Senior Account Manager – Outstanding London Agency – To £40k

Central London destination agency seeks talented Senior Account Manager for its largest and most high-profile account. Initially a 12-month fixed-term contract, this role is very likely to become permanent.

You need to be proficient in direct channels and multi-channel campaigns to qualify.

The agency

This multi-award-winning agency is one of the UK’s leaders in customer engagement marketing. Its London arm is the largest in a worldwide network of 67 agencies and, despite being able to draw on an enviable pool of talent, has the friendly feel and attitude of a smaller shop. Regularly named as one of Campaign’s best places to work, this agency really cares about its people.

You will need to be a strong and inquisitive thinker to be able to work through an idea and consider the wider impacts across the business. These could be contact strategy updates, test and learn plans, or creative and channel testing. The goal is to continually enhance and optimise activity to maximise revenue.

Data is key to everything the agency does, therefore a keen interest in data-driven campaigns is essential. You will be involved in the management of the whole process from data selection to analysis.
