Account Manager - Digital Marketing Agency

United Kingdom
£35,000 to £50,000
Job Type
4 Nov 2021
This is a new additional role in an innovative paid digital marketing agency that's going places - with the capacity to work from a home office. They have an increasing global spread of B2B clients, many in North America, who get great value by making sure that their paid Amazon advertising is in the right place, at the right time, pointing to the right audience - it's a niche with a lot of scope. This new role is to cement new accounts, understand what they need and build them. This agency was 6 strong a year ago, but they're now 20 and still growing, fuelled by the move to online sales in the last year or so. If you don't have a depth of understanding about Amazon Ads, training is provided. A broad understanding of digital marketing and the capacity to understand customer needs is more important.
This agency knows exactly what it takes to get their clients Amazon advertising working harder and performing better. It can deliver lots of value that's not always well understood in the broader market. It's your job to understand client's business needs and translate those into proposals and programmes that work for them
New accounts are arriving in a consistent stream through the business development team, and the agency needs to make them feel welcome, keep track of their needs, and help them increase their online sales - that's where you come in. Your research, questioning and analytical skills will help understand client key messages and audiences, and identify what works to drive profitable outcomes. You'll optimise the account and look for new opportunities. You'll also be making recommendations, giving advice and providing evidence that Amazon is the way ahead
You'll be talking with a real mix of clients in terms of their sectors and scale. Your communication needs to be crystal clear so they know what's going on and how you can help them. All clients turnover more than £1m per annum , and you can be talking to a Digital Marketing Manager in Los Angeles one moment, and a business owner in Coventry the next. Their Croydon office offers you a window on the world.
This is a team effort. Everybody needs everybody else. There are no prima donnas. Just incredible people pulling together.
You understand the digital marketing landscape and have a contemporary view of the online advertising. If you're familiar with Amazon ads, but need training to be better, it'll be provided, and if you're great at digital marketing, but not touched Amazon ads before, you'll get more training. If you have strong understanding of the principles, Amazon expertise can be developed.
You're also familiar with consultative sales and good with unscripted conversations. Your strengths lie in asking great open questions and the discipline of outstanding follow-up and leaving no stone unturned. You're curious and inquisitive by nature, and know this isn't about one-hit wonders, but about consistent and reliable results that give the client reasons to come back for more.
Teamwork and togetherness form the glue that makes this team work so well.
The offices are in Croydon. It's a 40-hour week, but the working day can flex depending where in the world you're calling, and you can work this role from home, with just one day a month to be spend in the main office in Croydon.
Starting annual basic salary will be in the region of £35k, and that will increase as you build your portfolio. On top there's a commission scheme that should take your earnings to £50k in year one, and between £70k and £100k in year two as your confidence, skills and client relationships grow.
Martin Ellis at Recruitment South East will perform screening and initial interviews before candidates are selected for interview by the company. They'll be 2 interviews, firstly with the Operations Manager, then the main Director as well as completing a short online psychometric assessment
