Head of Client Engagement 



It’s wonderful if you can join us in Calgary, and almost as wonderful if you’re anywhere in Canada.


All candidates must have a valid Canadian work permit. Evans Hunt will not be providing sponsorship at this time. We’re open to considering international candidates working remotely during our business hours in Mountain Time.


Job overview

As a Client Partner at Evans Hunt, you’ll be leading a portfolio with multiple accounts. Our engagements run the gamut of marketing and communications activities—luckily, you’re an expert.


You’ll be responsible for your portfolio’s management, growth, satisfaction, profitability and quality of deliverables. You’re a people person, so managing your accounts’ senior client relationships will be a breeze. You’ll confidently provide strategic and tactical leadership while ensuring that Evans Hunt always delivers exceptional quality work.


With your energy, empathy, polish and professional pizzazz, you’ll fit right in.


Show us what you've got! If Client Partner feels like a reach, apply anyway. You may be a born Account Manager or Account Director.


Who we’re looking for

​​Your professional experience has given you a solid understanding of core digital or technology agency services and creative processes such as ad campaigns, web builds, content programs, analytics, digital marketing and communications. You believe in a collaborative, multidisciplinary approach to projects and that diverse perspectives lead to stronger work. 


If the person below sounds like you, you should definitely apply. 


You’re an experienced leader. You set your delivery team up to knock it out of the park. You’ll document clear goals, client needs and challenges for every account. 


You love interacting with clients of all levels and industry backgrounds, from CEOs to admins.


You’re an expert marketing generalist. You’re confident in talking strategy because you know what it takes to execute in all major marketing areas. Brand work, digital work, campaign, print and media—you love it all!


You constantly seek new opportunities to deliver value. You understand our value as a strategic partner (rather than a simple vendor)


You don’t settle for mediocre ideas or executions. You’ll end each day proud, knowing that your projects are the best they could possibly be. You ensure that the final brilliant product lives up to the original brilliant vision.


A day in the life

Working at an agency, you'll have the opportunity to work with various clients across a diverse range of industries simultaneously. One day you might lead the charge to extend the brand of a top-tier law firm. Another, you might be working on the websites of local grocers, or even the companies that grow the food that supplies them. And if that wasn’t enough variety, the next day you’ll be working with post secondary institutions or worthy nonprofits who protect the most vulnerable. No day is the same.


That said, there are a few activities that will likely take up most of your time. These include

  • Managing long-term engagements with multiple project tracks and teams, confidently setting and managing client expectations.
  • Working with skilled discipline leads and project teams to execute plans—anticipating, preventing and solving problems before others even know they exist.
  • Dazzling a room with a well-crafted presentation and excellent communication skills. You’re so good, your slideshows get standing ovations.
  • Flexing a strong knowledge of digital/web technologies, technology vendors and third-party technologies.
  • Forecasting, tracking and taking ownership over their financial performance.
  • Supporting new and exciting business developments.


What's in it for you?

Evans Hunt is a full-service digital agency focused on the integration of strategy, creative, and technology. Our experienced team of 90+ employees delivers complete marketing solutions for top local, national and international organizations. We’re a fun place that does good work. Here’s what we’re offering:

  • Salary range: Starting at $100k, subject to experience.
  • Culture & lifestyle: We’re an agency and take pride in our work, but family and wellbeing need nurturing too, so you’ll have flexible hours and lots of opportunities to celebrate with your teammates. A respectful and inclusive workplace in which all are welcome is important to us and we’re not much for micromanaging.
  • Office availability: We’re currently working remotely during the pandemic, with optional in-office desks available for booking, if you choose.
  • Stuff: A laptop and a phone allowance will be provided, along with health and dental benefits, a health spending account, and some other nice perks.


What we’ll ask

There are a few things we'll ask for as part of the process:

  • Cover letter: Tell us a little about yourself and your fit for the job.
  • Resume:  A summary of your previous work experience, as well as notable projects you’ve worked on, will help provide a glimpse of who we’re interviewing if selected.
  • Portfolio/case studies: If you make it to the interview stage, we may ask that you present your portfolio and/or applicable case studies.



This is an anticipatory interview because we're growing. We anticipate filling the position in the summer.
