Senior PR Account Manager
Established over 15 years ago, this is an opening with one of the North West's leading PR and marketing agencies, providing clients with an exceptional digital service alongside PR and further marketing activity. Due to a recent run of account wins, their digital team is now growing and on the hunt for a designated Senior Account Manager.
They're incredibly proud of their long-standing relationships with some fantastic clients, in both the B2B and B2C arenas. This role is B2B, but these relationships are the result of sustained, high standards: it goes without saying that you'll share these standards, too.
This is most definitely a key appointment within the company, where you will provide strategic guidance to a number of high profile organisations in the B2B and consumer sectors. The role will involve developing PR strategies and solutions for the brands, handling complex communication issues at all levels, ensuring that quantifiable and meaningful results are achieved for clients, and playing a central role in new business development. They boast an enviable client list of accounts that is added to all the time and pride themselves on an extremely low staff turnover. The most attractive element of this role is that will work in a supportive environment with an inspiring team who are all dedicated to the success and growth of this award-winning agency
What we're looking for
First off, you'll have great account handling skills, lots of initiative, a creative spark, and always looking for opportunities to help your clients prosper, and you won't mind getting your sleeves rolled up. Apart from your B2B expertise, you'll also have wider experience in PR and marketing. You'll need management skills to nurture and develop your team and enjoy putting together proposals that will help win new business.
You'll be entrepreneurial and proactive, and have a good grasp of the digital landscape and be able to work collaboratively with their in-house design, web, social and content teams. In essence, we're looking for an experienced PR practitioner to be the strategic lead on an interesting and varied portfolio of B2B accounts, comprising a mix of retained PR clients and ad hoc project work. It's unlikely that you'll have less than five years' experience and maybe in a large agency setting but seeking more of say in a mid-sized setting.
What's on offer?
A salary of between £30,000 - £33,000 and the most attractive element of this role is that will work in a supportive environment with an inspiring team who are all dedicated to the success and growth of this award-winning agency. This agency is, without doubt, one of the most respected in the North West, where you will be given every chance to build a successful new chapter in your PR career. So if you're looking for a role that will provide professional development and which will give you responsibility, support and the chance to work with top draw clients, please send your CV or call Simon on 0161 425 7352.
