Digital Account Manager

We are looking for an experienced agency Account Manager to lead and grow existing client relationships, whilst overseeing a team of account execs tasked with supporting day to day client requests. This is a pivotal role within the agency.

The Company

Quba is a mid-size, technology and design agency based in Sheffield. Our sweet spot is a combination of marketing and technical delivery. We’re a fun bunch of designers, techies and marketing types who support a long list of high profile clients and we’re always on the lookout for exceptional people to join our team.

Our quirky offices in the centre of Sheffield are located within a converted Victorian church school. Qubans are expected to work hard but get rewarded handsomely. As well as monthly pizza and beer evenings we have a lively lunchtime crowd who play PS4 and pool. If you’re not the competitive type there are loads of cafes and shops nearby.

Away from work all Quban’s enjoy a company funded healthcare cash plan, pension scheme and up to 30 paid holiday days per year. Everyone is encouraged to reach their potential and a number of our senior staff have risen through the company by taking advantage of Quba funded training and development opportunities.
