded.

Agencies that want to succeed need to keep walking towards the sound of gunfire and this agency is unafraid when it comes to risk-taking.  As a result they are riding high and remain one of the top names within the industry.

They are famous for creating genre-bending work and have amassed a cache of valuable awards .
Creative awards play a big part in the success of an agency.  They can attract more innovative accounts and hire big talent off the back of them.  The awarded brand itself can command bigger investment from the client as the client sees it pays dividends to build the brand.

Win, win is what it’s all about and this great agency knows how to mine a winning streak and build on it for the future with great business.  

The agency is a strong believer in socialising and has a lively bar area.


The Senior Account Manager role

A great role for a Senior Account Manager on a premium international FMCG account that has won lots of creative awards over the years.  This great piece of business is the agency’s biggest global client. It is at the heart of the agency and important to them and supported by a great creative team.  

London is the hub for Europe, the Middle East and Africa.  The London agency originates all the advertising, digital and social work for the whole region.  It is a fascinating cultural jigsaw.

The account is interesting and challenging with lots of creative opportunities and a client willing to explore new opportunities and take risks.  There is plenty of exciting stuff being made for which the agency has won a lot of creative awards.

The creative success of the account is due to a backbone of strategic rigour and the cut and thrust of debate with really clever clients and thinking about marketing and brands and communication in the broadest sense.  

The scale and depth of this account beats any other client and, by comparison, anything else can seem pretty parochial and superficial.

The essence of the account is about trying new things, experimentation, keeping ahead of global trends and really understanding what makes people tick in different categories and different parts of the world.

The Senior Account Manager stands to benefit from the fact the agency has a great relationship with their clients based on respect and friendship that has endured and grown over many years.  

Although the client is big and bold, the team is small and friendly offering lots of autonomy.  The account is very much in the limelight offering the Senior Account Manager the chance to get onto senior management’s radar.

The Senior Account Manager will be handling an account that has all the marketing touchpoints.  It is lead by above the line but in addition to plenty of TV there is also cutting edge digital and social media campaigns.

Highlights of the Senior Account Manager role:

  • Joining one of the big names in advertising  
  • Managing a highly awarded creative account
  • Enjoying a senior reporting line with plenty of headroom
  • Flexing your strategic muscles
  • Handling an above the line account that includes TV, press and social media
