This 40-person agency is a well-established digital marketing transformation agency that is focused on unlocking incremental opportunity and enhancing marketing performance for its clients.

Fronting the account, you will build strong relationships with senior-level clients and manage teams across design and build, content strategy and performance marketing. You’ll be supported on all sides by agency experts (creative, project and account management).

You will soon take charge of your second account (accounting for around 20% of your time) which requires ‘classic digital marketing’ for a London restaurant cruise experience.

•       Satisfy, engage and listen to clients

•       Deliver against projected revenue and increase revenue through cross-selling and up-selling

•       Lead client status calls and internal status meetings

•       Ensure all work is delivered to the brief, on time and within budget

•       Contribute to new business efforts

Skills and experience required

•       5+ years’ digital agency experience with at least 2+ years at Account Director level

•       Experience of working with multi-function teams across SEO, Creative, Paid Search, UX Design, Business Analysis and Solution Architecture.

•       A good track record and talent for managing senior clients through EMS level digital transformations

•       An established background in consumer brands is desirable. Hospitality experience would be a bonus

•       Excellent people and relationship-building skills are key to be being able to work closely with departments across the agency

•      The drive and passion to get stuck into every project 

•      Great organisation and pride in attention to detail

•       A confident and articulate communicator

•       Have the ability to contribute to and execute agreed strategies on client accounts

•       A curious, creative marketer who gets a buzz out of driving business results without sacrificing creativity

Salary and benefits

To £75k along with great colleagues, great clients, 25 days’ holiday, BBQs and beer fridges, a car park, your birthday off and much more besides.

Working patterns in the ‘new normal’ are TBC but the agency anticipates a hybrid office / work-from-home model. 

To be considered for this role, candidates must be eligible to live and work in the UK.

Whilst every effort is made to contact everyone who applies, due to a high number of applications we are unable to give individual feedback to those who are unsuccessful.
