Senior Account Manager


Join the Sideshow team as a Senior Account Manager and work with a lovely bunch of people delivering great work across an impressive client list.

At Sideshow, we partner with some of the world’s most loved brands to help them realise what they can do. We bring together breakthrough strategic and creative thinking, and advanced technology knowledge, to deliver positive experiences for customers and value back to businesses.

 In 2018, The Drum ranked us seventh in the top 100 agencies as part of their Independent Agencies Census. And we topped out the league table of the 50 best digital agencies in the Wirehive 100. So, there’s never been a better time to join us.

 We’re looking for a Senior Account Manager to help look after a growing list of great clients, alongside a lovely bunch of people in one of the UK’s fastest growing independent agency groups.

As a Senior Account Manager, you’ll:

  • Get to know your clients’ businesses inside out, making sure our work delivers value and becoming the go-to person in the office for information on them.

  • Always have an ear on what clients say about us and our work, so we know we’re doing the right thing.

  • Spot opportunities and come up with ideas to help grow the account.

  • Delivery of work; from understanding the client brief and turning it into a brief for the creative teams, to checking work, sharing it with clients, and making sure we act fast on their feedback.

  • Own the detail of every job and be accountable for it.

  • Build up a rapport with your clients, becoming a trusted member of their extended team.

  • Be responsible for cost management and reporting for your clients; including forecasting, project reconciliation, cost/job estimations and invoicing.

  • Let clients know how projects are developing with consistent status updates.

  • Step up and fill in for the Account Director when necessary, both internally and with clients.

  • Know how to coordinate and work with third party suppliers.

In an increasingly connected and fast changing world we believe there is always more that brands can do for business. And that businesses can do for their customers. Finding the time to identify those opportunities and then deliver on them requires strong partnerships — and a ‘can do’ attitude.

 As well as being passionate, full of initiative and willing to get stuck in, if you’re our kind of person, you’ll:

  • Be confident and care about what we do, wanting to develop your career in an environment where no two days are the same.

  • Work well under pressure, being flexible where you need to, but always staying focussed and positive about the end goal.

  • Be curious about all things digital, marketing, content and social, with a range of experience across some or all of these.

  • Be well organised and a self-starter.

  • Be a confident written and verbal communicator, with a strong attention to detail and an eye for great design.

  • Care about delivering great work, be willing to go above and beyond.

You don’t have to have an agency background for this role, but it’s definitely a bonus if you do.
