Client Manager

Job description

We’re looking for ambitious Client Managers to join our dynamic agency.

Can you help us save the world from sameness ?

People who take ownership of projects; who know all the detail; who are proactive with their own opinion and ideas; who add value; who love the industry and bring inspiration; who take on the commercial challenge alongside the creative opportunity; and most importantly can build strong relationships based on mutual trust and respect with clients and the team around them.


You’ll know the role already with 3-5 years’ experience in agency or marketing & comms

Management of branding projects, digital and integrated campaigns from start to finish.
Writing inspiring creative briefs & ensuring the final creative output realises the vision.
Owning the commercial control of accounts & ensuring we’re using client budgets efficiently.
Identifying opportunities & issues and finding solutions.
Being proactive and a self-starter – particularly important when we’re all working more remotely.
Skills & Experience:

As an integrated agency, we’d prefer experience across a broad set of channels – brand, broadcast, digital, social, content. But if you’re currently in a more specialist agency or in-house role, then we just need evidence of how you’re immersing yourself across the whole of the comms journey & customer experience.

We can give you a career where you’re learning and developing across multiple clients and sectors, working with passionate & committed strategists & creatives in an environment rooted in mutual support.

And whilst the agency is based in Newcastle upon Tyne, our clients are up and down the country, so in terms of finding exactly the right talent, location doesn’t matter.

So if you’re looking for a role where you can spread your wings, then send your CV & a short note explaining why you’d be a great fit.

The Package

What’s it like to be Different?
Fantastic benefits, holiday allowance and company culture. And it's Newcastle for goodness sake, what a city. Plus,
• 26 days’ holiday incl. your birthday off every year
• Beer o’clock Fridays
• Company socials for every occasion
• Belter banter
• None of that same old, same old stuff

The Agency


Different is a creative agency at the intersection of creativity, insight and digital marketing.

We believe that if you always do the same things, you usually get the same results; whereas we look for new solutions to life’s trickiest problems.

We are an agency brimming with talent, enthusiasm and optimism. Creativity is at the core of our DNA and we operate with passion, integrity and civility. We cherish our people and our clients. We place incredible value on our strong and enduring client relationships because these create the conditions for us to get results from work that makes a difference to our clients’ businesses. It’s been 20 years since we opened our doors and we’ve had success along the way.

But we are a forward-looking agency. We’ve invested heavily in new capabilities across our offices in Newcastle and London and are excited by the new ways we can connect with audiences. Everything we do, however, stems from powerful brand platforms that yield creative ideas that can move effortlessly across channels and touch-points. We have scale as an agency but enjoy great intimacy with our clients, who like us, dare to be different.
