Job type: Full-time [37.5 hours]
Salary: £21k- £28k
Location: Based at our Lincoln HQ - Remote working temporarily due to COVID-19
Closing date for applications: 13th April 2021
We are looking for a talented and experienced Account Manager to join our team of changemakers based in Lincoln. We are looking for someone with drive and passion to manage our portfolio of client accounts, serving as the primary point of agency contact for our clients. Experience working within an agency setting as well as strong written and verbal communication skills are essential to success in this role, as you will be responsible for understanding our clients wants and needs, offering creative and strategic input to propose the right solutions for them. You will work collaboratively with the Social Change UK team to execute research, marketing and creative briefs on time and budget.
To succeed in this role, you are someone who knows when to push and when to let things simmer. The Account Manager role requires a strong but non-aggressive leadership style, as you will ultimately control the agencies use of time and resources. Confidence is key as you will then be responsible for presenting the product deliverables to the client and feeding back to the internal departments.
Collaboration and teamwork is also essential to this role. In addition to all the “soft” people skills required to do this job well, you must be highly organised and work well under pressure. In this role, you will manage a multitude of tasks simultaneously across all our client accounts to a high standard, ensuring none are neglected, and all are delivered on time and to budget.
In this role, you will also play a crucial role in client retention as well as bringing in new business as part of an existing client referral process.
While we value great attention to detail and quality applications, if you are interested please don't delay in applying for this role, we will be monitoring applications on an ongoing basis up until the closing date of the 13th April, but this may be brought forward if the right candidate is found.
