THE WORKING ENVIRONMENT
Agency new business careers are rewarding, both intellectually and financially; but it is not easy and we are only after the very best.
Manifest is based in Kennington Park which is a one minute walk from Oval tube station and ten minutes walk or a five minute bus ride from Vauxhall tube and overground stations. Such connections mean we are less than ten minutes from the centre of London whilst at the same time a comfortable commute from most places in London and the surrounding counties.
On site we have a cafe, bar, gym, showers, safe cycle storage and plenty of parking. Just offsite there are public tennis courts that we make use of on lovely summer days. It is not uncommon to find the team at The Oval watching 20/20 cricket after work with a few cold beers on a balmy summer evening. Our office is a light and airy loft style studio with air conditioning, west facing windows and plenty of meeting rooms and break out areas.
We believe that a happy team is a productive team and our flat management structure means that every voice is given an equal listening to. Our team are all self-motivated go getters with a strong work ethic and a passion for both sales and marketing.
The role at Manifest is to act as a white labeled new business resource for four clients, each of whom are non-competing marketing communications agencies. Specifically the single most important task of the position is to contact senior marketing decision makers and arrange a meeting between them and your client. We expect our ADs to be able to arrange at least one qualified meeting per day, which is not easy; that is why we only take on the most extraordinarily talented and hard working individuals.
Exceptional written and verbal skills are essential for any role at Manifest and we will, prior to making any offer, conduct a written test to establish proficiency in these subjects.
ACCOUNT DIRECTOR – £45,000 O.T.E.
At least two years working in either a marketing communications agency or in a client side marketing department plus at least five years sales experience. You will be expected to be able to jump into the role immediately with little or no training and be trusted to ‘own’ client relationships from day one.
We offer a substantial basic salary dependent upon experience, which when coupled with our bonus scheme, provides the quality of people we are looking for the opportunity to earn £45k per year or more.
ACCOUNT MANAGER – £39,000 O.T.E.
At least six month working in either a marketing communications agency or in a client side marketing department plus at least one year sales experience. Prior to being introduced onto client accounts you will need to progress through Manifest bootcamp, which entails working as the Manifest new business manager, arranging a minimum of twelve meetings per month with agencies we want to work with.
Only after having successfully completed this role will you be introduced onto client accounts working under a Senior Account Director and after having successfully completed a year with us will you be considered for the role of Account Director.
We offer a substantial basic salary dependent upon experience, which when coupled with our bonus scheme, provides the quality of people we are looking for the opportunity to earn £39k per year or more.
In the first instance please send your CV together with a short covering note telling us which role you are applying for and why to CAREERS.
We will then, should you have the skills and experience we look for, conduct an initial telephone interview following which those selected will be invited in to meet the team and discuss the position you have applied for with our MD and Head of Operations.
