Account Manager, Creative Agency, Central London, £28k - £37k

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

This is a new breed of independent creative agency.  It understands that we are living in the “audience” age and that brands need to leave a cultural footprint.

The agency is constantly seeking to move the conversation forward whilst understanding the restless spirit of the consumer who will only talk about a brand on their terms.

This agency brings together diverse talents from the world of film, music, publishing, PR, branding, advertising and production to make the right audience moments and create a cultural connection with the brand.

The agency is a great success story!

There is a strong “family feel” and a friendly culture but it is driven and hungry too with a huge emphasis on creativity.

Entrepreneurs thrive here.  

A lot of talented account handlers have deserted the big name agencies to come here because they feel inspired by the fresh creative and like the entrepreneurial feel, lean-forwards approach and can-do attitude of the Senior Planners and impetuous Creatives in this flat structured environment.


The Account Manager role

An Account Manager with a can-do approach and a passion for great creative will do extremely well here.  If you like to lean forwards with your elbows out and work closely with Senior Management on talked about work, then this is a great opportunity for you.

The agency wants to further build on its current success and is seeking an Account Manager who gets brand strategy but who also enjoys getting stuck in.

The Account Manager will be getting their hands on a challenger brand in an over-crowded sector that is constantly jockeying for position and jostling for standout.  But it has a good budget to support its creative ambition and is willing to be a risk taker.  

The account is UK based and the agency is leading the creative development so the Account Manager will be handling an account that is all origination with an entrepreneurial feel and a quirky approach.

This is a very exciting time to be joining the account.  The Account Manager will be completely integrated from above the line (TV) through to social content.

The agency has a lot of get up and go and this energy is felt by their clients who are a feisty bunch with huge respect for the agency and who expect to have their views challenged.

The Account Manager can expect to be given a lot of autonomy and the headroom to manage their own campaigns and to run their own meetings with senior clients.  So the role would suit an Account Manager who is happy to speak their mind and has the confidence to push back.  

The agency is very supportive and friendly and takes a collaborative approach.
