Account Manager (Content)

Permanent

As experts in engagement, we help companies and organisations engage with their audiences through digital and print communications. 

We’re looking for an accomplished all-round communications professional with a strong journalistic pedigree and you’ll be excited by a job that offers variety and a constant opportunity to develop. You will be:

  • Planning and producing digital and print communication channels, including videos, animations, infographics and magazines.
  • Planning and building multi-channel campaigns, some of which are in multiple languages.
  • Devising and crafting engaging content for social channels.
  • Editing content for multiple platforms.
  • Developing long-term relationships with clients, becoming a trusted partner and advisor.
  • Part of a great team of journalists, editors and account managers.
  • Be able to communicate confidently with a wide range of stakeholders.
  • Entrepreneurial, ready and able to spot an opportunity to develop our accounts, and have the tenacity to see every job through to its conclusion.
  • An exceptional project manager with superb people skills.
  • Able to think strategically yet not be afraid to roll up your sleeves and get on with the award-winning work we produce for our clients.

Ideally, we would like you to have some knowledge of Adobe InDesign and proficiency in Microsoft Office. However, training will be provided. An understanding of social media platforms would also be a distinct advantage.

At present, you will likely be a journalist or account manager in an agency and be seeking a fresh opportunity.

An attractive salary and package of benefits, which includes healthcare, bonus and pension, is on offer to the right candidate. In the short term, the role will be home based because of Covid-19 restrictions but longer term the role will be based in our office in Paisley.
