Job Description

Senior Account Manager - 12 month FTC
Brand, Comms and Design Agency (FMCG)

This is a fantastic opportunity for an experienced Senior Account Manager to join a very successful brand, comms and design agency in Central Manchester on a fixed term contract to cover maternity leave. This role is vital to the success of the agency and is likely to be renewed on a permanent basis after the contract is up.

Your role will be varied but largely centred around branding for a number of clients in the luxury food and beverage industry. You'll work with clients across all stages of a campaign, from initial structuring and planning, including advice on branding, packaging design and content, through to project management and delivery of the campaign. You will become part of a highly passionate team of creatives who always go above and beyond for their clients, striving to find new and innovative ways to promote their brands.

There are lots of very big and exciting campaigns for you to get stuck in with from day one so you will need to be able to hit the ground running, demonstrating a solid understanding of Brand Activation / Shopper Marketing / Promotional Marketing best practices - ideally within the luxury FMCG industry.

*Degree educated or equivalent, ideally within Marketing or related subject
*At least 4+ years previous experience in an account management role
*A solid understanding of advertising, marketing and strategy
*A thorough knowledge of an internal agency process and implementation
*A good commercial understanding of how to run profitable accounts
*A broad knowledge of various media channels including press advertising, direct marketing, radio, TV and digital
*A good working knowledge of Microsoft Office - Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook

So what's in it for you?

This is an opportunity to join an agency that value potential over what's on paper. They very rarely need to recruit as they promote from within and are now expanding one of their biggest internal teams, so be prepared for consistent rewards and recognition.

Looking to join a relaxed but social environment? This could be the place for you… Every Friday there's a time to gather together, tools down and meet for treats - sharing stories about the week, what you're getting up to at the weekend and often chasing an office dog around too…

These guys take huge pride in their work and never present anything to their clients less than perfect. If you're someone that can combine innovative thinking with solid organisation and communication this could be the role for you.
