1. Stick and Move – Senior Account Person, Philadelphia

We recently penned a flattering piece about Stick and Move, so we’re pleased to see the shop has a job opening.

Stick and Move is an ad agency that believes the strongest way to build a brand is to connect with people through conversation. We call it Conversationality. We partner with clients like Leatherman, Yakima Products, TradeKing, VitaminWater, adidas and many more, and our work spans from traditional (TV, print, radio, web advertising) to new media (viral, social networking, widgets) to guerrilla and beyond.

We are currently looking for a mid to senior Account person to focus on new business development. Someone hungry to work in a highly creative, informal environment yet skillfully and professionally handle high-stakes client work. A fun, competent, intellectually curious person interested in helping build our agency, from our bottom line to our culture to our Thursday nights bowling team. New business experience is necessary and 8+ years industry experience is preferable. Passion, an open mind and a drive for innovation are a must.

See the website here. If interested, email Jared Scott: jscott at stickandmove dot com

2. Saatchi & Saatchi – Management Supervisor, New York

Titles like “management supervisor” always confuses us a bit. Thankfully, the job posting comes with an explanation… of sorts.

  • Acts as primary liaison with client management, serving as a true partner and invaluable consultant on the client’s business.
  • Manages the development of integrated marketing plans for brands.
  • Keeps well-informed on all of the accounts activities.
  • Oversees financial management of the account including budgeting, control of expenses, and accurate income forecasting.
  • Seeks opportunities to secure additional business from existing clients.
  • Ensures that the resources of the Agency, are deployed with maximum effectiveness.
  • Supports the creation of breakthrough creative work and effectively sells great ideas.
  • Leads the entire team with inspired thinking and great ideas
  • Identifies structured and unstructured training opportunities for team members, to encourage continued growth and development of employees.
  • Supports agency policies, systems and decisions.

Sounds like you’re going to be a middle management type who everyone slightly resents for meddling in the creative process. No matter. The job probably pays well enough that pulling a two year stint won’t kill you. Get more details here.

3. Leo Burnett – Corporate Affairs Associate, Chicago

Candidate will work closely with senior team members to develop communication plans, as well as brainstorm media pitches. They will also have internal communications responsibilities (memos, events, intranet site content, as well as external communications (develop communication plans, write press releases, research, dissemination of news, uncover media opportunities, build relationships, etc.

The opening line in the “about our company section” is: “We stand behind our philosophy that great ideas are nothing without great execution and great follow-up.” Hunh. That’s your philosophy? Isn’t that everyone’s philosophy and do you really need to stand behind that one? Shouldn’t that just be a given?

Anyway, sounds like a fun job. Go apply here.
