CounterContext

We have an opportunity for an experienced Account Manager to join our team of communication professionals to work on some of the most exciting property and infrastructure projects in Sheffield, across the UK and around the world.
We are looking for someone who is confident, positive, enthusiastic and hardworking. We want someone who likes making decisions, enjoys making things happen and feels at ease when coordinating different activities. You will be confident planning your own work but you will also like dealing with the curve balls and challenges that always occur in a busy agency.
You will have proven experience of developing and managing client, stakeholder and media relationships. You will have a solid understanding of communication and consultation practice and approaches. You should have impeccable written and communication skills and be comfortable liaising face-to-face with members of the public and senior stakeholders.
Ideally you will be educated to degree level in a related subject and/or have 3-5 years’ experience of either working for a comparable agency or in an in-house role in communications, stakeholder engagement or consultation. A sound background in project management and knowledge of the planning system would be helpful.
The Role
Your role will involve:
• Working with our Account Directors to design stakeholder engagement, consultation and PR strategies and activities across a range of client projects
• Leading on the delivery of these strategies, including client liaison, stakeholder analysis, managing the production of communication materials (print and digital), consultation analysis and reporting
• Managing and organising consultation events, exhibitions and briefings
• Developing and managing media relationships for clients both locally and nationally
• Managing project budgets and outsourced suppliers
• Contributing to proposal documents and pitches for potential client projects
• Staying well informed about new trends and best practice in PR and engagement and imparting this knowledge to the wider Account Management team.

The Offer
You will be based in Sheffield but a frequent visitor to our office in Manchester. You will enjoy a competitive salary, pension scheme and slice of our profit-sharing scheme. You’ll receive plenty of coaching, mentoring and training. You’ll receive a minimum of 21 days annual leave excluding Bank Holidays.
Your salary will be consistent with your skills and experience. Suffice to say we know how important it is to invest in good people and ensure that hard work is rewarded well.
About Us
We are a fast moving, networked and ambitious agency. Every day is different. We want to have a lasting and positive impact on Sheffield and the North of England by supporting projects that strengthen our economy and communities. We work hard individually and together. Our team know how to get things done but also how to have fun. We raise money for Sheffield Children’s Hospital because we care. We set out to walk 75KM in 24 hours because it sounds like a challenge. We decide to arrange a work night out in Stockholm because…well why not?
Sound interesting? Sound challenging? Sound like your potential next step? We’d love to hear from you.
