Account Manager - branding and communications
Branding and communications
Quite simply, a lovely place to work. This independent agency has an inclusive culture and team ethic; the two founders have a natural enthusiasm for what they do and it is infectious. The work spans branding and corporate communications and the team works with clients from a wide range of sectors. Work is both strategic and creative; they have a growing strategic function and take pride in crafting innovative client solutions. The team is 25 strong, informal yet professional, working with humour and gusto.
Account Manager – The Role
The team is now looking for an energetic and enthusiastic account manager to join the team. You'll probably be currently working at another creative agency, perhaps looking for somewhere with a more inclusive, friendly and supportive atmosphere. Perhaps you’re working in corporate comms and looking for a wider variety of work and more creative branding work. Perhaps you’re looking to develop your digital knowledge and understanding. Perhaps you’re looking for the opportunity to grow and develop in your next role and have the opportunity to take a next step up.
This person will be working with a great Account Director, supporting her across two large and growing branding/comms accounts. The work is very varied – from animation, infographics and campaign pieces to brand purpose work. You’ll have the opportunity to be mentored by the AD, before gradually taking on your own projects within time. There is real scope to develop in this role.
