Senior Digital Account Manager

at Recruit Digital in Cape Town

My client is a global digital agency and they are looking for a determined, ambitious Senior Digital Account Manager in Cape Town who gets as excited about driving new business, as they do about strengthening existing client relationships.

The ideal candidate would be daring and fearless in pushing the agency's agenda and values, communicating with influence and credibility while networking or at meetings. Taking pride in building trust with clients by listening and anticipating their needs and challenges, and delivering against them, taking this and using it to increase and capitalise on opportunities to cross sell and upsell. You would have to understand the importance of building relationships internally with colleagues in studio and operations, as well as harnessing a team all focused on delivering a project effectively and on time. You'd be unafraid of the difficult discussions, and know when it's appropriate to push back and provide alternative solutions.


  • Up to 5 years' experience in a target/budget driven environment with focus on digital products and services (web and platform builds and/or performance campaigns) is essential.
  • An understanding of costing models within an agency environment.
  • A strong understanding of project management would be highly advantageous.
  • HAS to have digital and agency experience, production would be preferential.
  • Previous experience working on BIG accounts as well as multiple accounts at a time.
  • FMCG experience would be favourable but not a non-negotiable.
  • Basic client management skills are a non-negotiable and given in terms of status sessions, client status docs, forecasting and commercial management, process and systems.
  • Briefing in and managing PMs and projects in the system.

Start date: as soon as possible.

Salary: R 30k - R 50k depending on experience and current earnings.
