Account/Project/Strategy Manager Jobs

Every project needs an experienced Account Manager to oversee it, and this is no different within the creative industries. From advertising to broadcast journalism, the presence of a Creative Account Manager can make or break a campaign. While similar, Project Managers are also responsible for the completion of the project which must be finished on time and on budget. Whether agency based or client-side, Planners and Strategy Managers are also responsible for taking research and insight and turning it into behaviour based creative ideas, this information will act as the base for all advertising campaigns. If managing creative accounts is your area of expertise, Salt’s specialist recruiters can help you find your next role.
