Senior Account Manager - Italian Speaking a Plus

Salary:£40000 - £45000 per annum
Job Type:Permanent
Date Posted:03/08/2022


The agency on this one is a boutique, social-first, independent advertising agency with a nice range of food, drinks, travel, luxury, and sports clients. Currently coming in at 20 people split between Milan and London, they deliver a range of integrated campaigns, social content, and digital marketing with teams split across client services, creative, and strategy. Culture wise, they are massively collaborative on a day to day basis and while they are a busy team they do make sure to enjoy themselves in the process - people are going in 3-4 days a week with some flexibility on hours.

You'll be working directly with the recently hired account director for London. Thanks to recently winning several pitches they are looking to add an account manager and a senior account manager to the team.

This is a really good opportunity for a senior account manager who wants to get out of a larger agency structure so that they can have a bigger voice in their team and wider business, as well as more autonomy with how they work; all while being guided and mentored by a highly experienced senior management team.

What You'll Be Doing

This is very much a classic account manager role, with a range of client management and project delivery responsibilities. You'll be responsible for:

  • Leading client relationships on 2-3 accounts.
  • Managing the creative briefing process.
  • Managing budgeting, timelines, and burn rate (though setting budgets is done as part of a team discussion).
  • Keeping clients in the loop on project updates and managing creative reviews.
  • Shaping your client's business by taking a highly strategic approach to the programme of work you are delivering.
  • Looking after an account manager (who we are also looking to hire).

Like all creative agency roles, you'll probably end up getting involved in a little more than this though, so be prepared to roll your sleeves up!

Who We're Looking For

We're looking for adaptable, organised and diligent people. Strong communications skills and an enthusiasm for the world of marketing is a must - and this interest is a core thing that this agency interviews for. We're looking for a solid three or four years plus of agency experience for this role, ideally as an account manager at a traditional advertising or social/digital agency.

Fluency in Italian is a big plus for this role and agency. You don't have to have language skills for the role, but they will give you a massive advantage in the interview process.

All the usual personality traits apply - we are after somebody who wants to roll their sleeves up and muck in with a tight knit, highly collaborative team. Again, I cannot emphasise that strong written and spoken communications skills are an absolute must.
