Business Director, Integrated Creative Agency, London, Soho £90k - £110k

The Creative Agency for the Business Director

This is one of the most famous integrated creative agencies in London.  It tops the new business table and recently won Agency of the Year.   This is because it is one of the few agencies that actually does what it says on the tin!  

They have big ideas and stand as a beacon for creativity with their maverick entrepreneurialism.

They are key players on the pitch warpath and remain an irresistible choice to clients as they manage the tricky business of converting pitches but offering good levels of service to their existing clients.

They have an exciting portfolio and have built their reputation on turning challenger brands into stars.

More than any other agency, they know how to shake up a category and get tongues wagging about their work.

They get branding, yet have always been media neutral and embrace the rapid changes to the media landscape from social media through to TV.


The Business Director role

This agency gets the importance of account handling and the difference talent and energy can make to the business.  This shrewd agency believes in investing for the future.

They lionise creative risk taking and know there is no value in a big haul of low-calibre awards.  The agency focuses on the “hard – to – win” Pencils that are a marker of excellence in the craft of creativity yet are only sparingly awarded to greatness.

The Business Director will be handling a new win for the agency.  This is a pretty large piece of business and will stretch across the whole of the agency network.  The agency is the brand lead and will be developing all strategy and creative.  They are seeking a Business Director with international experience who is very senior and completely integrated and who ideally speaks a couple of languages.

The Business Director needs to be thoroughly steeped in above the line with a good grounding in social, digital and brand.

Entrepreneurial self-starters thrive at the agency and this is the secret to their ability to take their client’s brands into the arena of popular culture so that it is talked about and transcends regular media channels.
The type of Business Director to thrive at the agency is one who is opinionated with plenty of dynamism and ambition.
There is something quite powerful about an agency that has held onto its creative integrity.  A lot of the creative networks have lost their heritage to the bean counters who have taken over by stealth: slowly chipping away at The Work.   This clever agency kicks up its heels and rebels at convention.  


Highlights of the Business Director role:

  • Joining an ambitious creatively driven top 10 integrated creative agency
  • Handling an incredibly exciting new win
  • Managing a well-known international account
  • Winning creative awards
  • Managing media neutral accounts that involve TV, print, digital, content and social


Desirable Experience for the Business Director role:

  • Experience form a well-known creative agency
  • Proven experience on a big international account
  • Experience of running a large piece of business across a network
  • Ability to provide strategic leadership
  • Integrated creative agency background including TV and digital
  • Languages
