Account Manager, Creative Agency, Central London, £30k - £32k
What’s the Creative Agency like for the Account Manager?
Although it is part of a large successful network, there is a small agency feel here. It is friendly and vibrant and talent is quickly picked up and developed. It is edgy but still feels nurturing.
Unlike the other big networks that need to oversell the action in order to attract the right talent, this agency offers genuinely exciting opportunities that draw in “best in class”.
Their work is stunning and gutsy.
The trick is to provoke rather than offend; that’s the tightrope this creative advertising agency knows how to walk. They keep the right balance and their creative is daring and exciting rather than dull and insulting.
As the media landscape gets more fragmented and consumers become marketing savvy and time poor, there is huge pressure on creative agencies to be more provocative with their campaigns as they entice consumers to build a relationship with the brand.
It’s all about being a crowd teaser rather than a client pleaser! As a result the agency produces salty creative that tickles the synapses as opposed to anodyne campaigns that are instantly forgotten.
The Account Manager role
The Account Manager will be handling a terrific FMCG account that stands apart from the “me too” competition with a war-chest full of iconic brands.
The icing on the cake is that the Account Manager will be handling a relatively new account for the agency so will be in from the beginning and able to make their mark.
The agency has been lucky with this win as the brands are the best the client has to offer and some of the best within the category itself. They are originated from the UK and slightly quirky; lending themselves well to creative fun and games.
The account is guaranteed to offer the Account Manager career stimulus and a renewed interest in edgy thinking.
It’s time to get your mojo back!
There is a mixed portfolio for the Account Manager to get their teeth into. The Account Manager will be handling some challenger brands that want to knock the goliaths off their perch, whereas others are brand titans that plan to further crush the competition underfoot.
Some of them are noisy while others are new to banging the drum. But they all want to make a difference and shake up the sector.
The client also has a soft spot for these brands and has given them a far looser creative rein backed up by a big budget.
The agency in turn has put its best creative team on the account and let them run free.
If it’s process you’re after then this won’t suit. It is an untamed account that needs an entrepreneur willing to go the extra mile driven by creative insatiability.
The agency knows how to indulge innovation and keep its talent on board.
