Flipbook is a creative production studio specialising in animation and visual effects. Based in Manchester city centre, Flipbook produces CG animation, 2D animation, live film visual effects and other post-production services to the video games, broadcast and advertising industries.
We’re looking for a driven and effective Business Developer/Account Manager to take Flipbook to a new level. You will be in charge of driving new business from a database of UK and international advertising and media agencies as well as developing and successfully selling our services to new and existing client bases. Although an existing database will be supplied, candidates with their own book of contacts within advertising or brands will be considered favourably.
A good knowledge of the advertising and animation industry is preferred but not essential and a strong interest in animation, visual effects, film making and digital technology would also be advantageous.
You will be a public face of an exciting, progressive and creative company, representing the company’s public profile in a friendly and dynamic manner. Given the breadth of our client base, you are expected to be able to sell confidently in the creative environments in which we work. You will work directly with the managing director on the growth, development and maintenance of the company’s client base; developing the core proposition of the company, its PR requirements and attending relevant events.
The candidate should ideally possess a good Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing, Business Administration or any relevant field with more than 2 years of experience in Sales and Marketing preferably with proven track-record in a similar role in the Media Industry.
Possess engaging and highly effective inter-personal skills that cultivate and grow lasting business relationships both internally and externally, with a strong grasp of the English language (both written and verbal).
