The role
Since their inception over a decade ago, this agency has grown year on year, retained all their clients, and maintained an excellent level of staff retention. Their client base covers different sectors from iconic consumer brands to major online players through to public sector giants. With a natural ability to build and foster relationships, your focus is to drive the growth of their business by delivering appropriate solutions through strategic creative thinking and exceptional customer service. The work is engaging, and wide and varied, and will typically cover employer branding and communications, through to adverting, media planning and buying, mobile apps, careers websites to social media management and content strategy. You'll be the face of their business and the role is as big as you want to make it. Reporting to the owners, you will take ownership for developing your clients and ensuring that the full suite of their services is embedded within your clients' resourcing and marketing strategies. You'll manage clients ensuring that solutions delivered are in line with the strategic direction of the business, and their objectives are met, and expectations exceeded.

What we're looking for

It is important that you have extensive experience in developing and managing employer branding strategies across print and online and are confident in creative and digital briefing and development processes. You'll need a solid understanding of website design and build processes, functionality and optimisation; as well as experience of the print/production process of off-line channels; or experience in developing and delivering social media marketing strategies. We envisage that you've most likely acquired a minimum of five years agency or client-side marketing experience who is looking to take their marketing skills into an agency environment. It is very important that you have experience in coaching account executives and managers and enjoy this part of the role.

The salary is up to £40,000 with a bonus structure of up to £4,500, with a company profit share scheme, 25 days holiday (plus your birthday off) and support for your career and professional development.
