Are you our new account manager?
Location: Lindley, Huddersfield (hybrid working is an option)
Salary: £26-35k depending on experience
To find out more or to apply, please contact Louise Jaggar via email (email@example.com). Applications should include a CV and cover letter.
What’s the job?
Scriba PR – an award-winning B2B communications agency – is on the hunt for an experienced account manager to join our growing team. Ideally, you’ll have two or more years’ PR/marketing experience — agency or client-side — as well as the confidence to be a strategic, client-facing communicator.
What will you be doing?
As an account manager, you will oversee day-to-day communications for a number of Scriba’s clients — some big, some small. We have a collaborative environment, which means you’ll work alongside account directors, execs, and copywriters — as well as a handful of trusted external partners — to ensure we’re delivering strategic value and measurable bottom-line impact.
What skills do you need to succeed at Scriba?
We’re looking for someone with previous PR/marketing/communications experience, whether in-house or agency-side. Copywriting skills, although greatly welcomed, are not critical to this position. It would help if you already have a familiarity with tools such as WordPress/Headless, Teamwork, and GA4, as well as a wider understanding of campaign planning, management and execution.
This position can flex to suit an exec that deserves greater recognition and quickfire progression, through to a midweight account manager with more experience under their belt.
Other professional ‘plus points’ include:
B2B communications knowledge
Enthusiasm to manage multi-faceted campaigns
Confidence to lead regular meetings with clients
Ability to work in a fast-paced environment
Great attention to detail
A passion for evidencing ROI from communications
Eager to learn and try new approaches
Personality traits which would resonate well with colleagues include:
Patient, positive, and hard-working
A self-motivator with an abundance of initiative and excellent planning skills
A great communicator (face-to-face, over the phone and via email)
Committed to learning
Results-driven as well as task-driven
Efficient, organised, and time conscious
Loyal and honest
Willing to support colleagues and get stuck in
What’s in it for you?
Scriba is big on employee relations — as well as a great starting salary and flexible working as standard, we offer a host of benefits that we like to shout about, too. For example:
A healthcare cash plan — including 24/7 mental health counselling and GP service
Your birthday off ‘for free’
A paid leave ‘digital detox’ day
A day of paid leave per month for volunteering
6 ‘spark’ development days per year
Mentoring with an external personal and professional development coach
Monthly staff socials
Plus a number of 'outside the box' rewards/treats, all from our vibrant office in a converted textiles mill — with private breakout/creative space available, plus free parking, discounted gym membership, on-site spa, deli, and hair/beauty salons
Working with Scriba PR
Working across the globe – and with a client roster that includes trailblazers from sectors including technology, engineering, the environment, and construction – our down-to-earth team isn’t just great at writing. We also understand the complex world our clients operate in – take a look at some examples.
Our campaigns are results-driven, and employees listen to our – extremely varied – client base to deliver campaigns that will increase market share, help launch new products or services, attract or retain staff, or position a company for takeover, to name just a few.
Collectively, we have a real flair for what we do, with a rich blend of skills and talent that complement each other. We’re a team that sees the solutions, not the problems – and makes sure that every word counts.
We’ll often refer to ourselves as ‘the critical friend’ – being honest means we say it like it is and do the right thing, rather than being ‘yes men’. We like to call it Scriba sense. For example, we:
● Helped build an employment law brand for sale
● Assisted in raising a seven-figure investment in a leading martech brand
● Secured and are wholly responsible for writing a monthly column in Demolition & Recycling International
● Developed a ‘viral’ social media campaign for a telecoms leader
● Reworked an entire technical client’s website in under 24 hours
● Increased website traffic by 344% for a European commercial interiors expert.
Whether we’re raising the profile of an industry’s best-kept secret or positioning an established niche brand for fast growth, we deliver powerful pieces of content that work — constantly guided by our four key principles, known as Scriba soul.
Smart in our delivery
Optimistic in our outlook
Uncompromising in business
