We're hiring: Account Manager

Based in our Houston Agency

The Job Description

The account manager is a very curious animal.

One that knows the philosophy of their agency and knows how to represent it, because they’re, well….. they’re part of it. One that knows everything about a client’s product or service. And is honest with them.

We need one that realises the importance of creating the spark for creativity. And can instil it in others. Someone who is great at relationships. And yes, we’ll say it. A people person (see? We said it) who can manage, develop and grow client relationships within their portfolio so they can retain and grow their client base. Whether that’s looking at promoting a client locally, or completely reinventing one, across the world.

An account manager with Fifth Ring knows and loves their business. It’s the love bit that makes them a fantastic person to work with, and a great ambassador for the Fifth Ring business.

If it’s you, we’d love to speak with you. Send us your resume.
