Are you the Account Executive we’re looking for? We currently have an exciting opportunity in one of Edinburgh’s most daringly creative agencies who have a strong heritage in Brand, Digital and Design for large FMCG clients. They are currently going through a very exciting period of growth and as such are on the lookout for an experienced Account Executive or Senior Account Manager to join the team.
This is a pivotal role within the agency as you’ll be the bridge between clients and the rest of the agency and will ensure that the agency is meeting the client’s needs whilst keeping them informed on the progress of all projects so someone with excellent organisational skills would be ideal! It goes without saying that proven experience and understanding of core account-handling duties as well as multitasking abilities is also a must.
The Ins and Outs:
- Experience managing multiple projects of different complexities
- Maintaining regular contact with clients
- Briefing internal departments and external stakeholders on project requirements – designers, project managers, freelancers etc
- Manage client expectations around process and deliverables, with particular attention to out-of-scope requests.
- Manage the entire project from conception through final delivery (e.g. client meetings/calls, status calls /meetings, reports, reviews)
- Tracking of projects and identifying issues which may affect delivery
- Budget management and monitoring and ensuring they stay in line with estimates (including invoicing projects on time)
Essential for this role:
- This role requires at least 1-2 years’ experience either in an agency environment or client side (FMCG sector preferred)
- Experience in either brand, design, experiential, environments, print or digital would be great.
- A good work ethic and can-do attitude – we are looking for hardworking and enthusiastic candidates who are happy to work out-with a job description
- Ability to prioritise your workload whilst being a self-starter and willing to challenge the status quo will definitely not go unnoticed.
