Job Description

Rev up your career! We're on the hunt for 2 Account Managers to join our team and work with our automotive clients: Jeep, Citreon Citroen and Spoticar (Stellantis’ own car resale brand used car brand) in one role, and Fiat and Vauxhall in the other!

These brands are evolving with data-driven solutions to enhance their impact in Auto marketing. The Manager is a key contact, responsible for exemplary client service and strategic collaboration with the Account Director.

What will I be doing?

In this role, you’ll be responsible for building strong, trusted relationships with the clients and working collaboratively with Investment, Performance and digital operations teams to deliver high quality, timely responses to briefs from the client.  You’ll look for proactive media opportunities and deliver best in class campaigns across your brands, and across a variety of platforms.  You’ll also manage an Account Executive in the team, encouraging their professional growth.


What are we looking for?

The successful candidates for these roles will have an insatiable curiosity and enthusiasm for media planning and communications and will have worked across campaigns in the performance space before.  You’ll have a good understanding and knowledge of planning processes, digital channels and how they can work alongside each other, and will have the ability to work within and contribute to an integrated agency team across media and data.  You’ll be incredibly proactive, spotting opportunities before anyone else and ensuring the best opportunities solutions for the client.

One role requires someone with a solid, media planning background, and for the other role, we're happy to bring in someone from a performance media buying background who wants to move into a more planning focused role.

We’re looking for someone who’s a confident communicator, willing to actively participate in client meetings, delivering presentations when required, but also playing an active role in the internal team as well.
