Advertising Account Manager

Location: Cardiff / hybrid working (in the office Mon, Wed and Thurs)
Salary: Negotiable (dependent on experience)

Are you a super-organised (Senior) Account Manager with a passion for positive impact advertising and campaigns? Are you looking to step up or perhaps just ready for a change? Join SBW ‘For the good stuff’.

With at least 2 years’ Advertising Agency/ industry relevant experience and a proven track record in working on complex campaigns and digital projects, you will work with internal and external partners to deliver national comms campaign plans against SMART objectives, accurately, on time and on budget. This will include, for example, day-to-day communication with the client with project WIP updates, liaising with media and working with our creative and third-party partners such as filmmakers to produce film and campaign assets to run across above the line (TV, radio, OOH) and through the line media (digital, social, direct marketing, events, email).

– You’ll ideally have 2+ years’ solid experience agency-side, managing client accounts autonomously (we are also keen to hear from people with relevant transferable experience).

– With solid project management skills, you’ll be a true problem solver versed in working collaboratively with teams to successfully deliver project and campaign plans; working with your Account Director to ensure campaign plans remain on track and align with pre-defined strategic goals.

– You will have experience liaising with internal creative and studio teams and external partners such as film/radio production, research agencies and media.

– A team player through and through, you will always look to support and develop your team, as well as assisting the Account Directors developing proposals for clients, or helping out colleagues in other offices during busy times.

– You will be comfortable working in a deadline driven environment, being resilient and calm under pressure with a positive influence on those around you.

– With strong commercial awareness, you’ll confidently lead on budget discussions with clients, ensuring account profitability while delivering value to clients.

– You will be brilliant at building long-lasting, meaningful relationships with clients and partners.

– Developing an in-depth understanding of SBW’s expertise and services, you’ll be able to spot opportunities within your existing accounts, making relevant recommendations (including reaching out and bringing in specialisms within the team and at times externally) to provide best advice and solutions.

– Genuinely interested in positive impact marketing and advertising, you will proactively look out for latest sector trends and inspiring creative campaigns (both our industry as well as your clients’) with a willingness to learn and share helpful and inspiring knowledge.

So, what will you be working on?

At SBW, we create, develop and implement positive impact campaigns that change the way people think – for the better. We’re For the Good Stuff, so most of our work is centred around behaviour change or awareness building and as a lot of our clients are public sector, our contracts tend to run over several years, meaning you can really get under the skin of a project and make a real impact.

Whether it’s supporting Wales hit NetZero with our Climate Action Wales campaign, helping parents with finances and advice, fighting hate crime or growing businesses with Business Wales, our work makes a positive impact. We’ve had over 8 years of consistent growth, we’re financially secure and we’re winning lots of awards (including the Drum Roses and nominations for the Purpose awards), it really couldn’t be a better time to join our growing team.

A short commute from the City Centre, our Cardiff Bay office is less than five minutes walking distance from the Millennium Centre and Mermaid Quay Waterfront. Here, you will find a wide range of bars, restaurants and cafes, as well as arts and entertainment to enjoy during the lunch break or when out with the team during our social events.

In return we offer:

– Competitive salary + tax free profit share bonus scheme (up to twice a year when you have been with us for over one year)
– Hybrid-working (Monday, Wednesday and Thursday in the office/ then Tuesday and Friday working from home)
– Socials & annual events (including a dedicated monthly allowance for each office)
