A talented Account Manager is needed to join a leading PR and Communications agency with offices in London and Oxford. This is a rare opportunity for an Account Manager to either join their superb team in Oxford or to help set up and establish their new London office (you choose).

Employing a message first approach, this PR and Communications agency is renowned for delivering campaigns that create real momentum and tangible results for clients within the global renewable energy, financial services and maritime markets. As a part of this, they have developed and built a rapidly expanding international membership platform for renewable energy investors. Due to continued success they are now seeking an Account Manager with the drive and determination to join their small, talented team.

Taking a hands-on approach, the Account Manager will be responsible for the development and delivery of high-profile campaigns whilst overseeing the development of client communications and collateral (ranging from press releases to website copy). Whether you are liaising with senior client personnel; managing campaign activity; spotting opportunities; securing national coverage; discussing content and sharing ideas with clients; designing and implementing impactful events or engaging key stakeholders it will be your ability to manage multiple projects that ensures outstanding results for clients.

To qualify… You should be an Account Manager / PR Account Manager / SAM / Senior Account Manager / Client Services Manager / Communications Manager / Marketing Campaign Manager or similar who is looking for rapid career progression, with a CV that demonstrates:

  • Account Management experience (agency or in house, we don’t mind);
  • You are an excellent writer and communicator;
  • Experience of managing communication campaigns;
  • The ability to manage international projects to deadline;
  • Knowledge of business-to-business (B2B) PR and communication techniques;
  • Strong IT and analytical skills, with a keen interest in digital;
  • The ability to develop strong internal and external relationships;
  • Good negotiating skills and discretion;
  • An understanding of wider marketing, basic budgeting, and campaign planning;
  • You are curious and willing to learn. Our client encourages you to ask questions, read, learn from mistakes and grow together with the company;
  • Flexibility and the willingness for occasional travel (UK and International).
An interest in renewable energy, maritime and financial services markets would be a bonus as would a Hubspot-certificate or training.

If you can write like a dream and are looking for a place where you’ll tackle big problems alongside some of the most dynamic and resourceful people you’ve ever worked, in a fantastic culture where you are encouraged to suggest ideas and get involved then this might just be the role for you!
