If you’ve ever wanted to work with the likes of Pokemon, Viacom, Universal, Royal Caribbean, Amazon and a whole list of other household name clients and do high-end, strategic work that has a direct impact on their business then this might be the job for you.

At KI we partner with the very best global (and local) businesses spanning start-ups to market leaders, to build their family-focused brands into world beaters. Our business is growing very rapidly and it is an incredibly exciting time - really, really. And that’s why we need to bolster our multi-award winning team with either an Account or Senior Account Manager to be a significant part of our future.

We need someone permanently, but if you’re an excellent freelancer then don’t be shy of reading on:

You will work closely with all levels within the agency to support day to day management of clients, from shaping creative briefs, scoping complex budgets, resourcing, briefing creatives through to pitching and identifying opportunities.

We’d love someone to establish themselves as the key go-to person for their clients, managing expectations, advising on insight, strategy and creative whilst building exceptionally trusted partnerships.

Through your tight-knit client relationships and by using your natural commercial awareness, you'll be able to organically identify opportunities for development and drive growth - but not just any growth. We’re very serious about our purpose and our values. We work with family brands after all.

Whilst you'll be heavily client-facing, you'll absolutely get stuck in with project planning and management of work spanning insight, branding, experiential, strategy, print, digital and consultancy work.

Using your previous network, you'll be able to evolve the current supplier list and know when to bring in new resources and who to call on to deliver high quality services

SO, WHAT SORT OF EXPERIENCE DO WE NEED?

  • You will likely have spent 3 -5 years managing clients in the marketing services sector and none of the following will make you in the least bit uncomfortable:
  • Growing clients across both service breadth and depth through excellence
  • Direct accountability for revenue and gross margin
  • A strong understanding of the marketing industry and disciplines
  • Managing multi-vendor, multi-stakeholder, multi-national clients
  • Ability to translate strategic business objectives and communicating them
  • Strong general account management and client service skills  
  • Preparation of proposals and budgets
  • Ongoing campaign management - analytics and KPI measurement
  • Managing project timelines and deliverables
  • Strong ability to build lasting and trusting relationships
  • Someone who enjoys being pushed in new directions and working outside their comfort zone.
