Role (summary):

The role is for an Account Manager working on two major global brands – one a luxury automotive brand and the other a popular premium cosmetics retailer. Although, you will be expected to support on other VML clients and prospects as appropriate.

Daily contact with clients is a key part of the job, so offering new and forward-thinking ideas is essential to the productive communication process. Often, an Account Manager will be expected to pitch to clients, so a very confident and assertive attitude is necessary to promote the agency’s ideas and benefits.

One of the most important tasks as an account manager is to write and deliver the brief; a well targeted brief is often the making of a great campaign and should convey the client’s requirements accurately.
