OK, let’s cut to the chase

As a SAM, you’re the machine that keeps things going; the driver and motivator of the team below and the person that gets things done. The back-bone of account management; and passionate about creating award-worthy work, you’ll drive best-in-class client services and develop awesome relationships so you’re viewed as their go-to person.

Day-to-day the role is both strategically challenging and delivery focused, so you must be able to flex with the needs of the client and account. On the strategy side, you’ll be working across projects that use our proprietary research tools to drive insight-led pieces of work that illuminate client requirements, and advise on both marketing strategy (instore and ecommerce) and activation (instore, OOH, POS etc).

You’ll be working a well-known alcohol brand, so if you’ve worked in this space before, that would be ideal. We’d like someone with strong integrated experience, and an ATL core. The role is both creative and strategic, so if that is what you’re looking for, read on.

You’ll be able to think both commercially and strategically, and be growing your skills, knowledge, and ideas in this area. You’ll report into an Account Director and potentially manage a more junior team. It’s an exciting time to join the team!

What we’re looking for from you:

  • Direct integrated experience of retail marketing; both TTL and ATL (shopper, POS, OOH etc)
  • Experience of developing super strong client relationships
  • Strategic thinker, able to think and work outside-of-the-box
  • Able to get under the skin of the clients projects, so you become indispensable
  • Be totally comfortable presenting to the client; happy to show them some wow!
  • Experience of working directly with an in-house creative team to design print campaigns
  • Able to spot opps to develop new projects; feeding back to your senior team
  • Be on top of your numbers and billing, drive productivity across the junior team
  • Have a solid awareness of the clients growth plans & objectives
  • Support the senior team to devise campaign strategies
