More information about this job

Overview

360i is hiring on our New Business team to help the company refine and scale its new business operations during a period of rapid growth. 

 

This is a unique opportunity to get into a role that will have significant exposure to senior leadership at the company, and how great brand strategy, media and creative come to life.  You will receive significant training and exposure, and have the opportunity to shape both your role and your career path at one of the top agencies in the industry.

Responsibilities

  • Understand the mission, values and capabilities of the agency and help communicate them across platforms (from materials and decks to prospect meetings)
  • Create and assemble presentations for prospect meetings and pitches 
  • Respond to RFPs and RFIs by gathering information from necessary stakeholders and writing/editing responses
  • Manage pitch logistics for new business opportunities, including creating and leading timelines, keeping key stakeholders informed, setting up meetings, etc.
  • Assist where appropriate in developing any new or special materials needed for initial new business meetings, such as boards, booklets, etc.
  • Organize and maintain a central repository of all new business materials such as past RFPs/RFIs and key FAQs to improve the efficiency and quality of future responses
  • Help coordinate pitch debriefs and capture and share key learnings to improve our approach
  • Respond to select inbound leads to vet and qualify new opportunities 
  • Conduct prospect research to help refine our approach to engaging new prospects 
  • Maintain the new business prospect pipeline as well as ongoing reporting to senior management
  • Proactively monitor industry trades, new business sources and competitive websites to keep abreast of new business opportunities and competitive wins 

 

Qualifications

  • Highly organized. You’re creative, but that doesn’t get in the way of your ability to manage a mean project timeline. You’re organized, disciplined and know how to manage teams to get things done on time and on budget. Details, details, details.
  • Insatiably curious. You’re eager to learn new things to improve your contributions to the team and are ready and able to grow quickly.
  • A fantastic writer. You write elegantly in plain English. You know how to write convincing and persuasive copy and get excited about the opportunity to simplify complex topics.
  • A PPT presentation master. Okay, you don’t have to be a master per se, but you do need to have great PPT skills both technically and creatively. You know how to tell a great story and bring a presentation to life. (Keynote wouldn’t hurt either.)
  • Great with people. You’ve got strong EQ and an ability to listen to, understand and adapt to other’s needs.
  • A constructively proactive thinker. You don’t just do what you’re told – you find constructive ways to shape the way we do things and make them better.
  • Excited to be in an environment where you will wear many hats. We operate more like a startup than a 1000-person company- so we need people who are flexible and will pitch in where needed regardless if it's exactly part of "your job". You'll build strategy, manage logistics, design documents, among many more opportunities.  

Previous relevant experience:

 

  • 3-5 years in a New Business or Account Management role
  • Strong preference for Advertising Agency experience (integrated agency experience a plus)
