Senior Account Manager - focusing on one major lifestyle brand
In its first seven years this consumer brand and lifestyle PR consultancy has established itself as one of the most creative and ambitious new agencies. It prides itself first and foremost on delivering stand-out ideas for its clients. It is now looking for a talented Senior Account Manager who is committed to creative execution and professional delivery for exciting and demanding clients.
This role will give you the chance to focus primarily on one client, taking up approximately 70% of your time. It's a major global brand and your remit will be to help take it out of its heartland and into broader mainstream media. As such it may suit someone who likes the idea of moving in-house to get under the skin of one brand, but who still enjoys the cut and thrust of agency life, and being at the heart of generating creative ideas.
You will be a tenacious media relations operator with a track record in generating publicity and developing your contacts across the media - but particularly in the tabloids and national lifestyle titles. You will also be a superb client handler, capable of playing a lynchpin role on a major account.
The ideal candidate will come from one of the leading PR agencies, possessing excellent client-handling skills and a successful new business track record. You will also be comfortable working in cross-agency and cross-discipline teams.
Being part of a small team you must be flexible enough to turn your hand to whatever needs doing. This is a great opportunity for someone to play their part in building a new and ambitious business - with the support of a strong parent company.
