Company Description

Our client are looking for several new account managers to join their rapidly growing team.

This is not your typical account role and will challenge everything that you think you know or have previously experienced.

The role requires a unique blend of creative knowledge, industry insight, client handling and understanding of how to leverage technology.

You could be handling up to 100 different accounts in over 20 countries at the same time.

You need to be comfortable with dealing with project budgets ranging from $500,000 for a Shanghai-based games company looking for a creative agency to a $400-a-day animator for a London VFX studio.

You’re customer obsessed and are continually thinking about how you can improve their experience of hiring the best team for the project. You’ll be working with a sales director as well as a research team to ensure that you’re able to present the best possible options for every brief. You need to have excellent communication skills, be personable on the phone and cool under pressure for ridiculous turnarounds. You’ll probably never meet most of the clients in person - so if you’re into long lunches in Soho this one is probably not for you!

They are looking for someone who is passionate about being at the cutting edge of change in the creative industry and is forward looking. By joining the fastest growing creative industry tech company, you’ll never again wake up in the morning thinking, “I hate my job.” Client delight and referral is a key driver of new business and you will need to be able to federate inside agencies and brands to get to other stakeholders. It’s not a hard sell and once a client tries the service, they never go back
