Account Manager (Social)

WDT are looking for an ACCOUNT MANAGER to join this fast growing, and super-friendly social agency.  Are you one of those and can you start in the next few minutes? Okay great.

As an Account Manager, you’ll play an integral role in delivering fantastic work for some of the agency’s biggest and most exciting clients. You’ll have an excellent understanding of the social media landscape, be comfortable liaising closely with senior clients and stakeholders, and work collaboratively with creative, design and production teams within the agency to effectively manage projects from briefing to asset delivery.

KEY RESPONSIBILITIES

Project Management: You’ll be able to competently summarise client briefs in order to brief the creative team, develop budgets, timelines and SOWs. You’ll be comfortable working collaboratively with the creative team to create client friendly proposals and RTBs, and liaise closely with our design and production teams to ensure projects remain on track and are delivered on time. You’ll be an incredibly organised, proactive and diligent individual, with enough initiative to take a project by the horns and own it from start to finish.

Client Management: working with clients at a senior level, you’ll be well-versed in the art of managing expectations and constructively pushing back where needed. You’ll also have fantastic communication skills, be able to switch on the charm with clients, present clearly and confidently and be an all-round email and communication wizard.

Quality Control: you’ll be the brand guardian of your accounts, preventing any work that isn’t up to scratch or on-brand from leaving the building.

Commercial: you’ll have a strong understanding of managing campaign and production budgets and be able to identify opportunities for upselling and growing your accounts wherever and whenever possible.

Team player: reporting directly into a senior member of the accounts team, you’ll work closely with all in-house departments, including design, production and creative. This role also offers the opportunity to oversee more junior members of the Accounts Team, delegating work where needed.

YOU’LL NEED:

  • Track record of working and progressing either agency or client side working in social, digital, marketing and/or advertising
  • Experience working in a fast-paced environment, handling multiple projects or accounts at once
  • An ability to diplomatically negotiate tricky deadlines and client requests, to deliver work on time and to the highest possible standard
  • Business sense, commercial acumen and the ability to handle P&Ls
  • A good understanding of social media metrics and what they mean
  • An understanding of the paid social landscape
  • To be dedicated, hard-working and tenacious and passionate about the work you do
  • To be highly organised and be able to remain calm under pressure
  • To be able to work on several projects/briefs at once, handle multiple stakeholders and work in inter-agency team set-ups.
  • To be a self-starter who takes initiative and is not afraid to roll your sleeves up and get your hands dirty if something needs doing
  • A good creative eye and attention to detail
  • Proficiency in the Microsoft Office suite, particularly Powerpoint, Excel and Outlook
  • Experience in conducting social media analysis and pulling together results/reports

EXTRA AWESOME:

  • A solid understanding of how to drive all parts of the client’s sales funnel and objectives using new and existing functions on the platforms (eg. awareness, interest, decision, action)
  • An excellent knowledge of Instagram and knowledge of how to execute best-in-class content
  • Being able to demonstrate a passion for social media, creative work and the industry as a whole
