Spark career blog – Account Manager
Do you want to be an Account Manager? Do you eat KPIs for breakfast? Can you make clients feel like they’re the only clients in the world? Can you manage expectations with the skill of a circus tightrope walker? Are you looking for an agency that gives back every bit as much as you put in? Do you like table tennis?
About the job
Creative Spark is on the hunt for an experienced Account Manager for our Client Services Team. Join us, and you’ll get to sink your teeth into a client portfolio worth well over half a million pounds. Day to day, you’ll be establishing and maintaining strong client relationships, producing reports, dealing direct with our in-house creative, finance and sales teams, managing a whole range of campaign projects and actively seeking to both cross-sell and up-sell to clients.
You’ll be driven, well-organised, an excellent communicator and have a keen analytical eye. You’ll also be experienced in managing accounts for multiple clients, be well-versed in presenting at a senior management level, have a good working knowledge of Microsoft Excel and Google Spreadsheets and you’ll just intuitively get what it takes to develop rewarding client relationships. Working towards defined KPI’s will be second nature to you and you’ll be a quick study of clients, their products and their industry. You’ll also be interesting. We don’t do dull.
Creative Spark has offices in both the UK and the USA, but you’ll be based at our HQ in Manchester’s Northern Quarter. We’ve been going for ten years and have produced work for clients like the BBC, Universal Music, Asics, New Balance and both Manchester United and Manchester City (we’re an equal-opportunities employer). We’re young, vibrant, hard-working, down-to-earth and we take the time to take care of our own. We offer a competitive salary package alongside incentives like work-from-home Wednesdays, bonuses for bringing in new clients, a great social environment and, of course, an in-office table tennis table installed as standard.
