This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced communications professional to join a dynamic, award-winning communications agency and play a key role in its future.
You will be central to winning, retaining and growing our client relationships.
We require a capable, team-oriented account manager with entrepreneurial flair. You must be passionate about the power of great communications and have the experience, passion and technical know-how to oversee a diverse range of projects.
This is both a strategic and hands-on role. You must have the basics – exceptional written and verbal skills. You will have proven experience of bringing great stories to life across a range of media.
As account manager, you will be a key contact for clients, adept at translating their strategy and priorities into tangible communications outcomes. You will be able to take – and challenge – client briefs and liaise with your colleagues across AB to bring ideas to life.
You will have approximately five years’ experience in communications, ideally working in both the agency and corporate environment. You will have managed business-as-usual channels – face-to-face, digital and printed – change and transformation projects, campaigns and engagement projects. You will have led research and measurement projects.
First class interpersonal skills are essential. You will be able to influence and build trust at senior levels, plus have the confidence to challenge conventional thinking and help AB exploit new opportunities.
You will be joining a strong culture, founded on family values. We are highly collaborative and inclusive. We care deeply about each other, our clients and work. The right candidate will share this approach. You can read more about AB’s culture here.
