Job Description
 
 WHY YOU'LL DIG YOUR GIG   

In short, our purpose at TEAM is to blow people’s minds and steal their hearts with incredible brand experiences. We want you to help us help our brands do amazing, unprecedented, wildly creative things, creating moments that people never forget and that people will want to share with others. To make all that great work happen takes a lot of coordination and organization behind the scenes. 

 

THE TEAM DIFFERENCE   

People may forget your witty hashtag and your latest campaign tagline, but they will never forget how you made them feel. That’s because what a brand does is much more important that what is says. Actions speak louder than advertising and marketing. Experiences are what create real connections that lead to brand love and that’s what we do at TEAM. We’re a fun, collaborative, hard working group with a great office environment who takes care of our employees, to ensure that both in work and in life you experience something greater.   

 

WHAT YOU WILL DO

As an Account Director, the employee will be expected to manage multiple tasks (across various clients in multiple categories), often times simultaneously. Strength in communication across channels (mobile, voice and electronic) is a requirement as the individual will be expected to lead the management of coordinated efforts against delivering upon the client’s goals and managing the agency’s account growth expectations. A strong sense of accountability and “attention to detail” will be essential in enabling the individual to thrive in this environment – while being considered for advancement within the organization.

     

•    Be the internal business leader for key agency account(s), acting as primary point of contact for

 clients/partners and brand steward/expert within the agency, and spearheading strategic initiatives to drive client business growth.

•    Write or collaborate on creative/program briefs that inspire the team. Bring a creative and insightful approach to participating/assisting in strategic and creative brainstorming.

•    Lead the management and execution of client experiential events, amplification efforts and complementary programming. A familiarity with “field marketing” programs is helpful; specifically - the logistics around communicating program goals, building and presenting playbooks, utilizing systems/scheduling tools/electronic assets, etc. to track and measure performance will provide a “leg up” on other applicants for this position.

•    Be solution-oriented – helping to be forward thinking and anticipating any potential hurdles that may create a negative consumer/brand interaction. Candidates need to utilize a proactive approach to problem solving.

•    Be highly skilled at interfacing directly with clients and present him/her-self in a professional, competent manner. The individual will need to be able to demonstrate the ability to quickly win the trust and respect of their client and peers.

•    Perform a variety of administrative tasks including composing correspondence such as client memos, creating presentations, project timelines, and after-action/contact reports.

•    Be solution orientated when confronted with managing ambiguity. An entrepreneurial approach will aid in winning the respect of the individual’s team and the supporting departments, while understanding the required balance of utilizing the agencies tools and following existing effective practices.

•    Be capable of explaining & presenting the offerings and capabilities of the agency (following on-boarding and learning sessions). This will be essential when mining for incremental business opportunities with existing clients and for pitching new potential clients.

•    Maintain and leverage skills at developing, monitoring and managing against budgets; showcasing an understanding of cost estimating and properly pricing a program/production within budget constraints, while remaining committed to delivering the agency’s margin threshold.

•    Practice and ensure compliance with all of the organization’s policies and procedures. 

 

WAYS TO STAND OUT IN THE CROWD   

•    At least 3 years experience working in the spirits industry is required.

•    Bachelor’s degree in Business, Marketing, Advertising or related field required.

•    10 years of agency experience is required with demonstrated team management and leadership.

•    Event experience and brand activation experience.

•    Have spent time working both in a traditional/digital agency environment and in the “experiential marketing” category – and understand what is required to build and manage programs and events that “bring brands to life” through 1:1 and group interactions.

•    Goal-oriented focus against tasks; ensuring objectives are met with quality and timeliness.

•    Be a superb communicator and presenter. Leverage skills within the agency (across departments) and externally when interacting with clients. Maintain detailed schedules, provide updates to the team, and stay ahead of potential pitfalls prior to their occurrence.

•    Demonstrate problem-solving abilities when client issues arise and need to be resolved. Be a pro-active trouble-shooter vs taking a reactionary approach following incidents.

•    Exhibit initiative and the ability to work independently as well as within a team environment with multiple departments. Must be able to communicate effectively across departments.

•    Possess strong people and interpersonal skills to build effective relationships with all levels of personnel (internal & external).

•    Strong knowledge of working within the Microsoft Office Suite, SmartSheets, Google Docs (or comparable) and other Web-based tools is a requirement.

•    Ability to travel and assist with onsite program management as requested.

•    Retail, CPG and Alcoholic Beverage industry knowledge is a plus.
