Life at Awin

Emma Jones

Account manager Emma talks through some of the brands she has worked on since joining Awin, and her career path through affiliate marketing so far.

I am an account manager within the Key Account Management department at Awin. I started Awin in September 2015 as a Campaign Assistant and have since worked on some huge fashion and travel brands such as TOPSHOP, House of Fraser, Dorothy Perkins and Travelodge.

My role as an account manager is always varied and no day is the same. A typical week could include everything from forecasting and planning exclusive campaigns, to publisher and client meetings, attending industry events and analysing data to report on my client’s business objectives. There can be pressures within the role, for example when I have to turn around reporting to a tight deadline or get given difficult tasks from my client, but I enjoy problem solving and thrive off the challenges that come with the job.

To be an account manager at Awin, it is imperative that you are organised, personable, a strong team player, passionate about digital marketing and always keen to learn more about the industry. I love my job because it is largely about building relationships and seeing the impact that our carefully executed campaigns have across the client’s wider business. Being an account manager at Awin is exciting and challenging, but as much as we all work hard, we definitely play hard too.

Awin is an amazing company to work for, not only because of its connection to huge global advertisers and publishers, but also because of its inspiring and supportive management team who really work to build a community among their employees. At Awin you are always kept up to date about the happenings within your company through monthly company updates, department bonding days and team building opportunities that make you feel part of the family. We have beer fridge Fridays once a month, 4pm finishes every Friday and also have exciting annual events such as the Awin Black Tie and our ‘Aspen’ company summer party abroad every year. It is always very rewarding getting to enjoy an Aperol Spritz with my wonderful colleagues in a hot country after working hard all year!

The best part of working at Awin is its employees; it is full of friendly, welcoming and like-minded people who make Awin a joy to be a part of. The atmosphere in the modern office space is relaxed and sociable and I am proud to be part of such a great team.
