Account Supervisor, Toronto

Well, hello there.  Look at you.  You look like you’re ready to lead. You’re four to five years into this agency life.  You’ve got client management down to a fine art – and you know that you’ve got the strategic chops to make a leap. You’re not into agency drama; you just want to do amazing work and advance your career.

You could be the Account Supervisor / Ultimate Warrior we’re looking for. Famous Folks is expanding our Toronto office.  Our focus is in the retail and real estate sectors, so if you’ve worked in these areas, you’ve got an edge over the competition. And if you can effortlessly* integrate the digital world into the real world, we should talk.

RESPONSIBILITIES

You’d make sure that everything we do for our clients is beautifully executed, while being on time, on budget, and on strategy.  More specifically, you would:

  • Guide clients through agency-client relationships, from on-boarding, quotes & estimates, timelines & budgets, and briefing –  all the way through to creative execution.
  • Work collaboratively to prioritize agency activity and creative team workloads.
  • Think strategically. Help find the right answer, not the easy answer.

DESIRED SKILLS AND EXPERIENCE

More to the point, you have:

  • Experience executing campaigns across all mediums.   Digital experience including building websites and managing social campaigns driven by content are of particular interest to us.
  • A compulsive need to organize stuff.  You’ve uttered the words “upload it to Basecamp” in your sleep.
  • A minimum of  4-5 years of agency / account management experience and a marketing or communications degree.
  • Been described as charismatic, easy-going & brave. You possess a “go-getter” attitude and you’re able to roll with the punches.
  • Must possess good communications, writing, editing, and proofing skills. If this point bugs you, tell us why?
