Vacancy: Account Manager

Parent Zone is seeking a talented Account Manager to join their Partnerships team. This is a full time, permanent position. 

The role

The role will involve managing some of Parent Zone’s funded projects, as well as writing funding bids and proposals for corporate clients.

You will have experience of leading on a variety of large-scale projects, managing grants and budgets and reporting to clients and funders.

This will involve:

  • Coordinating all project activity and outputs

  • Crafting clear project plans to ensure activity and outputs are delivered on time and within budget

  • Responding to, escalating and resolving issues quickly and effectively as they arise

  • Working closely with teams across Parent Zone to ensure they are briefed on their role in a project and have regular oversight of their input

  • Ensuring each project meets intended outcomes and deliverables and that all activity is in line with the wider Parent Zone strategy

  • Regular reporting to Parent Zone SMT, the funders/clients and other key stakeholders

  • Representing projects for Parent Zone at events and meetings, as required

  • Researching, writing and coordinating funding applications and client proposals

  • Helping identify and research new funding opportunities and potential partners

While you will be managing a variety of Parent Zone accounts, one of the main ones you’ll be expected to lead on, with the support from the Partnerships team and SMT, is for Children in Need.

The project

A Million and Me is a major new initiative from Children in Need that aims to improve mental health and wellbeing outcomes for children across the UK, aged 8 to 11. Parent Zone is working with Children in Need to develop a new digital tool and library of content that will facilitate improved communication between children and parents around mental health and wellbeing. The project forms part of Parent Zone’s growing youth participation and engagement work and the development of a range of new digital services.

As the Account Manager, you will manage and lead on all activity relating to the Children in Need A Million and Me project and contribute to the Parent Zone youth and whole family offer.

You will sit in the Partnerships team, but also work closely with Parent Zone’s Family Engagement Worker, Head of Digital, Creative Director and CEO.
