Republik is looking for an account manager who wants to work for brands that take concrete action for the environment and society. The person we are looking for, in addition to being called upon to coordinate large-scale projects for various clients, will also monitor internal processes, from brief to client presentation.
Alright, so what's the job?
The job is to change the world through the Creation of Social Capital™. But if you want us to be more precise, here's a list of tasks you'll have to do in your day-to-day:
- Responsible for project management, setting up meetings & deadlines, assigning tasks to the right internal resources ;
- Identification of relevant external resources and monitoring of internal processes ;
- Advise and coordinate from the brief to the final client presentation ;
- Responsible for the day-to-day management of your clients and the profitability of the account while ensuring a healthy relationship with your clients ;
- Also participate in brainstorms to assist the strategy, creation and production teams ;
- Together with the account director you will participate in the development and improvement of the processes and tools of your department.
What kind of background are you looking for?
Honestly, we don't think it's a good thing to have a too-long list of criteria. So let's just say these are some of the traits we think might help you do your job well:
- Minimum of 3 to 5 years experience in a similar position in an agency, on the client side, in a relevant media, or on a personal project ;
- Relevant university training in marketing or communications ;
- Ability to manage pressure, prioritize, and work according to tight deadlines ;
- Strong analytical skills, ability to understand budgets and advise clients according to their needs ;
- People, leadership, and listening skills, as well as strong aptitudes for approaching customers and partner ;
- Great team spirit and collaboration, ability to adapt, resourcefulness and autonomy ;
- High-level proficiency of both spoken and written French and English.
What kind of people do you hire?
First of all, let us be clear: we will always prioritize people from minority groups at equivalent skills and experience. That being said, here are our five social standards that guide us in our mission and hiring process:
1 - Be Committed
We're all on the same team and we share a common vision for a better world. Building a better world takes time and energy, so we have to make commitments—to our colleagues, our clients, and our planet.
2 - Stay Curious
Our 9 to 5 doesn’t define who we are. But who we are defines our 9 to 5. We cultivate our passions, we seek discovery, and we stay open to the world. Keeping our fire alive is a full-time job.
3 - Think Bold
We don’t do average. Our ideas are meant to hack the status quo and challenge brands to dream about what they can become. Forget impossible, because to change the world, you have to be crazy enough to believe you can.
4 - Speak Real
We like our stories real and our facts checked. No B.S. Our culture is inclusive and our collaborations based on integrity and honesty. Ego is not your amigo.
5 - Rise Together
Our collaboration exists above titles and our trust in one another is more than just task descriptions. We work together with more empathy than criticism, more vulnerability than ego, and more listening than talking. Because 1+1=3.
And what are the perks?
All agencies offer pretty much the same thing, right? A good salary, nice offices, a decent insurance coverage, etc. Of course we have all of that, but that's not what sets us apart. What makes us different is that we truly care about our employees and we walk the talk. (We actually won a prize for that!)
We are very flexible with remote working and vacation time. And we understand how work-family balance is important; there were 4 new babies this year at Republik!
We have a beautiful office in downtown Montreal, but we also have an office in Tremblant to make sure people stay connected with nature. We have online yoga classes, a cash-back program for those who use public transportation, lunch-and-learn sessions every month, and one big offsite event every year with inspiring guest speakers and team-building activities. Oh and everyone gets Friday afternoons off in the summer to enjoy the beautiful weather!
But most importantly, our team is what makes Republik different. Everybody brings their passions and convictions to work, so that means you’ll always find a camp, ski, bike, or beer buddy! Or someone to talk to about your vegan lifestyle or mental health.
There's so much more, but you'll have to come see for yourself!
