One Simple Plan Seeking Talented Account Manager

One Simple Plan, a communications and brand engagement agency, is looking for a responsible and driven Account Manager to join our team. One Simple Plan is a growing shop that was recently recognized by the Minneapolis Regional Chamber of Commerce as the "Emerging Business of the Year." You might not know us by name, but you certainly know our clients by name. Our agency has diverse clients that range from big national brands, to fast-growing local brands, to small local businesses, in a variety of industry categories. What our clients do have in common is they all have unique, interesting stories and passionate audiences. We are proud to say we don’t work with just anyone. Our efficient, effective approach and grounded perspective is what sets us apart: fewer meetings, more action, less discussion, more doing. Simply put, we figure things out and make things happen. We’re strategic, creative, clever, enterprising, and effective. We strive for fulfillment and achievement.

So, how can you get involved?

We are seeking a talented communications professional to join our expanding team and help manage the day-to-day business of their assigned accounts. Specifically we are looking for a mid-level account manager. Public relations experience is a plus, but isn’t imperative.

Our employees are well-rounded individuals who take on different challenges each and every day. The account manager will have responsibilities as such:

  • Day-to-day management of client accounts including task lists and budgets
  • Lead account teams to ensure projects are executed and goals are met
  • Strong writing and communication skills
  • Experience with earned and social media strategies
  • Development and coordination of communication campaigns for clients
  • Multi-tasking across different account projects and different account teams
  • Collaborative approach to projects with company employees and clients
  • Client relations and leadership

The ideal candidate will:
  • Be a college graduate with 5+ years of experience – agency experience preferred
  • Possess strong written and verbal communications skills
  • Excel in a fast-paced environment that requires organization, selfmotivation, and multitasking
  • Exude an understanding and appreciation of how public relations creates value for organizations
  • Think strategically in communications in the business sense
  • Be experienced and capable with Microsoft Office suite programs
  • Be a forward-thinking person who is dedicated to making a difference with their ideas
  • Value achieving clients’ business objectives on time and within budget
  • Show leadership abilities – on both projects and with managing teams.
  • Be reliable and responsible
  • Have a healthy restlessness to learn and improve every day.

More about One Simple Plan
We are structured on two parallel pillars: communications and brand engagement. A lot of our client work overlaps with these two pillars, generating some of our finest work. At One Simple Plan we provide our clients with the highest quality of service and commitment to get the job
done the right way.

Perhaps most importantly, we are looking for someone who will leave ego at the door. One Simple Plan has a relaxed culture and flat hierarchy where everyone makes an impact and learns from each other every day. We are serious about doing great work for our clients but have a lot of fun in the
context of doing so. "The Grind" will never be allowed to permeate our office.
