Do you want to work somewhere where two weeks are never the same, eat cake and be part of a fantastic, fun team? JCM is looking for a new Senior Communications Account Manager to join their team.
We’re on the lookout for a kind and creative communicator to come and join our fab team of 12 lovely humans at JCM.
To us, who you are, what you believe and your passion for communicating all things rural, food and farming is what matters most. Where and how you live – and work – is less important to us because balancing work and life matters.
We build very long-term relationships with our clients and partners, with people who share our values – integrity, kindness and inclusion. These businesses include, ABP Food Group, AgriScot, BASF Agricultural Solutions, East Coast Viners, Institute of Auctioneers and Appraisers of Scotland, Farmstrong Scotland, Groundswell, the Oxford Farming Conference, RHASS, Quality Meat Scotland, SAC Consulting, Scottish Agronomy, Scottish Enterprise, SQC, The Green Farm Collective and Turriff Show.
Our team works from home in England and Scotland, and out in the countryside, gathering stories about people, food, farming and land-use and communicating the related challenges and trade-offs of farming practices, land use and food choices. We also have two offices – one in Turriff, Aberdeenshire and one in Newton Stewart, Dumfries and Galloway – where some of our team work all, or some, of their days.
We love cake, in fact, we REALLY love cake. And despite being spatially distant, MS Teams means we are never socially distant from each other.
To give you a flavour of what we do, we are – agriculturalists, horticulturalists, writers, designers, campaigners, videographers, marketers, strategists, PR gurus, event curators and organisers, and podcast and content creators. We can also milk cows, grow veg, lamb ewes, drive tractors and bake bread. What unites us is the love of stories well told.
As a Senior Account Manager, you will be responsible for working with our clients to give them the best advice and to support them to deliver strong, creative campaigns. You will need to be very organised and have – or develop – a great grasp of what is happening in the industry.
If you have a background in marketing communications, journalism or PR, are digitally savvy, and have a love of our land and what it produces, send us some insights on who and where you are, what you have done and how you could fit into our team. Be as creative as you like.
The role in brief:
- Senior Account Manager
- Working from home, or from one of our two offices (Turriff / Newton Stewart) or a combination of home and office. Regular team gatherings
- 14% pension contribution and enhanced benefits
- 26 days holiday plus bank holidays
- Training and development funding ‘pot’, inc. CIM, CIPR, writing, digital, audio etc.
- Career progression opportunities
Get in touch with us by 31 July 2023 if you are interested. We are looking for a start date of 1st September, or earlier depending on your availability.
