Senior Account Manager – Doha, Qatar - 30-35k (tax free) / 15-17,000 QAR/month
Fancy leaving Blighty for somewhere a little bit more exotic? Then this could be the perfect opportunity for you. The Middle East’s most successful and most awarded marketing agency is looking for a Senior Account Manager to join their team.
Working alongside a senior creative team and an account manager, you will take the lead across a number of the agency’s regional Qatari clients. You will report into the MD (based out of Dubai but with weekly visits to Qatar) and oversee the work of a Senior Account Executive/Account Manager. You will be a strong project manager, with a real handle on the commercial side of account management. You will work on all campaigns from concept to completion, so candidates must be used to dealing with the whole process. This means candidates who are currently working at large advertising agencies across adaptations of big ideas will not be considered.
With the Qatari office being merely 3 years old, you will be one of the more senior members of staff here and it is the intention of the agency bosses for this role to become the Account Director or Client Services Director further down the line (no-one will be hired above you). As a result, you must be a competent and experienced SAM, with the experience of working across a range of media, not just one specialism. You will work across a real variety of media and campaigns, from digital and mobile applications to experiential events and above-the-line ad campaigns.
You will join a large British and European ex-pat community in Qatar, a country that is becoming very anglicised. You will enjoy a great standard of living, with no taxes to pay, making the salary on offer the equivalent to 40k+ in the UK. On top of this, you will also receive an annual bonus, which grows with the length of service you have put in. You will be helped with your visa and relocation costs, and will also have your flights paid for interview purposes.
This is a fantastic agency, the most awarded in the Middle East and ‘Digital Agency of the Year 2013’ and an unmissable opportunity for anyone really looking to further their career and add some excitement!
