Full Time

A Senior Account Manager role at an ambitious and fast growing integrated agency with BIG global ambitions. It's an opportunity to be part of the energy of a new start up working with a huge global brand with the backing of serious marketing spend.

The agency has a great people centric culture. It's a vibrant and alive environment with opportunity to work alongside talented people from excellent network agency backgrounds in all disciplines.

It's a dream job for a Senior Account Manager looking to deliver and develop their career on the way to the next level. The role is for a strong SAM with proven retail and or experiential background. There will be co-branded campaigns to oversee with a team of SAE's and AM's who will need support and direction from you as they develop and deploy various campaigns.

Campaigns can vary from a short run cash back promotion with a small selection of POS and digital support to a full SIS campaign roll out nationwide with partner retailers with budgets of up to £2million. You will have had experience of working closely with production managers, project managers, designers, 3D visualisers, retail creative directors and retail strategists to deliver these campaigns.

You will work around and be expected to learn from other channel disciplines as workloads will vary in the Client Services team. No experience is required in these but expect to learn about Digital, Motion Graphics, TV and Print. If you are a strong retail SAM and want to broaden your core skill set to include other comms channels on your career path to an integrated skill set then this is definitely the role for you.

Taking the initiative and responsibility to deliver campaign activities to a high standard with clear client and internal communication management is a must for the role. All the necessary foundations for a strong retail SAM need to be evident in the candidates application; financial control of campaigns, retail production and POS design management, briefing writing, presentation of work, status team meeting updates, Campaign Toolkit development and deployment, client and internal stakeholder management to a senior level and experience of delegating to others.

A central London location with easy access to mainline and underground tube lines, surrounded by great bars and restaurants makes this a fantastic place to be around.

The role is for a strong Senior Account Manager but a driven Account Manager with at least 2 years heavy weight experience of the skills required may be considered. The selection process will be thorough so only the experienced should apply.
