Do you see yourself as an aspiring Account Manager within an advertising agency or equivalent client side environment? Do you think you have the skills to manage campaigns and projects effectively and produce great results? Maybe you are a new entrant to the market and are looking for entry level opportunities? Or maybe you have a few years experience in account management and are looking to boost your career by working with larger clients and supplier base? Whatever the case, you've landed in the right place as we have successfully secured employment for a range of account managers across the North West since our launch.

The skills you'll need to be successful in this area include the following:

  • You will need to develop and maintain relationships with clients and key stakeholders within businesses. These types of people will have a range of personalities so outstanding interpersonal skills are essential (as is a lot of patience!)
  • Understanding objectives and KPI's and how they fit into overall strategy is a skill that you'll develop over the time as an account manager
  •  Having an independent and reliable persona is a great foundation for success in this area
  • Having the ability to expand your technical knowledge of the disciplines of the accounts you manage without actually having hands on experience is a usual facet of this role.

The organisations we work with range from advertising agencies who work with global blue chip clients offering relatively sophisticated products through to agencies managing clients who solely invest their budget into search based campaigns. If it's client side account management you are looking for, these are rarer in the sense of "Account Manager" as their business would need to be structured like that e.g. a travel company with various airline clients and car hire suppliers who will need account managing.

Account Manager Positions across the North West are in high supply. This is due to the fact that in an emerging digital marketing sector, many of the all round account managers have specialised in fields such as search marketing. This has seen a reduction in these account managers and now we're experiencing a senior skills gap in this area. This will ultimately mean that the right candidate who operates in this area will have the opportunity to progress well in their career in the region.

TESTIMONIALS

I have recently had the pleasure of working with Laura at The Candidate where she helped me find a role in Manchester. Laura was really hands on, was always on the end of the phone to advise and chat me through the process. She was incredibly helpful, professional and just generally lovely to work with, so it made the whole experience very easy.
