What’s involved?

The nature of Account Management is centred, unsurprisingly, on the management of a portfolio of client accounts. This means you will often be looking after a combination of both existing and new business opportunities, often starting with a network of existing contacts and accounts before being charged with sourcing and developing your own territory.

You will need to be a ‘people person’, engaging frequently and directly with key decision makers and contacts from your account base. Looking after the full sales cycle, you will oversee projects from pitch through to completion: therefore strong organisation skills and a head for budgeting and management are paramount. Delegation and overseeing of activities relating to projects will place you in a position of responsibility and you will normally be charged with working to set targets that will contribute to overall business objectives.

Delivering presentations, undertaking and positioning client meetings, communicating between different areas of the business and completing all necessary administrative work will form part of your daily routine. The role promises variety and opportunities that will take you beyond the normal 9-5.

What do I need?

Many of the skills obtained through your degree will set you up for a successful career in Account Management and it’s these core competencies that form the essential requirements for this particular area of sales, rather than specific qualifications or industry experience. Candidates will benefit from:

  • Excellent communication skills, both written and verbal

  • Confidence and diplomacy, with the ability to deal with a range of personalities at all levels of business

  • Strong organisational and time management skills

  • The ability to motivate and work effectively with others

  • Flexibility and a willingness to work outside the standard 9-5

  • A professional manner

  • Drive, ambition and determination to succeed


What’s in it for me?

Account Management forms the foundation for continued success in many organisations across a vast range of industry sectors, and the rewards on offer tend to reflect the value of Account Managers to business. Entering into this area of sales, you can expect: 

  • Commission-based pay, with starting salaries of £19K+
