Before we go too far, you need to know something. You see, this Account Manager role calls for a genuine interest in data. If that's not you, maybe stop here (although, definitely don't).
Still with me?
Good. Because, for the right person, this is a fantastic role, within an incredible agency (more on them later).
Bridging the gap
The role works with the Performance Division. They're responsible for boosting the effectiveness and reach of the agency's content. You know, search optimisation, social and content audits, that sort of thing. Basically, they deal with a lot of data.
You'll be part of the Account Management team. But, as the face of the Performance Division, you'll be the bridge between the two.
What does that actually mean? Well, it means a few things. It means bringing the creative and performance sides of the agency together. It means creating joined up proposals that meet clients' needs. And it means supporting new opportunities and representing them within the clients.
This is a bit of a mixed role. It’s best summed up as covering three main areas, plus reporting. That’s not to under value reporting – it’s an important part of the role.
I’ve already touched on the first bit – representing the Performance Division of the agency. You could say everything you’ll do sits within this. So, keep that in mind as you read on (I hope you are reading on).
The next bit concerns managing the team. Not directly. You’re not suddenly going to find yourself looking after a load of people. This means running weekly meetings, keeping project plans up to date and sharing actions.
You’ll need to know all activities going on right across the agency. The role manages the resourcing schedule, both for short and long-term planning. This includes freelancers and other external resource, by the way.
Finally (for this bit), you’ll be there to receive and create briefs with your agency buddies. This brings together all the previous bits, to make sure everyone is available and knows what’s going on.
This team, like everyone else in this agency, like to push themselves a bit (honestly, it’s actually quite a lot). This includes all sorts of initiatives, from content projects to product portfolio enhancements. You're there to help manage these projects.
And it’s not just the fancy pants, innovation stuff you’ll be supporting. The work the Performance Division does touches everything the agency creates. You’ll be there to support all projects and make sure they’re integrated across the business. It's all about bridging that gap.
And reporting. Specifically, dealing with performance reports. So everyone knows how well the agency is getting on. And you can shout about all the great work the Performance guys are doing while you're at it.
They’re a content marketing agency. They make awesome digital marketing stuff – the kind of thing people look at when they should be working. Their work is all about telling stories for tech companies through incredible content. You know the sort of thing – highly creative, looks amazing, makes you think “how did they make that?”
What’s more, they’re big on training and development. They’re fun, sociable and collaborative. It’s a great place to work, with some cool perks and an amazing location.
Pay, experience, etc.
Up to £40k per annum, based on experience and potential.
You’ll have a few agency years under your belt. You’ll be well-organised. And, as I said up front, you’ll have a genuine interest in data. It should be clear why you need that, by now. I hope.
