Senior Account Manager

Job description

About the roles - Diageo account management

Our Diageo work, range of brands and global reach is growing, and we are looking for good people who can step in and make a difference.

We’re looking for people who are adaptive and hands-on and can adopt HeyHuman’s way of working and thinking quickly, based on behavioural science foundations, particularly BE and NS.

Your focus will be on leading different Diageo brand relationships and projects in beer and spirits around the world, with roughly half of this work taking place in Africa and almost no UK based work.

The role requires a proven ability for flexible cross-channel thinking as you will be solving brand and communications briefs across a variety of channels, from broadcast to experiential to in-bar. Sector understanding and/or experience is important.

You’ll be joining a capable and focused client team of a BD, Two ADs and a SAM, supported by a capable Planning team, senior creatives and support functions.

We are looking for permanent team members but would also consider short-term meantime.

The Agency

HeyHuman was launched in 2014, built on a new way of thinking and working as an agency and helping clients achieve transformational growth. Lots of agencies talk about this but we have invested time and money into doing this and have case studies to prove it from our first five years.

We believe in growing Human Brands through changing behaviours. Human Brands understand that the relationship between people and brands have changed and that they need to think and behave differently to grow.

Through our MindKind™ approach we help brands grow by thinking differently about people, brands and marketing. We tap into the new relationships people have with brands, focus on behaviours and use neuroscience to develop content differently in brand, social and experiential communications.

Our ways of behaving and shared values are something we believe in and have spent time developing across the agency, so they matter to us.

We won the Drum Business Transformation award at the end of 2018, recognition of what we had achieved since launching in 2014.
