Superb opportunity for B2B Account Managers with PR and Marketing experience to join an integrated agency currently undertaking a huge recruitment drive.

The role:

There are two Account Manager roles available, with slightly different aims - one is a multi-disciplinary, client focused role, the other slightly more geared towards project management. For either role you'll be working in a fast-paced environment with responsibility for advanced writing of press releases, features and proposals, reporting and presentations. This agency has its roots in PR but has adopted a multi-disciplinary approach in recent years. Due to increased business from one of their longest-held clients, they're looking for an additional 7 team members some of which will work solely on the increased business wins, and others will be involved with the general client base which is relatively technical B2B for clients within pharma, health sciences, nutrition and technology. You'll be working with clients at every step of the way, ensuring projects are progressing satisfactorily and opportunities are being seized, and you'll continue to broaden and develop those client relationships. This agency's remit is very much international and you may find yourself liaising with press in the UK and Overseas. You'll also get the opportunity to manage a team. Normally, this client loves nothing more than promoting from within so mentoring and managing junior team members to reach their full potential will also be a part of the role.

What we're looking for:

To be considered for these roles you must be able to demonstrate a strong B2B PR agency background and a strong degree of commercial awareness probably over a couple of years. You'll be a confident and eloquent presenter and you'll show the creative ability to contribute ideas during planning and development of projects and campaigns. Additional foreign language skills are also an advantage but not a pre-requisite. You'll be meticulous

What's on Offer?

We've worked with this agency over a good number of years and have got to know them really well. They employ the best people and make them better. In return, they have a fantastic bonus structure and unlimited holidays, and have always adopted a flexible working policy (though this role isn't available as 100% remote), so expect a mix of being in the office and working from home.
