Our client is a boutique restaurant/food communications agency in the UK. They are now seeking an Account Manager with restaurant/food experience. The agency is based in central London and operates across the UK. Restaurant experience would be a huge bonus but failing that consumer food and drink background would be incredibly useful.
The agency is a fun place to work but it’s incredibly busy and you need to be organised and used to juggling multiple accounts. You need to have excellent press contacts and creativity as well as the ability to multi-task.
The culture is exciting, professional and fun, and they believe strongly in career development, which can be seen from their strong retention rate.
You will have the opportunity to be invited to some great launches, events and restaurants, and the Account Manager is a key member of the team working on and managing a portfolio of clients. The Account Manager will make a strong contribution to key business objectives through B2B and consumer campaigns and support the Account Director with the management of clients.
You will have;
- Proven track record and experience in the restaurant sector
- A great black book of media contacts
- A nose for a great story
- Digital skills
- Strong writing skills
- Managing all the day-to-day client activity
- Implement campaigns to deliver press coverage
- Client liaison
- Selling in bigger features and news stories to the media
- Social media
- Managing monthly reports and updates
This is just a great place to work with a really strong team dynamic.
