Account Manager
4+ years experience

Make your mark in an agency that's rapidly growing in size and reputation.


Introduction

Lantern is looking for a Senior Account Manager/Project Manager with 4+ years of experience to join the team in our fast-paced studio in London Fields. You'll be working across a range of creative branding and campaign-led projects, spanning sectors including placemaking, property, technology and social change.

You’ll be part of a company that’s growing rapidly in size and reputation. Shortlisted for Small Agency of the Year in 2018 and winner of nine Transform Awards for branding in the last three years alone, this is an opportunity to stake your claim on a young company with big ambitions.

About the role

This is a hybrid role spanning both Account Management and Project Management expertise. As part of a small team, and as the only non-designer in the studio, you'll be integral to the day-to-day operation of the business with the potential to help shape the studio as it grows.

You'll be responsible for delivering branding projects across a wide variety of clients and working with the team in the studio to manage multiple workstreams simultaneously. You’ll build and nurture strong relationships with Lantern’s customers, actively seeking opportunities for business development and organic growth.

You'll be expected to...

  • Serve aServe as the lead point of contact for clients within the agency

  • Write proposals, detailed timelines and fee estimates for client projects

  • Ensure creative teams are clearly briefed

  • Manage day-to-day project documentation such as status reports, meeting notes and detailed timing plans

  • Be responsible for the timely and successful delivery of creative projects

  • Set expectations with clients and provide solutions for any unexpected project blockers or challenges

  • Plan and prepare creative presentations and pitch decks

  • Report key revenue metrics to clients and the business

  • Work with the financial accountants to ensure billing is up to date

Main requirements

  • 4+ years experience as an Account Manager and/or Project Manager at a reputable branding agency

  • Demonstrable ability to communicate with senior client stakeholders

  • Solid experience with Keynote, MS Office, Google Docs and project management tools

  • Ability to be calm under pressure and juggle multiple projects at a time, whilst maintaining sharp attention to detail

  • Excellent listening, problem solving and presentation abilities

  • Strong verbal and written communication skills

Our culture

As a small, growing team, our culture is very important to us. We're underpinned by values of creativity, integrity, quality and humility.

The studio is lively and fast-paced so you'll need a good sense of humour, an open mind, and a work ethic in line with our ambition to maintain a world-class design standard. As a YCN member agency, there are regular training and speaking opportunities, as well as talks and events, to help you develop both personally and professionally.

We're a social bunch too – so we're looking for someone who's as comfortable working hard on a pitch as they are enjoying a ping-pong battle or post-work pint. 

Our environment

We're based in London Fields, at the heart of the capital’s emerging creative scene. As a member of WeWork, you'll have access to a range of benefits including free beer and cider on tap, regular events and offers from brands including Fitness First, Babylon health, Gympass and Busaba Eathai.

Salary

Dependent on experience.

Our design for winners' guide is unveiled at exclusive awards evening at the House of Lords

At Lantern, we've supported the work of The Print Futures Awards for a number of years. The scheme, which offers grants of £1,500 to help people aged between 16 and 30 years, helps aspiring designers, print makers and creative professionals pay for training courses for a career in printing, publishing and packaging.

Once again we were asked to design the annual awards brochure for the event, this year reflecting the abstract ink in water pattern of the Awards logo, also branded by Lantern.

The awards, which continue to grow year after year, saw a record 88 applicants and 50 winners in 2016, each receiving their Awards at an event hosted by the Rt Hon the Baroness Dean of Thornton-le-Fylde and organised by The Printing Charity at the House of Lords.

At the event, Neil Lovell, The Printing Charity's Chief Executive and Secretary said: "We are proud of the Print Futures Awards and their continued growth. I believe that both the charity and the sector have more to do to encourage young talent.

Networking and connections are vital. We are setting up an Alumni programme for this year's and previous winners. The aim is to stay connected with them, introduce them to industry contacts and enable them to hear from leading thinkers in the sector."
