The Senior PR Account Manager Role

Reporting to the Account Director Senior Account Managers (SAMs) are the driving force of strategic campaign planning and the execution and delivery for these campaigns for clients. They are bastions of quality control and ensure all clients expectations over met, and exceeded, and inspire their team to consistently deliver the highest quality results. They are well networked and hold strong relationships with press (trade and nationals), analysts and influencers, calling upon their network and contacts to enhance the agency and its clients. They are the motivator of a team, ensuring work is error free and delivers against agreed KPIs.
