Due to Archant’s continual success and future growth we are eagerly seeking to appoint an Account Manager, working across London.
As the Account Manager for the area, you will be in regular consultation with an array of clients, providing advertising and marketing solutions on our portfolio of products. As well as managing existing relationships you will constantly seek out new clients to present Archant’s portfolio of print and digital advertising solutions.
The challenge for local media businesses to remain relevant to their core SME customers is significant. An integral part of the role is to build a strong business network of contacts by attending local events and becoming the face of local media advertising and a trusted advisor to these businesses.
The majority of your time is spent visiting clients, presenting our portfolio of products, learning and listening and providing credible consultations with businesses throughout the area. You will be supported by a manager in our Barking offices with daily communication and a weekly team meeting/1-1.
The challenging yet fulfilling role will really give you the chance to shine and develop existing long-term relationships to the next level. Alongside a professional sales approach, you must be able to communicate at all levels, as well as deliver complex presentations and host questions and answer sessions at board level.
