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

One of London’s hottest agencies and the sweetheart of the industry.  This great hotshop has blown a fresh westerly wind through the creative world!

They have elbowed the larger agencies out of the way and punched above their weight on the new business front and brought home a series of wins that are the envy of the bigger networks.   This is medium-sized agency with a boutique feel built on a solid financial foundation.

There is a schism developing in the industry at the moment between the strapped-for-cash-networks and the buoyant independents.  More and more the big players are feeling the squeeze as the pressure is on to deliver more for less and they are in danger of becoming too executional.

However, this fantastic agency is on the up – not its uppers!  They are thriving and are in the enviable position of being able to turn away the workaday clients and cherry picking the accounts they want to work on.

They are a magnet for clients who dramatically want to make a difference to their business and are happy to take a creative gamble.  

The agency is flying high and recruiting as a result of growth.

The Senior Account Manager will be leading some client conversations and will be expected to have a good understanding of strategic development and carry an opinion on creative.  The nature of the agency and the role means that the Senior Account Manager will need to be confident in their own judgement and astute as to what needs doing.

The success of the agency means that there is plenty of opportunity for growth and the Senior Account Manager will find themselves being stretched and challenged as the agency continues to thrive.
