A day in the life of a Senior Account Manager

9th August 2022

Watch A day in the life of – Heather Myatt, Senior Account Manager at P+S 2022 video here.

These are exciting times here at P+S Creative. We’re winning new business, taking on bigger and more complex projects with long-time clients, and continuing to expand our offering to meet today’s marketing challenges. In short – we’re keeping ourselves very busy!

And because of that, we’re looking for talented Account Managers to join our growing Client Services team.

What does an Account Manager do you ask? Well, I’m here to give you a complete run down on the role. I’m a Senior Account Manager working across a range of clients, including Panasonic Connect Europe, one of Proctor + Stevenson’s largest and longest running clients.

What does an account manager actually do?

An Account Manager’s role is to be the voice of our clients within P+S, working across all teams to deliver high-quality work that stays true to the brief, meets all deadlines and stays within budget.

“…we’re organised, great communicators and problem-solvers…”

We also develop strong partnerships with our clients. We understand their business, their products and their goals and advise on new strategies, methods and programmes that will help their teams reach their objectives.

We’re organised, great communicators and problem-solvers – and we aren’t afraid to take on a challenge. And it’s that self-starter attitude that really helps us as we navigate our role and keep all our plates spinning.

What does a typical week look like for an AM?

The types of work we manage varies depending on our individual clients. In a typical week on Panasonic Connect Europe, we’ll research, build, and manage awareness and lead generation campaigns across a range of channels, work with the creative and technology teams to design and build webpages, create print and video collateral, and develop brand strategy for the organisation.

“…it’s that variety in work, scope and complexity that I find really rewarding…”

As an Account Manager, you’ll be in constant contact with your clients through weekly calls and emails, with new projects coming in daily. You’ll build out each project from your client’s brief and properly cost each phase, and then you’ll bring in the right people to get each project finished. Some projects last 3 days, some will last months, and it’s that variety in work, scope, and complexity that I find really rewarding.

And while we tend to manage our own projects, you’re never alone. The team is so supportive and always on hand to help you through the project management, spreadsheets and emails of your day-to-day. We’re surrounded by a very talented and experienced team at P+S and there’s always someone whose brain you can pick to help make your projects more successful.

And what about the social side of things?

It’s not all work over here – we also have a lot of fun! Weekly quizzes, Friday drinks, monthly pop-up lunches and various groups, sporting challenges and parties make Proctors a pretty awesome place to be.

As an Account Manager with P+S, you’ll be challenged, given the freedom to run with your ideas and the support you need to develop in your career. You’ll work on some incredible projects with clients who are making the world a better place. So, if you’re starting to think that a lot of what I’ve said sounds pretty good to you, go ahead and apply! And if you’ve got any questions before you do, please don’t hesitate to connect with me on LinkedIn. I’d be happy to help in any way I can.
