THE JOB / Account Manager, Partnership Marketing (Payment Services Client)

EXPERIENCES / Responsible for planning and executing event and experiential marketing programs.

Are you ready to tackle an opportunity to work with industry leaders on global brands? We're searching for an Account Manager to lead the sponsorship & experiential programs for a major payment services client on the Partnership Marketing team. We're envisioning our new team member will collaborate across one of Octagon's largest accounts to curate and execute strategic marketing opportunities and a variety of rare events for clients, staff and consumers. We'll rely on you to advance relationships with our client, and their corresponding partners who represent a range of industries: from high-end retail to mega stores, fuel to travel, grocery to digital retailers.

Do you have extraordinary experience in event planning, an extensive client and event management background, and experience in developing strategic recommendations? Then this opportunity is for you.

THE WORK YOU'LL DO

  • We'll look to you to guide the team through all aspects of event programming; from initial brainstorm through on-site execution and wrap-up

  • Be the day to day client liaison across multiple programs

  • Create tailored experiential event strategic plans

  • Run numerous projects simultaneously, both large-scale custom experiences and smaller-scale events

  • Facilitate the management of materials related to individual events, including but not limited to: digital programs, HTML invitations, ordering of premiums

  • Create, foster and further relationships with internal and external partners as well as outside vendors and properties

  • Develop program budgets and be diligent in all accounting and expense procedures

THE BIGGER TEAM YOU'LL JOIN

Where others see complexity, we see possibility.

Octagon is the global sports, entertainment and experiential marketing arm of the Interpublic Group. But if that classification doesn't do it for you, and it shouldn't, let's take it a step further.

We are what we believe. And we believe that while the world of sports and entertainment is full of opportunities and possibilities, sometimes the amount of choice can seem a little overwhelming. Even daunting.

That's where we come into play.

At Octagon we inspire brands, talent, and our people to see the world for all its potential. We then help break down the complexity and push forward so you can make your next right move.

WHO WE'RE LOOKING FOR

  • You have a passion and expertise in experiential program management

  • Bachelor's Degree and/or 5 years of meaningful work experience

  • You've worked in an event management setting and have had direct ownership over a project

  • You're an excellent project manager who can handle multiple programs simultaneously

  • You can provide solid examples of your success in building strong client relationships

  • Your experience includes budget management and/or reconciliation

  • Your dream is to supervise, lead and mentor more junior employees

  • Your communication skills both written and verbal are superb

  • You describe yourself as having a can-do attitude and a desire to succeed

  • Computer proficiency, including MS Word, Excel and PowerPoint

  • You're flexible and able to travel domestically (25%) and work weekends or holidays as needed
