Here’s a quick solution. Ask your client to log into their Microsoft Ads account. After logging in, they should click on 'Tools' at the top of the page. Under 'Tools', they should navigate to the 'Setup' section, and then click on 'Preferences'. Within 'Preferences', they'll find 'Account Settings'. In this section, their account number is prominently displayed. It’s an 8-character alphanumeric code. They should send you this code.

Now, as a manager, log into your own Microsoft Ads account. Navigate to 'Link to accounts', and enter the 8-character alphanumeric code provided by your client. By doing this, you'll send an invitation to your client's account. They'll receive an email with a link which they must click to approve the request. Once they do this, you’ll have access to their account.
