Account Manager – Advertising Agency – Central London – To £32k + good benefits

Is this already the role of the year?

Iconic Central London advertising agency seeks a talented agency Account Manager to work on a stunning retail account.

The ideal candidate would possess TV campaign and retail account experience – both would be the icing on the cake! However, neither are essential to apply.

The Account Manager role

The agency is looking for an Account Manager with a track record of implementing effective campaigns across a number of disciplines.

You need to be adept at handling client relationships with the confidence to lead and advise and have a background in delivering national campaigns.

The account

This retail account is one of the agency’s largest and they are proud to be the client's lead creative and strategic agency. This is a fantastic, fast-paced account with a client that is hungry for help in all sorts of areas of the business.

The agency has a primary responsibility for the ATL work but it supports the client in a range of other areas including digital, in-store and research.

It is a great role for someone who is looking to work on an account where they can make a real difference and see that difference every single day, where new ideas are welcome and energy and enthusiasm is rewarded.

The successful Account Manager must be able to demonstrate the following experience:

  • Minimum of one year as an Account Manager
  • A track record of implementing effective campaigns across a number of disciplines and give worked examples of this
  • Experience in managing multi-channel campaigns including digital
  • TV origination project manager experience under the supervision of the Account Director is desired but not essential
  • Be absolutely comfortable in a client-facing situation, able to nurture and build relationships with junior to mid-level clients, and be involved and contribute to strategic conversations involving brand positioning, business objectives, and channel strategy (but not lead them)
  • Be responsible for delivery up until the point that they need to hand over to a specialist producer (TV / print / digital where relevant) under supervision of the Account Director
  • Enjoy the fast-paced feel of a retail account that wants to grow and develop and take an agency with it

The Account Manager required

The ideal candidate will demonstrate the following capabilities:

  • Experience of working in a fast-paced environment, preferably retail
  • An enthusiastic approach and a ‘can-do’ attitude are KEY along with a track record of exceeding expectations / overcoming obstacles to deliver results
  • Organisation! There is lots going on and the right person needs to be able to chase the client and stay on top of everything to ensure the account continues to move forward apace
  • Good creative understanding and experience in stretching an idea into multiple channels
  • A track record of great project management ie managing the project lifecycle from beginning to end and delivering projects to time, to budget, to quality
  • Strong client relationship skills ideally demonstrated through references
  • Excellent communication skills, written and verbal with experience of successfully helping to sell in strong creative and strategic ideas
  • Good commercial focus, a record of keeping track of smaller projects and ensuring they come in on budget
  • A team player with a down-to-earth attitude
  • Good interpersonal skills and committed to developing team
