An Amazing Account Manager - with a good knowledge of printing
Your day will go something like this……arrive in the morning, answer your plethora of emails, check on your clients jobs and estimates, take the phone calls, liaise with the Hunts production team, engage in meetings with clients, liaise with the Account Directors and estimators to produce estimates, book jobs and track work. Make tea for your colleagues or have tea made for you, stare longingly at the pool table which none of us have time to play, fight back when a stress ball scuffle kicks off in the office and have a laugh. We place massive emphasis on attitude – so you need to have bags of the stuff. You will also need to have some pretty good organisational skills too; those stress balls are not just for throwing, they are for practicing the juggling of the million things you will need to do all at once.
That should give you a feel for the job – so how about you – well, you need to be methodical, diligent, a laugh, serious, sensitive, aware, finger on the pulse, a love of delighting clients and colleagues and possibly slightly mad to join such a company. You need know print – maybe you’ve run a press or been a print finisher or done some design work or worked in repro – in other words you have some print experience of some kind.
Embrace our five key values Finesse, Enthusiasm, Disruption, Truth and Caring; live and breathe these, the most important of which is caring – to be more specific caring for your colleagues. Eventually you get to the end of the day somewhat exhausted but elated from playing your part in a rock & roll team and an organisation that seeks continuous and never-ending improvement. Yes it’s hard work and can get quite stressed at times, but it is also exciting and energetic.
Interested? Check us out – we’re not necessarily everybody’s cup of tea! Hunts are doing print differently…..it’s all about a caring work place where everyone can flourish.
We are doing some pretty impressive work for our clients; stunning design, beautiful print and print finishing, mailing, storage and fulfillment, award winning app. development, web design with on-line marketing portals. BUT our main revenue comes from the £5m+ of promotional print work that we produce in our high tech leading edge litho (B2 and B3) and digital (Xerox Versants) and wide format/Exhibition Display (flatbed, and on the roll inkjet) 24hour print departments.
We’ve won awards in 2017 and have a history of winning in marketing, digital innovation, ethical business, CSR, supplier of the year to name a few – so whilst the above articulation of this opportunity might be, eh, unusual to say the least, the company is a serious heavy weight leading creative print business known both locally in Oxfordshire, nationally and internationally – many of our clients are international businesses.
Please send me your CV with a letter as to why you think you might be just different enough to take this role on. It will be a blast…..
I look forward to hearing from you – Timon Colegrove
