Reporting to Zeal’s Head of Client Services, you’ll be at the forefront of client communication. Duties will include:
- Managing client relationships, communicating with their teams on a regular basis: through email, phone and running face-to-face meetings.
- Working with the Head of Client Services to set and develop client strategies, and to identify new opportunities for client growth and up-selling. This will be achieved through gaining a full understanding of the agency offering so potential new routes for exploration can be recognised and explained to the client.
- Coordinating Zeal’s internal team for the client and overseeing execution of work: acting as the ‘glue’, ensuring everything is properly communicated between all parties, actions are followed-up and work is delivered on-schedule and to a high standard.
- Being accountable for client results and taking responsibility in ensuring we’re delivering what we set out to achieve. This will involve taking a lead role in the collation and production of client documentation, such as monthly presentations and results – plus ensuring you are kept up-to-date with the overall progress of client work throughout the campaign.
- Scoping – from gathering requirements to writing user stories, the role will be hands-on in leading client briefs to identify the most feasible solution to meet their objectives.
- Ensuring we are providing our clients with the ‘cherry on top’: giving them value-added insight, work and research. This also involves showing our clients some love and ensuring they feel appreciated and valued to Zeal.
What Are We Looking For?
- A minimum of 3 years digital agency experience that includes management of clients and website build projects
- Outstanding client service, communication and organisational skills
- Exceptional attention to detail
- A good understanding and experience of the digital marketing channels that Zeal offers
- A creative thinker – someone who will be integral to encouraging cross-agency collaboration in the pursuit of creative and stand-out work for clients
- Driven, pro-active and ‘can-do’ attitude
- Passion for delivering results
- Natural commercial judgement and accountability
In return, we offer great benefits, including flexible core working hours, pension scheme, regular socials and company trips, charity work involvement, The Zeal Bucket list, and much more.
Our Account Managers play a crucial role, and with that comes a huge opportunity for the right person to make a significant impact – both on their own career and for Zeal too. With that in mind, it’s massively important to find someone who has the right mix of enthusiasm and know-how to help drive us forward.
Hope to hear from you soon!
