Advertising account executive

Posted by Bevas Logistics MEMBER18 Sep 4:10 pmApapa, Lagos

Advertising account handlers are employed by advertising agencies to administer the accounts of a small number of clients (between one and five companies), for whom they are the key contact. They are required to know the client and understand exactly what it is that they do and what it is that they want to sell. Their responsibilities could include:

consulting clients about campaign requirements
presenting campaign pitches and costs to clients
passing proposals to appropriate media/creative staff
negotiating time-scales and budgets
monitoring work progress and keeping in contact with clients at all stages
delivering final products for review
report writing
staff supervision
financial administration

Qualifications and training required

Any degree subject is acceptable for entry into the profession, but business, marketing, or management degrees can be particularly helpful. We value appropriate skills and personality more highly than relevant work experience. It is important, however, to have a good appreciation of what working within the advertising industry involves.
Key skills for advertising account executives

Commercial awareness
Good written and verbal communication skills
The ability to cope with pressure and work to tight deadlines
Good teamworking skills
Effective organisational abilities
