Your chance to come on board at an exciting time and take on a pivotal role for one of the UK's premier event agencies!

THE COMPANY
With a well-established base and fantastic experience within the industry this agency is going from strength to strength. With impressive and long established relationships they work across the board to produce and deliver a diverse scope of events including exhibitions, roadshows, incentive travel, activity days, dealer events and ride and drives to name a few.

Having reacted and adapted at tremendous speed to the recent events they are now at an exciting time in their development with the added addition of a new and versatile virtual studio space. Already with a strong uptake and with a broad and diverse range of clients utilising the space they are keen to capitalise on this and drive the business forward.

Now at an exciting point in their development and with ambitious plans for the future there has never been a better time to join this forward thinking agency.

THE ROLE
Due to recent developments they are now looking for an Account Director to come on board and take hold of and develop relationships coming into the business. A broad role responsibilities will include:

* Working closely with the Directors business strategy
* Taking the lead on enquiries coming into the business
* Working with clients to create solutions and pitching for business /upselling
* Managing both existing and new client relationships and developing these
* Developing and strengthening relationships
* Networking across accounts to identify further opportunities
* Driving the strategic direction of the accounts / new clients
* Working in with a commercial focus and maximising profitability
* Overseeing efficient handovers with delivery teams
* Onsite management when required

THE CANDIDATE
Candidates must come from an agency background and have proven skills in managing and developing accounts and client relationships, as well as the ability to identify opportunities. Proven experience of working as an Account Manager / Director or BDM would be preferred. Experience of creating proposals and pitching for business is key and any experience of working within the automotive space would be an added benefit but is not essential for the role. Strong commercial skills are essential as are exceptional client and supplier management skills.

In exchange for your commitment you will have the opportunity to play a core senior role in an exciting and vibrant company, and to work on some truly unique events for their prestigious client.
