Cher Keane

Associate Director

Want to join us at Red Setter? We've got an exciting opportunity for a new Account Manager.

Contract: Permanent

Hours: Full time (9am-5pm) Monday to Friday

Location: 3 days a week (Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday) in office (Brighton), 2 days a week can be remote or office

Salary: From £37k, dependent on experience

Who are we?

Red Setter is the PR agency for the world’s design pioneers. We amplify the voice and value of design to help the world’s most ambitious agencies achieve the recognition they deserve, building their brand and staying relevant in an ever-changing world.

Since 2009, we’ve built an expert team of 20 journalists, media specialists and PR strategists who share an unrivalled understanding of the design industry and the media.

It’s insider knowledge that sets us apart, so we can set our clients apart. Whether it’s a design showcase in Creative Review, an opinion piece in US business title Fast Company, or a speaking gig at a luxury packaging conference in LA, we have the knowledge, skills and contacts to put our clients on the world’s biggest stages.

We know that the right people are the secret to our success, and we’re looking for a superstar to come and join our team.

The opportunity

As an Account Manager, you’ll be part of a small team with a global impact – joining an Associate Director, Senior Account Executive, Account Executive and Design Writer – and you’ll soon be taking the lead on delivering high profile media coverage and reporting it to your clients.

Your core responsibilities will be:

- The campaign lead – making sure everything happens how it should, when it should

- The day-to-day contact for our clients, ensuring everyone knows what’s happening, knows what they need to do, and why they need to do it

- Task managing your team to ensure that as a team you deliver activity and results against targets

- Keeping on top of the news to spot relevant opportunities for your clients to join the cultural conversation in the media

- Pitching stories to journalists, and liaising with them to line up interviews and deliver written copy and visual assets

- Writing copy on behalf of clients for publication in the media

- Working closely with a small, experienced team to deliver outstanding results at speed

We’ll give you best in class training on how to do all of this, and you’ll be working alongside a team who’s been doing this for years and will show you everything they know.

What we’re looking for

First and foremost, we want people that are passionate about design. This isn’t just a job for us, it’s a mindset and we want people that are excited and inspired by our clients’ work.

You don’t need to have done all of this exact list before – we’ll train and coach you on any of the bits that are new – but, we are looking for someone with great experience in PR, independently running several campaigns, and task managing a team, ideally in a similar field, and we’re looking for specific qualities:

*Juggling multiple projects means the ability to work quickly and efficiently is key. We want plate spinners, able to discuss new ideas in new sectors with new people every day.

*Storytelling sits at the heart of everything we do, so we need people with strong writing and idea development skills.

*We want people who sit forward, bring ideas, and then have the can-do mindset to make those ideas happen.

What we offer

We want Red Setter to be the best place to work, and we work hard to realise that ambition. Here’s some of the ways we’re doing that:

- We’re very picky about our clients, saying no to far more than we say yes to, and this means we work with genuinely brilliant and inspiring clients

- We love working with each other, and spending time socially together: regular socials and awaydays – recently a storytelling workshop, visit to the Design Museum, volunteering at a local women’s refuge – as well as annual overseas trips (Berlin, Madrid, Porto, Palma, so far)

- Every Monday morning, we share highlights from the previous week and take time to celebrate each other’s achievements

- We offer a good holiday allowance of 25 days a year, everyone has private health insurance and a personal wellness budget, and the office kitchen is always well stocked!

- Clearly defined roles & responsibilities ensure everyone understands what they need to do; ongoing training ensures we’re all continually learning and developing

- We believe in giving back, through regular donations and volunteering, and are on the path towards B Corp accreditation

As your expertise develops, your Associate Director will be able to rely on you more and more to lead this team and account group to the point where you can step up to Senior Account Manager. Beyond that there is significant scope for career progression in this role, and we’ll be keen to you to develop your skills in people management, team leadership, campaign strategy development and wider agency contribution.

Red Setter is a disability-inclusive employer. We encourage applications from those with disabilities, including those with neurodivergence, mental health or long-term health conditions. Please contact us if you need any adjustments for the recruitment process. Any information you provide will be in the strictest confidence, and only used for the purpose of providing the adjustments needed.
