ACCOUNT EXECUTIVE

£23K a year
 

The account you'll be working for is one of DDB Worldwide’s largest and most prestigious.

The adam&eveDDB office in London is the regional base for our work in Europe, Africa and the Middle East and almost all the account’s work is planned and executed here. The brand you’ll be most familiar with in this Zone spans over 10 markets and is worked on by a dedicated team of over 25 people; there is great team spirit and a genuinely supportive way of working.

 

The account delivers fully integrated campaigns, providing marketing solutions from ATL advertising to promotions, POS, eCRM, Digital, social and internal communications. Unlike some accounts, it is truly full service, with the ability (and responsibility) to influence construction of the marketing tactics through to in-market execution.

 

In essence we are looking for an inspirational individual, who is passionate about effective creative, is keen to learn about the opportunities and realities of working on global business, and who will be excited by the challenge of developing their skills on a fast paced international account.

 

So, what's the job?

The candidates will mainly be working on communications through a mix of channels including fully integrated campaigns spanning POS, Digital and traditional ATL media. However, as the account is fully integrated, there will also be opportunities to work on other more direct channels including email and SMS.

Key Responsibilities:

Key Responsibilities will include mainly delivering and managing integrated communications across multiple markets on a very fast paced account. Day to day responsibilities of the role include, but are not limited to:

  • Management of cost estimate construction and approval.

  • Briefing creative teams (with support from senior team members).

  • Liaison with all Client Services departments.

  • Construction of client presentations with the Agency’s creative recommendations (with support from senior team members).

  • Artwork crafting and review with senior team members.

  • Final copy checking before Client submission.

  • Management of translations.

  • Management of Client approvals.

  • Status reports for use internally and with the client.

  • Liaison with partner agencies (media, data, etc.), local DDB offices and 3rd party suppliers.

  • Management of Legal & Public Affairs approvals (client side) prior to production.

  • Input to project financial reconciliations.

  • Construction of client presentations which outline a full production plan. 

Essential Experience:

As it is an entry level position, any experience is a bonus:

  • Exposure to multiple channels including POS and integrated experience would be a benefit.

  • Experience of playing a supportive role within a dynamic account team.

  • Ability to multi task, strong time management and attention to detail is absolutely essential.

  • Financial understanding: the role is responsible for cost estimation and full financial admin of projects (PO through to invoice and any final project reconciliation). It is essential to be buttoned down and view financial admin as an integral part of project management.

  • Technical expertise: an understanding of the process to produce communications would be beneficial.

  • Strong proficiency in: Excel, Word and PowerPoint.

Essential Skills/Competencies:

As an adam&eveDDB Account Executive you will make things happen: perfect execution, on time, every time. Working with project management you'll make sure everything happens on time and to budget.
