Account Manager, Creative Agency, Central London £28k - £33k

What’s the Creative Agency like for the Account Manager?  

All agencies are not the same!  There’s an odd misconception about what is the right size agency for a brand.  This agency hits the sweet spot.   

It is a good sized agency with an independent feel and a friendly culture that has realised its creative ambition without losing its special character.  It isn’t afraid to ruffle feathers and is adept at snatching business out of the jaws of the bigger networks which are brasher but less thoughtful.  

They have managed to bag several sought-after accounts thanks to the fact that their clients give them some of the highest referral ratings in the industry.  The standard of work is high and keeps improving – a lot of it pretty surreal!  

If you are cooped up in a sterile office feeling as if you have joined a bank rather than Adland, then this quirky agency with its outlandish offices and surreal work will help you get your mojo back!  

Formally recognised as being one of the best employers in Adland, this agency seems to weave magic into the industry and is modest enough not to shout about itself but let others do it for them. 

Their investment in talent has paid off and their work is backed by sharp writing and great creative innovation. 

The agency is incredibly friendly with a good social side and one of the best bars in London!  

 

The Account Manager role

Pitchtastic is where it’s at!  The agency has been wooing and dating and is now bedding some new business.

They are currently recruiting for a new business win and would like to meet an Account Manager with some retail experience who is integrated.  

The Account Manager will be handling a new retail win that is looking to shake up the sector.

This is a brand to have some fun with; the client is gutsy and friendly making the account punchy with plenty of creative stimulus leading to quirky ideas 

All the elements are here for great work.

The account is incredibly exciting as the key players shrug off the straitjacket of the sector and look to be much braver.

This client has decided to plough its own furrow rather than doing “me too” campaigns.  As a result the work is innovative and engaging with the Creative Department keen to take a hand in making a difference.

The Account Manager will be handling some blistering creative and getting involved with an account that is set to go on the Awards trail.

There is a great mix of work on the account that includes TV, radio, OOH digital and social media.

The Account Manager will have a lot of autonomy as there is a senior reporting line and it is a great role for an Account Manager who is looking for more headroom and to gain recognition.  

Teams are kept deliberately lean to ensure there is plenty of exposure and there are big gaps between the levels to ensure there is space and autonomy. However, although teams are lean, they are not skinny(!) and the agency is renowned for its supportive environment and nurturing culture.

So, this is not to be confused with the sweatshop mentality of under-resourced agencies where lean teams mean late nights!  This agency is mindful in its approach and keen to put its workforce first; there is a great work/life balance: account handlers regularly take a lunch break and socialise together in addition to getting away on time.  
 
The agency is officially one of the “happiest places” to work in the industry.  They are excellent at mentoring and ensuring that there is on-going feedback so that everyone feels stimulated and has the right stretch.  

The agency has a great culture and vibe with live gigs, craft and mindfulness courses and its own in-house beer!
