Account Manager - Newport
Account Manager jobs
Customer retention is one of the most important aspects of running a logistics business. As with any business, retaining profitable and reliable clients can make you the envy of your competitors by minimising the time and effort spent chasing new clients.
But retaining clients is not just about sitting back and enjoying the ride; it’s an active craft, involving constant communication with clients and senior management to ensure smooth running, met deadlines and fulfilled aspirations. Account managers are therefore a key employee in the customer retention effort.
Reporting to the account director and senior management, the account manager is a human interface with the clients. They will know their clients’ demands intimately and in turn, the client should appreciate the personal service and understanding. In large companies with many clients, this would be impossible without the account managers.
An account manager might also have a team of subordinates dealing with specific clients or sectors, and the manager will need to not only instruct them but also remain completely aware of what they are doing strategically and in detail.
The skills required
The account manager will need to be a flexible person, able to deal with different clients in their own unique ways. A deep knowledge of logistics and the industries they are dealing with will be essential. As they will be trusted by the customers to deliver on promises they make, they must also be able to both stay well connected with those within their company who make delivery possible, but also realise the limits of possibility so as not to overpromise and underdeliver.
Good, accurate reporting skills will be required, and a strategic mindset, able to interpret goals from management and account directors and turn them into results, will be essential.

Account Manager Jobs in Newport
Although Newport can trace its history back to at least medieval times, when its castle was built, it was the Industrial Revolution that turned the town into what it is now, a city of over 140,000 people. Its location on the south of Wales, adjacent to the Severn Estuary opposite Bristol, made it an ideal place for a port to transport the vast amounts of coal, as well as iron, that were being mined from South Wales. For a time, the town had a larger population than Cardiff.
Although the docks are not as busy as they used to be, the town has remained active, with a diverse range of manufacturing, service industry and governmental offices being based there. It is home to Sims Metal Management’s huge scrap recycling plant, which boasts the world’s largest car crusher and links by road, water and rail. The UK’s HQ of the Office for National Statistics and the IPO (patents office) are based there, as well as the Welsh HQs of the Charity Commission and the British Red Cross.
Panasonic and International Rectifier have large factories in Newport, and EADS’s security division, Cassadian, is also located there. With such a diverse range of industries and great communications, Account Manager vacancies are quite common in Newport.
