PR Account Manager
My client is a leading PR Agency, looking to recruit an Account Manager to join their busy team.
You will be managing the PR and marketing for a number of their clients, providing advice, developing editor relationships, managing a broad range of marketing projects and ensuring marketing objectives are met. Generally account managers are responsible for all aspects of the project from strategy and planning, through implementation and execution, to reporting and analysis.
Account managers must have a strong grounding in marketing ideally with expertise in PR. Account managers advise clients on best marketing strategies, allocation of marketing budget across the marketing mix and tactics to implement the marketing plan, although they may work with agency principles or senior account managers when additional input or expertise is required.
Account managers are completely responsible for coordinating all activities for their accounts, ensuring all actions are completed by their respective deadlines, and that all administrative tasks, particularly reporting and billing, are completed effectively and efficiently.
Account managers must have a strong grounding in a broad range of marketing disciplines and also understand the trade-offs that need to be made when planning a marketing budget. This experience can only be obtained by working in a marketing environment, preferably both within a client and with an agency. Minimum experience would be a marketing degree or equivalent and three years working in a responsible marketing role; or four years in a marketing role with no formal qualification. Experience in other business functions is an advantage, and it is unlikely that someone with just three or four years’ experience in marketing would also need additional experience within a commercial role.
This is a fab opportunity to join a dynamic and driven PR Agency who are experts in their field.
