The Role

We are looking for an experienced and self-driven Digital Account Manager to join our full-service marketing agency.

As a Digital Account Manager at Purpose Media, your main duty will be to develop and manage digital marketing strategies with our clients and help them achieve their marketing goals.

You’ll be given time to develop your knowledge, and you will need to showcase this ongoing development in your work.

Because of the nature of this role we’re looking for someone with hands-on digital marketing experience, however, we don’t need you to do any physical digital marketing in this role, as you’ll be working with our digital marketing team (and other teams) to implement client’s plans.

  • monitoring tasks and ensuring delivery
  • working independently on specific tasks and projects
  • leading regular client meetings
  • capacity to learn and grow your skills


  • Competitive salary
  • Relaxed and supportive work environment
  • Opportunity for professional development
  • Frequent staff away days and social events

Working hours

9am until 5pm Monday to Friday with some occasional requirement for out-of-hours work. Any out-of-hours work will be notified in advance – and you will be given time off in lieu in return.


You’ll need to be outgoing as you will be working directly with clients. Strong communication skills will also help with internal communications.

  • experience in owning responsibility for client accounts
  • experience with SEO/SEM and CRM software
  • experience with Google AdWords campaigns
  • in-depth knowledge of online marketing tools and technology

  • sense of ownership and pride in your performance and its impact on a company’s success
  • critical thinker and problem-solving skills
  • team player
  • good time-management skills
  • great interpersonal and communication skills

You will need to be able to work independently and alongside a team.

You must be a native English speaker and have good accurate writing skills, along with a full clean UK driving licence.

You will need to show:
