McCann Central is seeking a Senior Digital Account Manager to support a number of high profile accounts.
Our digital account management team is comprised of versatile marketers charged with driving growth and retention of our clients, whilst delivering world class digital products and solutions.
What do we need from you?
At McCann, the account management team sits at the heart of all the work we do for our clients, who look to us to work with them as an extension of their teams. We are not just “account people.” That requires becoming intimate with all aspects of our client’s business, beyond just the work they hire us to do for them day-to-day. We represent the client’s voice inside the agency, while keeping an objective perspective on what’s right for their business and what will exceed their goals.
The ideal person therefore…
- Has experience managing digital activity in a creatively driven agency and/or a technology or media platform company
- Is comfortable working within a fast-paced, creative environment
- Exhibits passion and curiosity for digital marketing and emerging trends in social, mobile, product and service innovation
- Has proven account management experience in a digitally led role (we’re very open to this being part of a wider integrated marketing remit)
- Has the initiative and charisma to initiate and present solutions; to provide strategic advice, oversight, and best practise; to challenge, reassure and lead in meetings; and to ensure that business is developed and delivered.
- Understands and identify how and where digital programmes can add value, and is conversant with technical landscapes.
Why would you want to work here?
McCann Central is the UK’s largest integrated agency, with over 500 forward-thinking individuals working together to help brands play a significant role in people’s lives.
We’re one of the most successful agencies in McCann’s global network and of our people are based outside London, proving you don’t have to uproot and move to the capital in order to work on world-class campaigns. In fact, a significant number have moved in the opposite direction and seen their careers continue to flourish.
We’re also part of McCann Worldgroup, a global agency network that delivers groundbreaking work for some of the world’s biggest brands. To back this up, McCann Worldgroup has recently been voted the most effective global agency, Campaign’s European Integrated Agency of the Year and McCann Central walked away from Cannes Lions 2018 weighed down by not one, but four Lions.
McCann Central is a place where ideas flourish, with a culture that’s both encouraging and unafraid to push boundaries. We’re home to a team of incredible thinkers and doers, from an eclectic mix of backgrounds, with a truly omnichannel approach.
And the rewards?
In addition to a competitive salary we are committed to creating a brilliant environment for all our people. This includes benefits such as 28 days holiday, plus the opportunity to buy more holiday, enhanced pension contributions, life assurance and much more.
A culture of learning and development is also central to our ethos, so you’ll have access to industry leading training and development programmes, plus you’ll get to work closely with the world’s biggest media partners to access exclusive features and products.
Most importantly, you’ll be part of a fun and collaborative team and you’ll work in an environment where you are supported, pushed and developed.
At McCann, we’ve spent more than a century building successful brands using one simple philosophy: Truth Well Told. It’s our belief that consumer insights based on truth are crucial to building brands that last.
Working with McCann will be both fun and challenging. We want you to grow with us and create work our clients will be excited about and that you will feel proud of.

Our commitment to equal opportunities
For us, diversity is a business imperative – one that must be embedded into every aspect of how we operate in order to drive success. Simply put, we believe an encouraging and inclusive environment makes sound business sense.
As a globally integrated community that influences and shapes culture, it’s vital that the talent mix in our agencies encompass all dimensions of diversity, and that we demand the same of the people we work with.
Conscious inclusion encompasses social, cultural and cognitive differences and cultivates an ethos of belonging, connection and shared purpose. It is the integration of this philosophy that allows us to create meaningful experiences for our employees, drive better business practices with our vendors and clients, and ultimately lead with purpose.
