Liquid is looking for an experienced PR professional, either an experienced account manager looking to take the next step or an established account director looking for a new challenge.
You will have at least six years’ experience in PR/marketing consultancy, as well as a proven track-record of success in managing and delivering client programmes. You are a good networker, enjoy bringing in new business opportunities and winning new business pitches. As an Account Director at Liquid, you will play a central role in managing the relationship with some clients, with others you will have supervisory responsibility.
Liquid expects its Account Directors to act as a source of new thinking and new ideas, always keeping a step ahead. You will know a lot about your clients’ business sectors and are able, whenever you meet them, to give them information they don’t possess. You will have a history of being seen as a “trusted advisor” with your clients.
The successful candidate will be keen to make a mark in the industry, attending professional events, confident in giving talks to your colleagues and other audiences – schools, business groups, community associations.
As an Account Director, you will have experience in managing and supporting members of a team. You know more than they do about integrated communications (the PESO model) and evaluation; you have long experience of resolving client/agency challenges and are ready to give advice and, where necessary, intervene. You will have experience in keeping a watchful eye on your teams’ workloads and providing support where needed – never being afraid to roll up your sleeves and get involved.
As well as becoming part of a vibrant hardworking team, Liquid employees receive 25 days holiday (plus bank holidays) and an additional day to celebrate their birthday. Each year we get everyone together for a weekend away. It’s a great way to relax and get to know each other better, and we find that we work better together as a result. In 2019, we visited our colleagues in Jersey and enjoyed oyster foraging and a rib-boat trip to France for dinner.
And there’s a £1,000 bonus if you apply to us direct (Ts & Cs apply – see here for details).
