We are looking for an account executive to start their agency experience.
At bbd we offer the opportunity to work with some of the world’s biggest brands in a close-knit team at one of the UK’s top independent creative agencies.
What you’ll be doing…
As an Account Exec your role and the part you play in the team, is pivotal to our success with clients. Clients can be fickle, disorganised and bloody hard work. But our Account Exec position is about supporting the Account Manager and Account Director, maintaining positive client relationships, supporting projects through the agency.
You will be at the coal face where all the action happens, helping to decipher the brief and provide hands-on support in all the tasks that ultimately make ideas on a piece of paper come to life.
You will work with a small skilled team headed up by your Account Director. The team are driven to deliver the best to our clients, and as part of that team you will be responsible for ensuring the integrity of the briefs, the quality of our delivery and the financials of the accounts.
You will need to be personable, highly motivated, and ambitious with a desire to impress and make people smile. You should be able to organize your own time, spin multiple plates with a keen eye for detail and not be afraid to roll your sleeves up and get involved.
You will be responsible for…
Supporting your Account Manager to deliver on day-to-day tasks.
Developing creative and technical briefs with your team, planning and technical teams
Support in keeping financial planning, status reports and project plans up to date.
Drafting cost plans
Scheduling studio resource
Briefing & copy-checking
Handling client feedback through studio
Site testing & CMS uploads
And generally making our clients smile
Experience and responsibilities needed…
A background in marketing, advertising or communications (through work, study or play) would be preferable and agency experience is a bonus.
You must be confident writing professional communications, handling enquiries over the phone and be generally familiar with standard office programmes (Excel, PowerPoint etc.)
Beyond that – if you wake up every morning and think “how can I be better than yesterday, and how can I deliver something that knocks my clients’ socks off today” then we are interested.
