About the Role

As Senior Account Manager, you’ll have experience of managing a wide range of search campaigns and be always up-to-date with the digital industry, in particular, SEO, PPC, and CRO.

Reporting to our Head of Client services, you will manage and maintain long-term relationships between the business and its customers within an assigned portfolio of accounts. The Senior Account Manager will ensure all designated client accounts and those of direct reports are managed effectively and efficiently from a relationship, resourcing, operational and commercial perspective. You will take a commercial lead on several key client accounts and play a pivot role in meeting departmental targets.

You will be the go-to person on your client accounts, meaning that you’ll need to develop strong external relationships with clients, and internally with Technical, Content, Digital PR, CRO, and PPC colleagues reporting into you on specific campaigns.

You will need to be an excellent communicator and good at managing multiple projects, expectations, and stakeholders at once, to achieve maximum client success.
