So how would you describe your role?
As a Marketing Manager the work I do helps to form the public image of RBS and NatWest. I’m based within the Brand media team and work alongside colleagues in other teams such as Direct and Online. Account manager jobs involve developing and managing strategies for public communication, I need to be very attuned to the bank’s business objectives as well as our customers’ needs – and so I also look for ways of making cost savings. For example, jobs in account management may involve sourcing better deals for print work.
In marketing manager jobs we develop creative communication plans up to 12 months in advance, so it’s my job to ensure that everything’s in place to implement them – as well as compiling data on project performance. Another important aspect of my role is coaching and supporting the development of the team.
What kind of skills do you need?
Marketing manager jobs require you to have good people management skills. Not just for building stakeholder relationships across and outside of the business, but for when I’m giving feedback and ideas to the creative development team on their briefs and concepts. Jobs in account management are not just about being able to get the best creative copy out of the door, it’s also about day-to-day budget management – and fortunately I have a good head for figures. The workload of account manager jobs often has conflicting priorities – dealing with up to 10 different strategic contacts at any one time – so you have to be prepared to say no sometimes. Patience is a virtue too; with an organisation this size, it can sometimes take a while for decisions to be made.
Have you been given any training to help you perform your role?
There’s a wealth of personal development and training available in marketing manager jobs, some of which is accredited by the Marketing Society, so it will be recognised for the rest of my career. Jobs in marketing management also allow you the option of job rotation or making lateral moves across other areas of the business to broaden my experience.
Is there anything about the role that you think might not suit some people?
The budgetary and financial aspects of marketing manager jobs may not appeal to some. Or, if you like to follow each project through from start to completion, you might not be comfortable with the fact that you’ll need to delegate a lot of the implementation to others.
What do you enjoy most about what you do?
Marketing manager jobs allow you to get real satisfaction from being responsible for marketing work that’s very prominent in the public eye – and working for a large firm seeking to revamp its brand gives you the chance to make a real impact. As jobs in account management represent the Marketing function, they allow you to have a seat at most tables in the business and get to work with senior stakeholders at a strategic rather than operational level. And I know it’s been said before, but I love working in a fast paced environment where no two days are the same. I did wonder what the marketing team culture would be like in a banking environment and when I got here, I was happy to see that there’s a real buzz about the place.
