    Title: Account Director

    Reports to: Managing Director – RedPeg ME

     

    What we’re about:

    What this job is about:

    Although RedPeg is an established brand in the states, we are unknown in the UAE. We need a fabulous Client Services person through and through, to help us build a compelling offer that will go beyond satisfying the needs of brands, media owners and rights holders, but enable them to see the potential and true relevance of deep and long-term brand engagement vs short term events or impressions.

    • Excellent writing, copy/editing skills and general communication skills
    • In-depth knowledge of the event/promotions industry
    • Highly detail oriented, and able to multi-task in a fast-paced environment.
    • Must have Middle East regional experience.

    Client Relationship and Account Management

    • Build and maintain excellent customer relationships with clients to facilitate the development of new business proposals
    • Help set the strategic tone, direction and supervision of accounts. This includes overseeing client needs, staffing, strategy (working with our Strategy team in D.C. and Dubai, quality of work, and budgeting working closely with RedPeg ME Finance team as well as DC team. where necessary); identifying and communicating client’s business strategy.
    • Maintain on-going relationships with clients after the initial “sell-in” phase; ensure streamlined communication between internal departments and client
    • Develop new business proposals and presentations in partnership with senior leadership that leads to client retention
    • Ensure that the Client Service and operation teams are mindful of clients’ business objectives and success metrics
    • Collaborate with internal teams (Strategy, Creative, Operations) to ensure that campaign goals, budgeting and scheduling parameters are adhered to as outlined
    • Represent client in all campaign planning sessions (internal and external)
    • Provide consistent coordination, leadership, and communication to internal team to ensure maximum performance

    Finally, you will genuinely:

    • Care about your team, your clients, our industry;
    • Make yourself available as a mentor;
    • Embrace the RedPeg culture and ensure it is palpable within our Dubai office;
    • Be a great ambassador for RedPeg Middle East
