We're looking for an enthusiastic Account Manager, ready to support the creation and delivery of campaigns across the entire marketing mix.

The Company

Purpose Media is a Derbyshire based Full-Service Marketing Agency that supports clients in all aspects of their marketing.

We work with a variety of brands, from service providers to online retailers, and we champion our clients to look through the eyes of their customers and create memorable experiences.

Recent growth has aided our development, allowing us to increase our service offering and expand to new offices. Our space includes meeting and conference rooms, break out areas, collaborative spaces, media studio and secure on-site car parking.

Located 2 minutes from the M1 Junction 28, and 35 minutes from both Derby and Nottingham’s city centres, our location is perfect for your commute. Situated directly opposite East Midlands Designer Outlet and the public transport routes offered by Trent Barton Bus services.

The Role

Specifically, you’ll work with clients as an extension of their marketing team, using your understanding of them to create and implement marketing proposals and plans. You’ll brief internal teams to ensure the marketing campaigns of our clients are delivered on time, on budget and to the required standards. Liaising with clients on the progress of their work, you’ll understand their needs and objectives and that these are reflected in the execution of their campaigns.

What you’ll be doing:

Our clients range from dentists and software suppliers to football clubs and beauty products, so we’re looking for someone who is interested in (and hopefully has experience with) a wide range of marketing methods and techniques with a wide variety of clients.

Key Purpose of Job:

Well organised and a good communicator, you will understand clients needs, help to create marketing campaigns and report on their success, and liaise internally to make sure work is completed to a good standard.


Manage the relationship between clients and Purpose Media.

Lead the creation and development of campaign ideas and marketing strategies, supported by a wider team.

Liaise with internal team members to ensure everyone understands the client and their needs.

  • Pitching ideas to clients working with them to create campaigns
  • Building marketing plans and ensuring these are up to date
  • Researching relevant topics and presenting this information
  • Pitching ideas to internal team members and working with them to create assets

We need people who are self-motivated, reliable and who have excellent organisation and time management skills.

Opportunities for progression:

We love having passionate people on our team and we want them to excel in the things that they enjoy. We are a rapidly growing company, so talented applicants could easily find themselves leading new projects or working in other areas of interest if they rise to the challenge.

Needs to have:

  • Experience in working with clients

  • Good, accurate writing skills
  • Track record in the ability to work well with teams and collaborate effectively
