Who You'll Be Working With
Contact: Daniel Whitmore
My client are a highly creative, independent design agency in Central London who have been busy throughout the year in spite of lockdowns and the industry being in a pickle due to the rona. Client wise, they've got a great mix of recognisable brands who they deliver a range of branding and design projects for with a heavy focus on packaging. They do deliver wider branding too, including brand identity and strategy projects across a range of touchpoints. They have an extremely well established account management and delivery team but due to growth they are looking to add an experienced client partner to the team to own several key relationships.
What You'll Be Doing
As a client partner you will be looking after and growing several key accounts for the agency, overseeing projects spanning brand identity, pack design and brand toolkits across a massive range of industries. In terms of the team around you, you'll be working closely with creative and design teams, other account managers, and the agency's senior management team as well as with senior stakeholders with your clients. You'll be expected to actively influence, orchestrate and contribute to delivering top notch work and build close relationships with your clients.
Who You Are
The usual personality traits apply; you need to be flexible and adaptable, able to work in a fast-moving, fluid agency environment with experience in building strong relationships and having a strategic viewpoint of how to grow an account and manage a team internally. Proven experience of working across multiple work streams, managing varied workloads and delivering budgets is absolutely key. In the ideal world you'll also have extensive experience in the branding sector (specifically packaging), as well as exposure to both B2B and B2C clients, and a strategic, consultative approach to your work.
