Who You'll Be Working With
My client are a highly creative, rapidly growing branding agency in North London who have a great team, deliver excellent work and a culture for ongoing development. They deliver a massive range of branding work including toolkits, naming, design and strategy, and are now looking to add an account manager to their well established and growing client services team. This hire is due to project load rather than a replacement, one of several hires the agency has made in the last month. Culture wise the current team are a highly collaborative bunch with a fluid approach who support one another on clients and projects and they have a real focus on continually getting better at what they do.
What You'll Be Doing
The job is very much that of an end to end account manager! You'll be responsible for supporting clients from the initial brief through to final delivery, helping the account to grow and keeping the client happy in the process. They don't have a dedicated project management team, so you'll be directly involved in making sure that projects are delivered in full, on time and on budget. Delivery wise, the work covers the usual mix of branding and design projects, along with ethnography, wayfinding, product design and some web / digital deliverables. Being comfortable dealing with very senior stakeholders (CEO / CMO level is the norm for this agency) is helpful!
We are looking for an account manager who is a highly organised, strategic thinker with exceptional communication and negotiation skills. Ideally, we're looking for someone who is used to working in a highly strategic, brand agency environment who understands the nuances of more strategic outputs, from brand identity and architecture down to toolkits. A versatile approach is invaluable for this role as the agency's clients range from well known, global brands down to brand new startups.
This a great opportunity to work with an agency that value their account management team very highly, and like to provide a thoughtful and friendly approach in all that they do. The successful candidate can expect to work in a really creative environment on some really varied and exciting projects.
