Zimmerman Group - Assistant Account Executive - Advertising

The Zimmerman Group has an immediate opening for an ASSISTANT ACCOUNT EXECUTIVE. This position reports directly to an Account Supervisor.

From an experience point-of-view, the ideal candidate will have 1 to 3 years experience working in an advertising and/or promotion agency. Appropriate client-side experience would also be considered.

The Zimmerman Group works with clients in a broad role, encompassing most areas of marketing: broadcast and print advertising, media planning and execution, promotion, collateral materials, new products, market research,
packaging and strategic partnerships and licensing.

We are purposefully a small agency with a close-knit team approach. Our account staff has substantial autonomy to work closely with clients while being supported by a senior management team that averages over 20 years of experience. There's help and support when you need it, but you're free to do as much as you can. Initiative is a necessary trait for success here.

The Zimmerman Group has been in business for over 20 years and during that time we have worked with a significant number of Fortune 500 clients as well as an interesting mix of local, regional, and pro-bono accounts. We're proud of the fact that the vast majority of current accounts have been clients for over 8 years each. We're also proud of the fact that a number of our current clients have hired us for a second or third time as they have changed careers.

This position is available because we have recently added two new significant clients. Our current client roster includes three Fortune 100 clients and a wide array of smaller clients. We offer a broad experience that promises to challenge and stretch you. Based upon strong performance the potential for advancement is strong.

From a personal perspective, the ideal candidate will be someone who:
  • Loves a challenge and likes to learn and grow
  • Is good at developing close relationships and trust with clients, peers and management
  • Enjoys all aspects of marketing, not just advertising and/or promotion
  • Is looking for a long-term career, not just a job
  • Is highly motivated and takes lots of initiative
  • Loves to be part of a team and is a team player
  • Beyond very good medical, dental, 401k and profit sharing benefits, we offer some unique benefits – a view of Lake Minnetonka from your office window and a company boat that's docked in front of our office. We think you'll be able to work especially well sitting in front of the fireplace in the main conference room or sitting on one of the decks that overlook the lake. If you love downtown traffic and parking, this isn't the place for you, but if an Excelsior-Lake Minnetonka location floats your boat, this could be a great fit.

    Our goal is to fill this position as soon as possible. If you think this might be a good fit for you, please send us your resume.
