Account Coordinator : The Advertising Club of Edmonton

Job Description

About Us:

We are an ADvocacy agency that tears down walls between our clients and their goals.

We specialize in projects with high stakes, complex stakeholder environments, and a mission to move hearts and minds. We get excited about telling untold stories, shifting perceptions and attitudes, and helping clients make big moves toward their vision for the future.

That can mean creating a campaign to correct misinformation, an immersive experience that highlights important social issues, or helping clients redefine their relationship with partners and stakeholders. We don’t fear big questions, conflict or complexity – those are all signs that we’re working on issues that matter.

Role Description:

You’ll have the opportunity to work alongside our public relations leaders, our creative director, our strategists, and the rest of the team daily. We operate as a unit on projects, meaning you’ll be part of that top-performing, supportive and integrated group – there’s no real creative/accounts divide here, and the partners at Berlin work alongside the rest of the team as we solve complex, interesting, and meaningful challenges. You’re not going to be stuck doing simple, boring bits as you learn the ropes – here, you will be right in the fun, challenging work with us, from day one.

The successful candidate will be expected to support the account and strategy teams with administrative, client- related tasks and help build the communication and marketing strategies that have been an important part of Berlin’s success. You will be able to juggle multiple projects as project manager and be the keeper of information to help guide and steer our internal teams.

Feeling like you don’t have the right qualifications? Some of our strongest account people have come from sociology, journalism, politics, or design backgrounds – but they embody our values, write well, and are fully committed to our clients and projects. We still want to hear from you.
