HAVAS LYNX is a global communications group, formed from Creative Lynx and Havas 4D, leading digital agencies in Europe and the USA respectively. With 250 employees and supported by the wider HAVAS network, we deliver truly global campaigns based on robust local insight. As a group we have been responsible for a series of industry firsts in social media, closed-loop marketing and mobile. We actively partner with Apple, Microsoft, Facebook, Stanford Persuasive Tech Lab and Practice Fusion and these partnerships facilitate our ability to innovate on behalf of our clients across the healthcare, education and culture sectors. Blending this innovation with sector insight and design pedigree, our team of over 140 professionals, based in the heart of Manchester city centre comprise our European head office, from which we work closely with colleagues in London and New York.
We are looking for someone who has solid agency experience and who absolutely loves seeking out and pursuing new opportunities. You should be confident in establishing and maintaining relationships - within this role you will pitch and work to drive new business from potential clients and also existing accounts across the commercial, education, culture and charity sectors, therefore strong communication and presentation skills are crucial.
You will be working on the delivery of fully integrated communications campaigns and this role offers a balance of development of client strategy with hands on delivery, working with internal teams to ensure that work delivered is of the highest possible quality, from the point of view of both creativity and innovation. We’d like to hear from Account Managers who have already gained agency experience, ideally with some exposure to digital although you can expect to further your skills here. Experience of handling a number of projects at any one time is key, and you should be equally comfortable working independently as you are in team situations. You should be happy and experienced in leading campaign brainstorming and creative meetings.
We’re looking for a real team player with lots of initiative, enthusiasm and energy. You'll be decisive, dedicated, committed and calm under pressure, possessing a real eye for detail - we’re looking for applications from Account Managers who describe themselves as perfectionists! This is a busy and varied role, suitable for someone who is looking for a long term position, an opportunity to learn, develop and progress their career.
