Junior Account Manager - Creative/Marketing Agencies, Business Development, Account Executive

Hello! Allow myself to introduce… Myself…

We are The Future Factory, one of the UK’s leading business development consultancies for creative agencies. We specialise in helping our agencies get a foot in the door of their dream brands, win these dreamy clients and grow their business. We are now opening our doors in Manchester to service the agencies of the north and we are looking for the best talent this city has to offer to join our new start-up branch of The Future Factory.

Cool story bro, but what does the job actually entail?

Each of our Account Managers (that’s you) work with 2/3 agencies of the PR, digital, design, marketing or comms variety. After developing a deep understanding of the industry and your agency’s unique propositions, you (along with your account team) will contact their dream brands with a view to setting up valuable introductions between Sir Brand and Lady Agency, both over the phone and via email.
You and the team will work behind the scenes on your agency’s new business and marketing strategy – figuring out, which industries they should target, what types of brands we should approach on their behalf and how to help them stand out from the competitive landscape of the WHOLE OF THE UK.

As well as working in our tight, start-up hub in Manchester, you’ll spend up to 3 days a month working from each of your agency’s offices, absorbing their culture and mingling with some of the best creative minds in the UK.

Who are we looking for?

Cap & Gown? Speak the queens? Not afraid to pick up the phone? Interested in the wonderful world of agencies and brands?
Fabulous, that’s exactly the kind of egg we’re looking for – YOU’RE HIRED!

Are there perks?

You bet your ass there are perks. You’ll get a tip-top and shiny Macbook Air of your very own, we have monthly team outings (boozy mini-golf, escape rooms and African drumming therapy to name but a few), and to top it all off you get to work in a new team at Manchesters first, Future Factory Team.

Monetary bits and bobs

Salary is £18-22k (depending on experience) + £3200 in bonuses in your first year.
We’re personable people who love people with cracking personalities, so if you’re the person for us get in touch! A big part of the job is approaching brands in unique and interesting ways, so show us what you’ve got in your cover letter.

Oh, and no need to wear a suit, shoulder pads or matching socks!!
