An account executive will support the account services or sales team with administrative assistance and research. Unlike many administrative roles at this level, this role is likely to be quite heavily client-facing and the incumbent will have their own responsibilities around relationship-building with clients and the media.
Working closely with the account team, an account executive will play a key role in ensuring the success of larger-scale projects, making sure they finish on time and in budget. They will assist with the creation of strategy and monitor the effectiveness of any subsequent campaigns, arrange and attend meetings, write reports and handle any campaign budgets.
Tiger prefers to recruit account executive candidates with at least a few years’ experience so that they are equipped with a strong understanding of the position’s requirements. It’s this knowledge that will then enable them to step into a team and hit the ground running.
The recruitment of a strong account executive will entail a thorough assessment of their written and verbal skills, while a comprehensive behavioural interview will determine their interpersonal skills and capabilities as a strong networker.
A successful account executive will possess second-to-none communication skills, a natural interest in current affairs, and be abreast of the latest trends and goings-on in their sector. With a passion for the creative industry, they will be commercially aware and have the flexibility to work across a variety of role responsibilities and fluctuating workloads.
Tiger can assist with finding the right candidate who will grow into the position, fit into the team culture and have the potential to progress. From briefing stage through to interview, assessment and reference checking, we will work closely with you to ensure you find the perfect match.Account Executive Job Description Template
