The agency has the trust of its clients and what a client portfolio!  This is not a flabby network with a list of chest-beating blue chips but a canny shop with a small agency feel that has attracted an exciting mix of bankable accounts and challenger brands that are brave and smart and have lassoed a good number of creative gongs.

Their new-found confidence has brought in a great management line-up with strong self-belief which means that this is the agency to join if you are looking to get serious about handling truly great creative.  They have done it before and they are about to do it again.  This time make sure you’re at the party.

The culture fit and energy are quite important.  The Senior Account Director will need to be fun and quick witted with the ability to change tempo from a client meeting, to having a joke with the people round their desk.

This is a close-knit team who all trust each other and muck in to support each other.

The role would suit a Senior Account Director who is keen to have a large piece of the pie and take responsibility for the day to day running of the account and get great work out the door.
