Job Details

No more commutes! This role is fully remote, with regular meet ups and access to meeting spaces

The role

Working within an account team you’ll be responsible for delivering and managing a number of high profile B2B and B2C campaigns across a range of food, drink and supplier brands. This is a hands-on role working across our growing client portfolio that includes some of the biggest names in the business: Nestlé Professional, Kraft Heinz, Santa Maria, Elior UK and McVitie’s.

You will play an integral role in the development and delivery of campaigns and will be responsible for the day-to-day running of accounts. You will also be responsible for managing the team, budgets and will be a key client contact. 

We host and attend numerous events and we want an Account Manager who is excited to get out and about (when we can safely do so).

The ideal candidate

  • PR agency experience at Senior Account Manager level or suitable for a strong Account Manager looking to progress
  • Foodservice experience and contacts within the industry are a must 
  • Ability to support with new business pitches 
  • Strong commercial acumen 
  • Experience in team management with the ability to prioritise projects and deliver campaigns across all media within agreed client service levels and budget
  • Excellent communicator and writer

Our people

At William Murray we are a social and down to earth bunch who enjoy food, drink and hospitality. There are lots of experts on our team and you’ll have plenty of opportunities to learn from this mix of marketing consultants, researchers, former journalists, event organisers, designers and award-winning PRs.

Benefits

While we work hard for our clients, we also recognise the importance of work-life balance.  

Benefits include:

  • Five weeks holiday
  • Regular, funded foodie nights out and team lunches 
  • Free access to Hospitality Action’s Employee Assistance Programme – run by the industry charity with specific support for mental wellbeing. It’s completely confidential and gives the team access to free personal counselling, managerial advice and a portal full of wellness advice and coaching
  • Flexible working: Following consultations with the team, we now work flexibly from all over the UK – from Glasgow to Brighton – and 100% of staff now rate our flexible working as ‘very good’/ ‘excellent’. We start between 6am-10am – and finish from 3pm-6:30pm. To keep in touch, we encourage weekly ‘walking meetings’– catching up with team members while out for a walk. We also host regular virtual socials – a Christmas party with an appearance from a goat, Taskmaster challenges, team quizzes and, next up, a tutored rum tasting.

In a nutshell

You’ll be joining the UK’s leading food, drink and PR agency, where you’re valued for your ideas and who you are. Not only will we look after your career, we’ll look after you, too.
