This is a fantastic opportunity for an individual with a sales and/or marketing background to join our established team working with home builders (HB) across the UK to produce quality digital marketing content. You will be the main client facing representative for the HB team and given significant responsibility from day one.
As our HB Account Manager, you will be responsible for all business within the HB sector. At the start of each RV financial year, you will be involved with setting HB turnover and meeting targets with our Commercial Director. To hit these targets, you will work closely with our HB Account Executive to request, review and approve quotes for CG, video, 360 virtual tour and photography projects. You will also work alongside our HB Account Executive to determine which clients we meet with and when.
Generally once a project has been passed from the Client Services team to the Projects team, this will be the end of your involvement with the project. However, your input may be required at various stages for bespoke and CG projects to ensure it fits the client brief and expectations; often you will have attended a client meeting at the start of the project, so you will have the best understanding of their requirements.
Once a client meeting has been booked, you will be the main RV representative for attending these meetings, which will generally see you out the office on average 1 or 2 days a week. These meetings vary from meeting with regional Sales & Marketing Coordinators, Managers & Directors, to the Group Head of Marketing for a Top 5 UK home builder. The topics you will discuss will range from briefing in our ‘bread and butter’ projects to discussing more detailed CG animations, bespoke video projects or new technical and/or branding updates.
Regular updates on progress will be presented to our Company Directors in monthly Board meetings.
We are looking for an enthusiastic individual to join our Client Services team. You will:
- Generate business from new and existing accounts with UK home builders.
- Book key account meetings and attend all regional and head office account meetings up and down the UK to generate sales pipeline opportunities.
- Be a Line Manager to our HB Account Executive.
- Work with our HB Account Executive to ensure ‘post-meeting’ information & quotes are sent in a timely fashion.
- Work with relevant RV team members to gain an in-depth knowledge of all our HB solutions to create & request quotes which reflect client briefs and which we can deliver.
- Assimilate and clearly communicate all relevant information from the client in order to pass approved projects to our projects team for delivery.
- Work with our Commercial Director and HB Account Executive to forecast and achieve annual turnover and meeting targets & develop and deliver our HB marketing plan.
- Be responsible for managing and supporting HB account sales and marketing activity.
- Review solution profitability, pricing & packages and actively contribute to the creative solutions we provide, ensuring we remain competitive in the industry.
- Report your account progress monthly to our Board of Directors.
- Represent RV professionally at all times in both verbal and written communication but with a friendly, enthusiastic and personal nature.
- Be responsible for keeping abreast of sector trends and competitor work and positively influencing RV’s products and services.
- Be an inspirational team player who contributes to the wider team.

Work-life Balance Manifesto
The feedback we receive from our team suggests that this is an unusual policy for an agency, hence the mention here in the job spec. This is from Tom, our CEO: “You will get paid for the hours you work or you will be given the time back.” Quite simply, you will never be asked to work more hours than contracted, without receiving that time back in lieu or being paid overtime. Note that travelling to and from meetings is logged as working time at RV, so arriving back late from a meeting means you get time back or paid additional hours.

Testimonial – Dan Robinson (RV Senior Developer – 2010-2018)
I’ve been at RV for eight years now. I wasn’t here at the start, but I’ve been here long enough to see the team grow from ten people in a single room to the 35+ people we are today. Honestly, leaving RV has been one of the hardest choices I’ve ever had to make. There’s genuinely not a person here that I don’t like and there’s nobody I wouldn’t trust. We make incredible things. Everyone I know is blown away by our CG work, our videos are cutting-edge across all sectors and our web development is perfectly tailored to our clients’ needs. Our project management is so good that some of our clients have adopted our systems themselves! I want to say that RV is filled with some of the most talented people I’ve ever met, but it wouldn’t be true. You’re all skilled, and the reason you’re all so damn good at what you do is because every one of you works hard. Every one of you tries to outdo themselves and nobody settles for “good enough”.
