Focus 5 are currently looking for an Account Manager to join our client, a multi-award-winning UK- based integrated B2B marketing agency with a range of industrial, scientific and technology clients as far afield as Canada and New Zealand.

This is an exciting opportunity for an Account Manager who wants to join a fun but focused environment, is passionate about building and maintaining relationships, and wants the opportunity to progress in a promising career.

The role offers plenty of opportunity to develop and progress. With ambitious growth plans after just moving into a new high-rise office in Manchester city centre, it’s an exciting time to join!

The Role:

Marketing activity for our clients runs across all channels, mainly digital with some offline also. The key responsibilities and requirements for the role are below:

  • A proactive personality, with an ability to work under your own initiative.
  • Supporting the Account Director with onboarding of new clients.

 

Experience:

  • 3-5 years’ experience of Account Management in a B2B agency is most preferable.
  • If you would like to make the move from a B2B in-house role, or a B2C agency, we would still love to hear from you.

  • 25 days holiday
  • Generous tailored training and development budget
