Description

The Company

Gravity Road is a creative company that believes in time well spent. We create things that people want to spend time with – ideas that audiences will love, share and be entertained by. And we do this by connecting brands with culture and technology in ways that are smart, progressive and playful. We want to entertain and engage.
We recently joined the world’s first BrandTech group, You & Mr Jones. This is an opportunity for us to supercharge our creative by working with partners who are developing the best technology across the globe. We’re super stoked. We just got the best tech toolkit in town. We’re a young company. We seek to keep learning and adapting so we work smarter.
Our diverse teams come from a range of backgrounds including journalism, designers and brands. Diversity in all guises is a commercial imperative for us. We also value the things that are important to you outside of work and will consider all flexible working applications. For us the most important thing is to have the best people, doing their best work.

The Role

As a Senior Account Manager, you’ll be encouraged to challenge the norm and drive the client and team to innovate in the world of social and connected platforms. This role works across a number of brands in the sports, entertainment and gambling space so you will have a passion and understanding of sports (teams and the athletes) and its role within culture.
The role sits within our client management team, the engine powering much of the company’s success. You are the person everyone wants in the room. You will work closely with the rest of the agency to help deliver creative and effective award-winning work for some of the biggest brands globally. Here, we aim for nines and tens. Low-balling for a safe six is just not us.

You will work with the team to run analytical client reports and be able to understand and explain the results. You will attend regular team and client meetings with a key understanding of the asks involved and an idea of the solutions required.
You will have a close handle on briefs coming in, in order to turn them around to tight deadlines, working with the strategic, creative, production and data teams. You will build and nurture relationships with both your team and clients, being a key client contact on a daily basis. You will be one of the key people to see the brief through to delivery to a high standard.

  • Strong sports knowledge and experience– leveraging your passion and expertise to enable the brand to flourish in this arena
  • Experience of content production from start to finish for both ATL / TVC and social platforms
  • Brilliant social media understanding – demonstrating an in-depth knowledge of platforms, distribution of content and earned media

Gravity Road is an equal opportunity employer. We’re a place where everyone can be themselves, share ideas and use their strengths to deliver creative brilliance. Everyone’s time at Gravity Road should be Time Well Spent and what that looks and feels like is different for each of us depending on our role, responsibilities and life outside of work.
We don’t believe in a one size fits all approach when it comes to how we work. We want the best people, doing their best work. We celebrate diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees.
