Havas Lynx is a global communications group, with offices in Manchester, London and New York. We operate within the healthcare and wellness sectors – our campaign activity sees us enhancing people’s lives via a variety of means, for example, by helping patients to understand their treatment options, by providing support to carers, or helping Healthcare Professionals and others within healthcare systems to make appropriate treatment decisions. Our sector is a challenging market place, but the potential for reward is unrivalled – the sense of genuinely making a difference is hugely motivating. Our Head Office is in the centre of Manchester and due to the team’s impact and their subsequent success, we’re pleased to be seeking an experienced Account Manager to join us.
We are looking for an established Account Manager – someone who has solid agency experience and who enjoys pursuing new opportunities. You might be working in a medical communications agency and want to use your experience in a more creative way. Or, you might be working in a consumer marketing agency, but want to work on meaningful and impactful campaigns. We’re looking for a confident, articulate and passionate Account Manager – you’ll have already gained some great agency experience, so you’ll be really good at building internal relationships and working with people to get things done. You’ll also be great on the client side, owning your own contacts and relationships and working with an Account Director as needed, but independently most of the time. More broadly, we’re looking for refined account management skills – you’ll be on top of your finances, happy delegating work to an executive, and both proactive and organised in your approach. We’re looking for someone with great presentation and written communication skills. When we make proposals for our clients these are considered, based on robust insight and inspirational; we’re looking for you to be confident presenting ideas whether that’s done verbally or in writing.
We’re lucky enough to have people in our teams with really varied skills
and expertise. You’ll work with incredible creatives, intelligent strategists and inspiring leaders. Your role will be to advise the client in the right way, along with your Account Director and then work to get the best from everyone whilst also keeping the project on track in terms of time and budget.
We’re looking for a real team player with lots of initiative, enthusiasm and energy. You’ll be calm under pressure with a real eye for detail – we’re looking for applications from Account Managers who describe themselves as perfectionists and whose friends would say they’re unflappable. We are incredibly proud to offer a structured career development plan here at Lynx. We invest heavily in the training and progression of our team members – you can view more details on our #LXAcademy programme at http://www.havaslynx.com/lx-academy/
