Great opportunity to step up into an autonomous SAM role in this thriving independent, entrepreneurial creative communications agency.

The Agency

Independent, entrepreneurial, creative, commercial – this is an integrated creative communications agency with an excellent success record. They work with corporate and consumer clients to deliver a whole range of brand and communications solutions, from advertising, websites, corporate identity and collateral to social media and creative strategy. It’s a happy environment and the agency has a strong record of staff retention.

The Senior Account Manager role

The senior account manager will be the principle handler for one of their larger clients. They will be responsible for all the creative campaigns through the year - taking the brief and managing it through creative development and production, predominantly in print.

The senior account manager will be working with the client team and the creative team and needs to organise and push through everything in between. They'll need good relationship skills, be able to understand the discipline and the client’s business in detail.

The senior account manager needs to be -

  • ·         confident, commercially-minded, a team player but also happy working independently
  • ·         organised, pragmatic, articulate, quick thinker, able to juggle projects
  • ·         have proven experience as a senior account manager working closely with clients
  • ·         have an appreciation and an understanding of print and processes
  • ·         have great attention to detail and be good at completing tasks
  •        enjoy being hands on

The Senior Account Manager may be working in a creative independent as an AM and looking for a step up; they may be working in a larger agency and looking for more independence and autonomy in their role. They’ll need to be confident of their abilities – but in return, they’ll get the freedom to run with their projects.

For these and for other exciting opportunities in both consumer and corporate branding, please do get in touch. 

About me

I have over 14 years’ experience working in branding and design management recruitment. I’ve worked at two leading agencies in the sector, spending nearly seven years heading up the branding and design management team at Major Players before leaving to work independently last year.

I focus primarily on design and branding, working with a large network of agencies, from larger, group owned consultancies to medium-sized independents and boutique agencies.

My philosophy is simple; to offer the best possible service and solutions to both candidates and clients and develop strong, long term relationships. I work with senior, middleweight and junior positions and love meeting people with energy and ambition. I’m honest, upfront, and know the sector extremely well; always ready to offer industry or career advice where necessary, remaining as impartial as possible to help build your career.
