The Account Manager role

The role is for an Account Manager to handle two well-known international FMCG brands.  One of them is a youth account that has achieved international cult status.  This brand has enjoyed a crafty re-launch as a renegade brand among its more strait-laced peers.

It has carved its own niche and takes a maverick approach to marketing.  However, this is not a shotgun affair but a carefully planned campaign that has thrown up fantastic results through audacious creative.

The other, a well-known food brand, is an international bestseller.   This is a good time to join the account sine the client wants to inject more magic into the brand.  So you are looking at winning some creative gongs while handling an exciting creative challenge that you will be in on from the beginning.

Both brands offer interesting business challenges and creative variety.  You will be liaising with bright marketing savvy clients who will be looking to you to get to grips with their commercial issues.
