We’re Hiring - Senior Account Manager

We’re looking for an experienced Senior Account Manager to help our clients win their fight for relevance.

Job description

Senior Account Manager (Full Time)

Location

Altrincham, Manchester / Flexible

Why you?

As the first point of contact for our clients, you’ll be responsible for all aspects of project management; from creating and crafting briefs to reviewing creative work, presenting to clients and keeping projects on time and on budget.

You’re an experienced Senior Account Manager with a proven track record of building and maintaining strong client relationships and delivering outstanding client service.

You’ll have the ability to anticipate clients’ needs and be able to demonstrate expertise in managing sizeable brand projects. Proactively doing the necessary groundwork to keep abreast of clients’ brands to seek out new opportunities, generate new briefs and deliver outstanding work.

You’re an awesome communicator, capable of creating and deliver compelling client presentations, and clearly articulating briefs into the studio to ensure deliverables are on brand, on time and within budget.

You’ll be commercially savvy, using your excellent financial management skills to accurately budget for projects and actively propose solutions to financial challenges.

You’re a natural born organiser with an eye for great design and great attention to detail.

Ultimately, we’re a team of doers, so we’re looking for someone that isn’t afraid to roll up their sleeves and get stuck in to support their peers. The ability to cope under pressure (and have some fun along the way) is also a pre-requisite for life in our fast-paced, dynamic and young brand agency.

To be successful you’ll need to have:

  • A qualification to degree standard with expertise in marketing or design
  • Solid experience of working as a Senior Account Manager or Account Manager within a leading branding, design or creative business (please don't apply if you don’t have this essential experience)
  • Confident and effective financial management skills
  • Great problem-solving skills
  • Excellent communication skills, both verbally and in writing, with the ability to voice your own opinion
  • Amazing attention to detail and organisational skills
  • Experience of working with FMCG brands will be beneficial but is not compulsory.

What we offer

In addition to a competitive salary and 24 days holiday, we invest in learning and development for all employees, working with you to identify opportunities that will benefit your personal and professional development e.g. mentoring, industry training courses, conferences and events. 

Additional perks include flexible working, an Employee Assistance Programme to provide professional health and wellbeing support, annual flu vaccinations, eye care vouchers, complimentary fresh fruit, snacks, great coffee and a well-stocked beer fridge! We’re also a friendly bunch that enjoys regular team social events.

Why us?

We’re a creative agency founded by seasoned brand professionals. We specialise in brand design, strategy and innovation; our mission being to help brands win their fight for relevance. 

If you think you would be a great addition to the Brandon team, please send our Studio Manager, Anna, an introductory email telling us why you? Why us? And your salary expectations along with your CV.
