The Creative Agency for the Account Manager

This is one of the most famous integrated creative agencies in London.  It tops the new business table and recently won Agency of the Year.   This is because it is one of the few agencies that actually does what it says on the tin!  

Unlike the big networks that knock out instantly forgettable saccharine campaigns, this agency is all about being sharp, tart and impactful .    

They have big ideas and stand as a beacon for creativity with their maverick entrepreneurialism.

They are key players on the pitch warpath and remain an irresistible choice to clients as they manage the tricky business of converting pitches but offering good levels of service to their existing clients.

They have an exciting portfolio and have built their reputation on turning challenger brands into stars.

More than any other agency, they know how to shake up a category and get tongues wagging about their work.

They get branding, yet have always been media neutral and embrace the rapid changes to the media landscape from social media through to TV.

The Account Manager role

Opportunities don’t come much better than this one!  This is a brilliant role for an Account Manager with a challenger spirit looking for a new adventure!

The Account Manager will be handling an innovative UK based account that the agency keeps winning creative awards on.  This is a really exciting account that has broken the creative mould and bucked the trend in its sector and garnered a lot of publicity along the way.

The London agency takes the brand lead on the account, handling creative and strategy.  

The agency has given a unique voice to the brand and the Creative department enjoy tearing into a new brief since the client is a risk-taker who sees the benefit of edgy creative.

The account is lively and exciting and would suit an Account Manager who is passionate about great creative and who enjoys being in a fast-paced environment and juggling lots of projects with autonomy.

The Account Manager needs to be thoroughly steeped in above the line with a firm grasp of brand strategy and the passion to fight for great creative.  

The Account Manager is expected to have a thorough knowledge of agency production/post production processes, especially in TV, press and OOH.  While these are the primary channels, the agency has adopted a test and learn approach to new ideas and executions so often there are social or digital projects that come up as well. 

This is a strong brand that is tapped into popular culture and would suit an entrepreneurial Account Manager who is opinionated with plenty of dynamism and ambition.

The agency gets the importance of account handling and the difference talent and energy can make to the business.  This shrewd agency believes in investing for the future so the Account Manager will be able to forge ahead with their career.

There is something quite powerful about an agency that has held onto its creative integrity.  A lot of the creative networks have lost their heritage to the bean counters who have taken over by stealth; slowly chipping away at The Work.   This clever agency kicks up its heels and rebels at convention.  

They lionise creative risk taking and know there is no value in a big haul of low-calibre awards.  The agency focuses on the “hard – to – win” Pencils that are a marker of excellence in the craft of creativity yet are only sparingly awarded to greatness.

Entrepreneurial self-starters thrive at the agency and this is the secret to their ability to take their client’s brands into the arena of popular culture so that it is talked about and transcends regular media channels.

Highlights of the Account Manager role: 

  • Joining an ambitious creatively driven top 10 integrated creative agency
  • Handling an incredibly exciting account
  • Winning creative awards
  • Managing a media neutral account
  • Running TV, print, digital, content and social media campaigns

  • Proven experience in a fast-paced environment 
  • Juggling multiple projects with autonomy.
  • Above the line agency background including TV and digital
