Leeds List Staff

Leeds-List is a next-level digital agency that delivers compelling local content for readers and market-leading advertising campaigns for clients. We’re growing quickly – do you want to be our next Account Manager?

Think Leeds-List is a magazine? Think again. We’re a digital agency with our own media platform.

But not your run-of-the-mill agency, that’s for sure. Yep, we do massively successful paid campaigns for household name clients, but we manage to do it without the BS, unbalanced work-life and clickbait approach you’ll find elsewhere. It turns out it’s possible to work hard and smash it out of the park while having fun, getting home for tea and enjoying a sprinkling of doggy snuggles throughout the day. If you’re looking for your next digital role with growth potential and opportunities galore, but you don’t want to be stuck in the agency grind, read on…

It’s an agency, but not as you know it

We’re the best place for clients who want real results. Put simply, we own our own platform with a truly engaged audience, and that means we don’t have to do the nasty stuff that a lot of the agencies do. We’re not a content mill, churning out keyword-stuffed rubbish for clients that don’t know any better. No, we’re obsessed with data science, and we use our friendly tone of voice, backed up with a response-driven marketing approach, to deliver win after win for big companies.

The likes of LNER, Sky, Channel 4 and Opera North come to us because they know that we can get industry-leading results for their advertising campaigns. A click-through rate of 22% for CityFibre? A frankly brilliant site-wide average time-on-page of 2 minutes, 26 seconds? That’s what you get with a brand that puts the reader experience first, doesn’t clutter its website with pop-up ads and communicates a client’s key messages in a way that isn’t a turn-off. Looking after our clients is important to us, and that’s where you come in…

Everything an Account Manager should actually be

Our dream Account Manager is a people person because you’ll be the link between our key clients, our sales team and our crack squad of writers. It’s an exciting, ever-shifting role that is all about added value. This isn’t a writing job – you’ll be managing multiple client campaigns and guiding them every step of the way, from concept to delivery to evaluation. You’ll need to be a multi-tasker and a quick-thinker who enjoys a fun, fast-paced environment that’s never dull.

Are you comfortable communicating with clients at every level? Putting together briefs for our writers? Digging into data so we can make sure our campaigns get the best results? Seeing what works, what doesn’t and ensuring we keep delighting our clients, time after time? Good at organising, planning and passing on feedback? Yes? Then we’d really, really like to talk to you. No two days are the same, and you’ll be using your personal skills and digital experience to keep our clients coming back for more wins. But what’s in it for you?

Grow with us – and get great rewards from the beginning

Work-life balance is important to Leeds-List. Working late is the exception, not the rule. We have fun, not forced fun – and there’ll be VIP invites along the way. We pay good salaries to good people, with an annual performance bonus. You’ll get 28 days holiday as standard – plus all the bank holidays and your birthday off. It’s an office-first role, but we pride ourselves on flexibility too. We have dogs in the office, because they bring joy to the 9-to-5.

You’ll be joining a scale-up company that punches well above its weight, and we want you to be a key part of our ambitious growth plans. You’ll have the chance to truly influence the next thrilling phase of Leeds-List. That means opportunities for you and we’ll provide the support and training you need to progress, develop and make a real impact. The results we’ve been achieving for our clients mean we’re growing fast, which is why we’re recruiting Account Managers at all levels. If all of this sounds like a refreshing change from being a tiny cog in a big wheel, then give us a call.
