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've got a very well established client services team, and are now looking to add a capable account manager to the mix. Culture wise, they've got a very flat and open structure and work in a flexible manner - the environment would be great for somebody who either prefers the flexible small agency way of working, or who is frustrated with being boxed in by a job description at a larger business.
What You'll Be Doing
As an Account Manager you will be overseeing the management and delivery of projects for a range of brands which span dozens of sectors. Delivery wise, the work is predominantly branding and packaging design. They don't have a dedicated project management team so you can expect to be hands on with delivering the work from end to end rather than simply being an order taker and relationship manager - you'll be taking briefs, scoping work, budgeting, managing timescales, and then delivering the work on a project by project basis.
We are looking for somebody who wants to muck in. The agency are fast paced and highly collaborative so you'll need to be a quick learner, highly adaptable, and excited to get your hands dirty delivering projects from end to end. We want somebody who can work closely with everyone and anybody internally, doing what it takes to get great work done for your client. We would like to get somebody in who already has some solid experience (a couple of years) working as an agency account manager though you could come from a big network agency or a boutique, so long as you are comfortable running a range of accounts with a focus on pack design. The team are highly energetic, personable, and passionate about the work they do so they'll want somebody who can complement that.
In short, it's a great chance to take a on a broad, collaborative position with a well known agency where you can make great work for brilliant brands.
