Account/Project Manager


Are you looking to make an impact through education-based, cause-related marketing?  At CarrotNewYork, we assist our clients - corporations, nonprofits, NGOs, and government agencies - in reaching billions of people with awareness, social impact, and behavior change initiatives.  Our Account Managers have many responsibilities (and they all tend to hit at the same time). Your most important role is the effective and efficient handling of our client work. You will be tasked with maintaining day-to-day contact, building relationships, earning trust, exceeding client goals, and generating agency revenue. As a key member of the Account team, you will work closely with our Strategy and Creative teams, clearly communicating project goals, project deadlines, organizing strategy and creative sessions, and keeping everything on budget. When there are new business opportunities, you will be asked to bring an experienced account-centric voice to our proposal, bringing our process, our capabilities and our plan into focus.

All this, and we haven’t even mentioned passion. At CarrotNewYork, we’ve been creating social impact campaigns rooted in education innovation for 40 years. Innovation comes in an array of forms, but at CNY it is always based on sound educational principles which turn causes into action, and action into positive change in the world. None of this is possible without an Account team that drives everything we do. Sound interesting? Try it on for size.
