Job description

You don’t need a top hat and a rabbit to make the magic happen: a Gantt chart and a block of post-its are way more effective. 

We’re looking for a brilliant Senior Account Manager to join our team for a maternity cover contract. You’ll bring a safe pair of hands, an eye for detail and, having strong agency or internal communications experience, you come with a few tricks up your sleeve to keep clients delighted. That’s what we call magic.

Working alongside an Account Director, with support from an Account Manager, you’ll have responsibility for your own projects and areas of key client accounts, as well as supporting a busy client services team. You’ll work closely with our creative studio, liaising with suppliers and being the main day-to-day contact for your clients. Your role is a crucial one for our business, after all, you’re fundamental to the smooth-running of our team. No pressure then!
