Account Manager - Roxburghshire
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 Roxburghshire
Roxburghshire is a historic county and modern administrative area, now part of the Scottish Borders county. Its traditional county town was Jedburgh. To the south east of the county borders is the Northumberland National Park. Within Scotland the county borders Roxburghshire it to Berwickshire, Peeblesshire, Dumfriesshire and Selkirkshire.
The Scottish Borders council area was created to address the sparseness of population in southern Scotland, and Roxburghshire is no exception. Wherever you are within Roxburghshire, you are more than an hour’s drive from Edinburgh or Newcastle, so on the face of it, Account Manager jobs would not appear regularly here. However the presence of agriculture can create some openings, so it’s worth checking, although the cities will clearly present more options.
