Position Summary

The role sits within Rapport International – a team of 4, responsible for working on clients across IPG/Mediabrands/Rapport business, predominantly with Universal McCann and Initiative, but also with other agencies within the wider IPG Group, e.g. Mullen Lowe, McCann, Sticky Eyes, Brooks Brothers etc, and non-group agencies too.

The International team consists of 4 members and after a period of expansion to accommodate recent business wins, we are looking to consolidate the overall team resource with this appointment.

Working as part of a team of 4, the International Account Manager's role is to ensure effective and innovative OOH solutions are delivered to our clients, along with outstanding service levels at all times. The AM is required to manage client campaigns from brief through to post-campaign analysis, with a view to developing their OOH knowledge and planning expertise.

Desired Skills & Experience

  • Good attention to detail.
  • Good communication skills.

  • A flair for project and time management.
  • Good problem-solving skills.
  • Good working knowledge of all Microsoft programmes (PowerPoint, Word, Excel etc.).
  • Good interpersonal skills.
