My client is a respected, independent communications agency with long standing clients and a reputation for producing impactful, award-winning work. It has a track record of punching above its weight and its ambitious plans for growth make it stand out as an agency that's genuinely going places.
It is currently looking for a Senior Account Manager and as the agency is based in Cardiff it's a role for someone who is already based in that area, or who wants to be located a commutable distance from there.
The team is looking for an ambitious, passionate and fearlessly creative practitioner who has exceptional experience working across all media (print, online, broadcast and social), creating award-winning, integrated work. Someone who sets themself the highest standards, who has creativity, enthusiasm and is digitally progressive.
This has never been a 'regional' focused agency, and very much see the UK's leading agencies as their competition. A point further illustrated by the recent hiring of a Director from one of the industry's biggest global agencies. As such they look for people who have that same hunger and entrepreneurial spirit, understanding they're on a journey and relishing those growth opportunities.
The role will suit someone with a blend of traditional and digital PR and content skills. This includes an excellent background in securing top tier media coverage with links as well as in niche industry placements. The media aspect requires someone who jumps out of bed spotting and thinking about newsjacking and reactive PR opportunities. Whilst in the wider team you will be a friendly and motivational leader.
The immediate client portfolio sits at what you might call the slightly more serious end of consumer PR - running integrated campaigns for more issues-based clients, rather than product PR. That includes a FTSE 100 financial services brand, with the activity touching on a huge range of aspects of modern life.
In return you'll be joining an agency whose whole ethos is around helping people be the best they can. There are no limits to progression, indeed they want to attract people who can genuinely make a difference no matter what level they're at. It's an environment where if you have an idea you will be encouraged to go and explore it. It also has a major commitment to culture, including building a diversity panel, an academy for training and development, and an enhanced benefits package designed to be flexible so as to reflect the different priorities for people at different stages of their career.
