Account Manager

We support some of the world’s biggest food and drink brands and we do so by ensuring our creativity and commitment aren’t diluted with boring office politics, meaningless marketing buzz words or pointless meetings. We’re a Manchester-based agency who love what we do and just get on with it… If you’re not short of creativity, are keen to work on some truly unique projects and don’t get offended easily, you might quite like it here!

We Are Creation is a beautiful coming together of misfits, alcohol, dark humour and eclectic Spotify playlists. Now these ingredients may not sound like a recipe for success but don’t judge a unicorn by the length of its horn…

In this role you will report directly to the Account Director and will be responsible for managing and developing an array of accounts, as well as overseeing the work of other members of the We Are Creation team. As Account Manager, you will also be responsible for building relationships with clients and encouraging team productivity. As we’re a small team who work with big brands, you’ll be expected to contribute when the team are working on a client brief – just because you’re an Account Manager, doesn’t mean your creative input isn’t expected or appreciated – every project here at We Are Creation is considered a collaborative effort!
