Client Associate (Graduate) | London | The Role

At SMG we value talent over experience and we are looking for a Client Associate to join our FMCG agency, based in the heart of vibrant London.

You’ll get exposure to a lot of great brands and you will be given responsibility from day one. You will be part of a great team who will always be on hand to show you the ropes, so don’t worry, you will not be expected to run before you can walk!

Day to day life of a Client Associate:

  • Managing client relationships, supporting the team in closing new business and ensuring continued loyalty with our existing clients.

  • Building strong relationships with clients and stakeholders, understanding their needs and helping to identify ways in which we can meet their goals.

  • Assisting in creation of client proposals, inspiring the brand with creative ideas and executions that will deliver results.

  • Liaising with our colleagues across the business, from planning team to campaign management and finance, to ensure the client’s activity is executed and delivered in a way that meets their brief and objectives.

  • Participation in strategic & creative brainstorms.

Someone that can bring enthusiasm, great communication skills, commercial awareness and the ability to build strong relationships with stakeholders both internal and external.

Our ideal SMGer will be ambitious and hungry with an interest in pursuing a career in shopper marketing within the retail or FMCG industry.

Most of our associates start off as uni grads, but don’t worry if you don’t have a degree, we’d still love to hear your background and story. Perhaps you are looking for an entry-level step into a client facing role within a growing marketing business, or have 6 months - 1-year experience. Ideally we are looking for a degree (2:1 or higher) and a B or above in GCSE English and Maths.
