Graduate New Business Account Manager

We have an exciting Graduate / Entry Level opportunity with a leading Business Development consultancy working within the creative sectors.

This innovative business is a key partner to a plethora of well known digital, creative and marketing communications agencies. Founded in 2011 they offer a range of consultative services with lead generation at the core. Employing 30 people in an office based just a stone's throw away from London Bridge, this award winning consultancy is renowned for helping creative agencies grow.

Joining as an entry level New Business Account Manager you will be responsible for managing the delivery of new business for two marketing & creative agencies. You'll get up and running quickly, with training and support throughout your role from the senior team. Whether you are contacting brands on behalf of the agencies you are representing (50% of your time on the phone, 50% over crafted, targeted emails); supporting agencies with their marketing activity; or working closely with clients to ensure you have a deep understanding of their businesses, it will be your essential input that ensures the client is kept happy with new business opportunities.

You will spend 3 days per week in their London Bridge office, and 2 days per week working from the offices / studios of the agencies you will be supporting.

We are keen to hear from sales savvy grads - this can be with a background in anything from charity fundraising and estate agency to recruitment and hospitality, but they're not fans of the stereotypes as they like to take a more personal approach. We are keen to hear from interesting individuals who possess a passion to enter the creative agency world and who may have interned at an agency before, and the desire to fast-track their career.

To qualify... Whether you call yourself a Graduate Sales Executive / Account Manager / Business Development Exec / New Business Account Manager, we don't mind, your CV just needs to demonstrate:

  • Degree-educated with an interest in marketing and brands / products;
  • Strong interpersonal / communication skills;
  • Strong client-facing and presentation skills;
  • The ability to multi-task;
  • A great team player mentality with oodles of initiative and creativity.

Please include a cover letter which makes you stand out from the crowd!!!

In return you will benefit from a competitive salary, quarterly bonuses, career progression, on-the-job continual training and a fun and enjoyable company atmosphere, with monthly team outings, a MacBook Air, pension, the company of their office dog Lady Coco and a massive amount of knowledge. Get in touch...
