An experienced Senior Account Manager with Shopper & FMCG/Alcohol experience is needed to join this boutique agency part of a large network.

The Agency

This boutique agency is part of a large network and its remit is twofold: to service their own dedicated clients using multi-channel shopper and activation programmes in both the UK and Europe but also deliver strategic shopper marketing to other clients within the network as part of a truly integrated campaign offering.

The agency is just over three years old and growing. They recognise that the Omnichannel Shopper encounters many points of influence along the path to purchase and their communication/activation shouldn't solely be confined to the physical store. Digital thinking and shortening the path to purchase are therefore at the heart of all their development to create complete shopper marketing plans.

The Role

The Senior Account Manager (SAM) is responsible for managing an account effectively and profitably by planning for and organizing all areas relevant to development and execution of projects. This includes ensuring the smooth day to day running of the account and ensuring great creative ideas are executed professionally and deployed successfully through the brand key markets.

Reporting into and Account Director, the SAM will be given the responsibility to run their own projects whilst supporting the Account Director and Senior Management. They are a growing team so in the future the SAM will be responsible for managing and mentoring a junior member of the team.
