Account Director

Date: 12-Jan-2023

Location: London, GB

Company: OMG UK

Fuse are looking for a highly confident, established and experienced Account Director to join & lead a dynamic team working on one of our key UEFA accounts.

 

You’ll be expected to be a trusted advisor to our clients – being empathic while also having the confidence to check and challenge where necessary. You will be accountable for the successful management and execution of all client deliverables, and where possible, grow the account via extended scopes of work and/or upselling new services.

You will play more of a strategic role on the account (less of the ‘doing’, more of the ‘guiding’ and consulting) to ensure client objectives are fully achieved and their partnerships stay on track. Your understanding of their business requirements, Fuse’s proposition and the broader sport and entertainment industry, will set-up you up to deliver with excellence whilst growing your respective pieces of business.

 

About You

  • You will thrive in this role if you are a confident presenter, solution-based, organised, proactive and have a dynamic nature.
  • This role is ideal for you if you like working in a high paced environment, likes working with lots of different people and you are someone who can build strong client relationships to be a trusted advisor and the go-to for our partnership deliverables.
  • Experience of working with leading sports rights holders and/or experience of working with high profile sponsorships is a must. A strong understanding of both the sponsorship and sport landscape, including how partnerships and brand experiences work within the broader marketing mix will ensure you really thrive in this role.

 

Be Your Best Statement

Please discuss any specific requirements with your dedicated Talent Acquisition team member or if you would feel more comfortable, you can email us confidentially at beyourbest@omnicommediagroup.com to let us know how we can support you.
