About this job
If you have a sales or client service-led background in MarTech or in a senior marketing agency position and considering your options, Better Placed are recruiting for an Account Director role to lead on a portfolio of existing clients with a global MarTech powerhouse.
The business has largely been unaffected by recent events and new clients are continuing to come on board which is a fantastic credit to the business model and quality of the product.
Sitting separately to the new business team, you’ll be a key cog in the system that ensures the client retention rate remains very high. You’ll be demonstrating how the solutions provide real value, complementing your client’s marketing strategy and you’ll be able to see the impact of the technology in real terms. You’ll be having honest conversations with senior leaders of some of the biggest global brands across all sectors, looking for ways to improve the service and spot any cross-sell or up-sell opportunities.
It’s crucial that you understand on a professional level the impact of marketing, and particularly digital marketing, on a company’s performance and reputation. You’ll also need to have the ability to translate complex requirements to both internal and external stakeholders and work towards increasing the value of existing accounts.
Ideal backgrounds include Account Directors or Client Services Directors in a marketing agency environment or senior sales roles in MarTech.
Based in Leeds, this role looks after global clients. When restrictions are lifted you can expect reasonably frequent travel to the US and Europe.
If you are interested in hearing more about this Account Director role and you have the background to match the requirements, please apply now!
