Account Manager - Digital

You've heard of a Liger, right? You know, the hybrid love-cub of a lion and a tiger. Raaow! Well, we're looking for a similarly rare breed here at Republic Publishing, and we think that could be you.

We're on the hunt for a daring digital Account Manager with a burning desire to help deliver effective communications through best-in-class editorial content. See, at Republic Publishing we've taken a very different approach to helping brands communicate with their audiences since the moment we first burst into existence in 2007. Supported by our heavyweight in-house journalists, you'll be tasked with developing creative online content packages and campaigns that far outstrip expectations.

Working across a small range of brands, the main client would be Vodafone UK, where you'll work closely with their internal teams to drive owned channels - including Vodafone Social - and active seeding to key influencers.

Based in Farringdon, Republic Publishing is a small agency of around 20 people where you have a real opportunity to make a significant impact within the business, and working in this brave new world of comms you'll have the chance to shape and affect brilliantly creative approaches to digital communication.
