You’re curious, courageous and authentic.
What else do we have in common?
You’re creative, strategic and results-driven. You’re a great communicator and a great collaborator. You do the right thing. Those are our values, too. Bottom line:
We’re dedicated to making a difference for our clients and the world at large – and having fun while we do it.
Shelton Group is the nation’s leading marketing communications agency exclusively focused in the energy and environmental sectors. We’re the experts, and that’s reflected in our impressive and growing roster of clients.
We’ve built a highly creative team here in Knoxville, one that loves to work hard and laugh hard. And we sleep well at night knowing that we do good work: good for our clients, and good for the rest of us, too.
If you’re a dedicated professional who wants to advance your career in this rapidly growing and increasingly relevant sector – and you want to have fun while you’re doing it – Shelton Group just might be the place for you.
Shelton Group is seeking a senior-level account manager with 10+ years experience within a marketing communications firm and/or full-service advertising agency to lead and manage a group of accounts.
The account director must be equally adept at leading strategic marketing communications efforts and overseeing execution to ensure high-quality, efficient work that exceeds client expectations and optimizes agency profitability.
The position requires a solutions-driven individual capable of seeing the big picture without losing sight of details. He or she should be comfortable developing and moving forward with plans despite ambiguity, and the ability to lead and direct a team of account/project managers is a must. The account director must also instill confidence in clients, proficiently manage financial projections, and organically grow the business.
Strong verbal and written communications skills will be necessary for every aspect of this position. A four-year business or marketing degree is required. Experience with B2B marketing, building products, energy efficiency and/or environmental sustainability is a plus.
Are you incredibly detail oriented? Do you love to see a project through from start
to finish, and excel at ensuring it stays on task, on budget and on time? Would
you prefer to work in a creative environment where you’re constantly learning
about new industries and new ways to solve marketing challenges? If so, you
may be a great fit for a project manager position at Shelton Group.
We are looking for a sharp self-starter who is comfortable working with a healthy
level of ambiguity and is capable of bringing order to what some people may view
as chaos. The ideal candidate will have two to four years experience in marketing
communications, preferably with a full service advertising or marketing
communications firm, the ability to manage coordination of a lot of deadlines and
deliverables at once, excellent verbal and written communications skills, a lot of
good old-fashioned common sense, a good head for business and a four-year
degree in marketing, communications or business.
If this sounds like you or someone you know, we encourage you to apply or
forward this opportunity to other qualified candidates.
