Account Manager (Advertising)

With the gift of the gab, exemplary people skills and dazzling organisation, account managers are often the smooth-talking point of contact between an agency and a client. In addition to overseeing a team and the delivery of a project, they will take responsibility for nurturing and developing an overall client relationship, with a keen eye for new opportunities, connections and business. Serving as a font of knowledge for both sides of the work – from budgets and timing to internal resources and personalities – they will have a good handle on whether proposed creative ideas and processes will actually work. This also accounts for their razor-sharp ability to predict and prepare for problems ahead of anyone else.

Please Note: The world of creative careers is broad and ever-evolving. While our descriptions aim to capture the essence of a role, we appreciate that no two jobs will be the same. We’re always looking to grow, expand and add to these roles, so if you feel we are missing something please let us know!
