Account Manager - Design & Branding Agency - West London - to £40k

 

Stunning mid-sized design and branding agency seeks an Account Manager to work on the agency’s biggest and much loved FMCG account - you will love, love, love this brand!

The Account Manager Role

The Account Manager will work with the most creative, open-minded clients on the planet – nice people who trust you and the team to come up with some cracking ideas on a daily basis.

You’re so bright your doctor’s prescribed you a dimmer switch! You’re so multitasking, you’re reading this whilst unicycling. You’re so self-motivated, you’ve already applied for the job and you haven’t even read the description yet! You obsess about detail, you crush deadlines, you’re as persistent as a spider, as organised as the mafia and change gear like Lewis Hamilton.

Discrete like Bond, professional like Jobs and you understand why a job description like this should be fun to read.

That’s you, and you’ll be showing off your ability to complete complex tasks and projects quickly with virtually no guidance by reacting with appropriate urgency to situations that require a quick turnaround and taking effective action without having to know the whole picture. Sound fun? Sound challenging? Want to bring cakes for the team each morning? Great!

Account Manager Role Requirements

You will look after the agency’s clients to ensure they deliver their promises. Sometimes, they need to give people a little reminder, a push or even a nudge with tact and diplomacy!

You will put together proposals, estimates, specifications, schedules and briefs. Occasionally you will turn your hand to a bit of planning, research and creative brainstorming.

Their Account Managers have even been reported seen wielding a scalpel, branding a burnisher and making a mock-up or two. Their Account Managers all have superhuman powers!

Typical projects include sales promotion, brand positioning, packaging and digital and events - it’s an exciting and diverse Account Manager role, with packaging projects at the heart of what you will do.

You will need…

• at least three years’ experience in account management
• to be comfortable taking ultimate responsibility for quality, deadlines and budgets
• to be able to keep work on brief (as well as on schedule)
• equally strong literacy, numeracy and administrative skills
• to be a whizz at spreadsheets with excellent organisational skills
• to have worked on digital projects as well as print
• to love working with people who treat you like a member of their family
• to live and breathe the brands the agency work with (they only work with brands they’d consume themselves)
• to love river views stretching the length of the Thames (they have riverside studios)

It would be a real bonus if you…

• love dogs (they occasionally have dogs in the studio)
• bake cakes (they have their own kitchen)

How much?

The agency always start by asking you – what sort of a salary are you looking for? You tell them what you’re likely to cost and they will tell you if their pockets are deep enough.

What next?

If they like the cut of your jib, your CV and the things people say about they will invite you over for a cup of tea. They don’t like first interviews as they’re a tad formal. So, instead, they’ll just give you a tour of their place and tell you all about themselves.
