ACCOUNT MANAGER or SENIOR ACCOUNT MANAGER
BAGGI is a brand design consultancy located west of London, near Beaconsfield. We create brands with soul, alive with possibility, inspiration and human spirit and we are looking for people who can grow, think, do and create.
WHO WE ARE LOOKING FOR
We’re looking for an Account Manager or Senior Account Manager who wants a little more flexibility to find the right work/life balance. An all-rounder with at least two years’ experience in a brand design studio or creative agency, a passion for creating great work for a variety of interesting clients and the desire for independence and to grow. You will have the personality and gravitas to build strong relationships, freed from inflexible processes and structural hierarchy and with absolutely no ego to boot. This is also a great opportunity to help to grow a business and its culture from the grass roots.
Initially we’re looking for freelance and offer flexible, hybrid working. Some travel within London & the South-East. If that sounds like what you’re looking for, read on >
WHAT YOU WILL WORK ON
You will lead different workstreams, often independently, building strong relationships with clients and being responsible for the day-to-day management and delivery of projects. You will work with the BAGGI team from strategy through to concept, development and activation across key channels. Juggling different projects at the same time, you will be required to maintain good communication and plan with a clear focus on setting the team up for success.
You will need to communicate and discuss concepts and plans to various internal and external audiences regularly. You’ll also be responsible for taking feedback from various stakeholders and drive the development of work to ensure that it is delivered on time and budget.
Our clients operate in both the consumer and corporate brand worlds: from charity to retail, place branding to plant-based foods. You could be working on a number of these including any exciting new business opportunities we have.
WHO YOU WILL WORK WITH
You will report to the founder and day-to-day you’ll collaborate with designers, writers and strategists. You will also work with and commission other creative specialists in illustration, photography, typography, animation and film.
Naturally you will work very closely with clients, providing an independent, trusted voice, whilst at the same feeling like part of the client’s team. You may also need to work with the client’s other partner agencies that specialise in different disciplines.
