Wanted: Senior Account Manager

Livity Africa is looking for a Senior Account Manager to work across our exciting young company, focusing on building the Live Magazine brand to become the leading youth media channel in SA.

Launched in 2011, Live Magazine SA is a youth lifestyle magazine that is 100% created by 16-25 year olds around South Africa. With a main production office in Cape Town, the magazine itself is distributed all over the country, and amplified by its online channels – via mobi, YouTube and social networks.
This role will be focused on business development, nurturing excellent relationships with existing and new commercial clients, and overseeing excellent delivery of campaigns and content within the youth team.

As well as being an excellent communicator and highly organised, you would need to be extremely proactive, willing to learn and able to multi-task under pressure. It’s also absolutely essential you can relate well to young people of a wide range of backgrounds, and understand youth culture.
You’ll work closely between our sales, management and media mentoring teams, as well as with our rolling team of around 20 full-time trainees, who join us for a 3-6 month cycle and create all the content.

You’ll be managing clients, developing and pitching campaigns for the magazine and wider business, and making sure those campaigns are delivered on time and to a high quality. Live has already worked with an impressive list of clients, including Google, Coca-Cola, eTV, eNca, Metropolitan, Ster Kinekor, Johnson&Johnson and Puma.

This is a rewarding and demanding full-time role based in Cape Town, with regular travel to Johannesburg. You’ll need a minimum of 4 years’ experience in the marketing or advertising industry, with two years at least at Account Manager level.

Please apply with a CV and covering note to [email protected] by January 25th 2013.
