International Account Manager wanted for Global Accounts

Will you be joining DDB & Tribal Amsterdam as an International Account Manager on our Global Accounts? We’re an international family of driven colleagues working together in an informal atmosphere. With one goal: crafting the best creative solutions for our clients’ business. Our approach is media-neutral, with a passion for innovation. And the huge diversity of people at whom we direct our ideas is what inspires us every day.
The International Account Manager we’re looking for is a vital part within DDB Amsterdam’s Global Team, assisting in the coordination as well as working on day-to-day business. The specific accounts are Pet Food and FMCG/Indulgence. The scope varies from strategy, media and research to actual production. You will collaborate with teams working abroad at DDB offices, as well as the teams within the Amsterdam office.
You are an entrepreneurial team worker, you have affinity with the business and everything that comes with it and are involved in the brand that you work for, as well as the strategy and creative process of the work. You are not easily bowled over.

In your day-to-day activities, you are a key contact with your clients on your scoped tasks and projects. You can work within the team but also lead projects independently. This includes managing client meetings and presentations, and being responsible for specific projects. These may consist of video, print, digital or social. You make sure that we deliver the highest quality from briefing to delivery, within the deadline. You keep our customers informed about the project status, you choose the best approach together with the team and you are jointly responsible for the briefing, budget and costs of each project. Moreover, you get the best out of your creative colleagues – you not only accompany the process, but also collaborate intensively with the creative, traffic, strategy and design departments. Finally, you will liaise with other agency disciplines e.g. our online, below-the-line, media and PR partners.
You keep a healthy balance between the customer’s interests and our own. Your administration is always up-to-date and your way of working is structured. You work together in the account team with an Account Director and a Business Director. You are fluent in English and ideally you have some understanding of Dutch.

We are looking for:
• Account Manager with 4-5 years of experience at an advertising agency, preferably ‘international’ on Regional or Global Accounts
• College (HBO) or university-level education
• A service-oriented working approach (internal and external)
• Experience with (large) A-brand accounts, preferably with and within international / multi-cultural teams
• Fluent in written and spoken English, preferably as first language
• Excellent Word, Excel and PowerPoint skills
• Commercially well grounded
• A people person
• Comfortable working in a fast-paced environment

What we have to offer:
We are a full-service marketing communications agency that is part of the worldwide DDB network. We offer you a challenging position that offers room for personal growth in a dynamic, international and informal working environment. You’ll be working together with professionals from different countries, for major Dutch and international brands.
We don’t have a 9-to-5 mentality, but we work efficiently to maintain a healthy work-life balance.
