Account Manager – MediaCom - Manchester
Our Planning and Client Services teams are the lynchpin within the agency. They support our clients through attentive client servicing and specialist knowledge, they build honest and open relationships whilst always striving to work in the most collaborative way, whether with colleagues and other internal teams or externally.
It’s an exciting time to be joining MediCom North - Due to a number of recent successful pitches, our Planning and Client Services team need to grow! We’re looking for an Account Manager to support this growth so are interested in speaking to those with a Media Agency background, with either Offline or Online experience- a moisture between the two would be ideal but not essential.
Our Account Managers are responsible for the day to day running of client business at a senior level and are responsible for using high levels of initiative to execute strategies, working with ourAccount Directors and Business Directors to take and distil client briefs and then come up with effective strategies.
