This independently owned, highly creative experiential agency, in the heart of Old Street, EC1, has a worldwide client roster and offices in London, Istanbul, Dubai and Mumbai. The global team is just over 130 strong, and London has 45 in its fabulous Shoreditch studios. Their expansion continues and this multi-disciplined creative agency has a strong vision and business plan ahead of itself. They don't take anything just by chance, and have built some very strong and trusted client relationships along the way - from retail to travel, leisure, consumer brands, as well as banking and more commercial brands. From brand identity, to retail environments, in-store, experiential, to digital marketing, consumer-facing brands where the customer experience is key. They have a 360-degree approach to design and creativity and can proudly say they are a multi-disciplined agency with experiential at its core. Their knowledge of consumer trends and customer expectations in once sector often proves invaluable to the other sectors in which they operate. And with their international insight into consumer needs and behaviour, they deliver a multi-cultural approach to design. Genius!

This opportunity for a New Business Director is an exciting one - this is not a new role, as its predecessor still works within the agency but has moved to another office overseas. So London is calling and needs a New Business Director to be their 'hunter', who will actively seek new business, be the strategic new business thinker and will be supported by a small marketing team too.

Key responsibilities:

+ creating and delivering on a global new business strategy, working with other heads of new business in other studios

+ heading up the London new business efforts, directing this appropriately

+ managing new business and marketing budget

+ increasing the agency's PR profile with help of marketing team

+ developing business opportunities and ensuring sales targets are achieved

+ ability to inspire your team, lead and deliver

+ excellent communication skills, ability to travel from time to time

+ excellent English language skills but any additional languages can only be a bonus
