Major Players have a great opportunity for a large Direct and Digital agency based in Central London to work across a large Financial Services client.

(Financial Services experience is desirable but not essential for the role, working across a similar type of client is required)

The suitable candidate will be an Account Director looking to step up to Senior Account Director level and should be prepared to really take hold of accounts and grow them.

You will be required to primarily deliver email and DM campaigns although we have templated many of these, meaning they can be delivered quickly and cheaply, giving us more time to focus on innovation.
Their innovation is mainly focused on digital projects and content-led campaigns. Making them a success requires a team who can navigate the challenges of getting them to happen in a risk-averse environment with inexperienced clients.

The team are bright and lovely - they work hard and want to deliver innovative and exciting work. Many of their day-to-day contacts are quite junior and are keen to learn so we try to run regular upskills and feed them interesting industry info to get them inspired.

They are increasingly working with other teams, such as the website, social and insight teams, and this role will be key in building those relationships and growing the work from them.

They are looking for an experienced AD, ready to take the next step, or a SAD looking to get deep into a single brand.

They want someone who takes pride in themselves, their agency, the work they create and the brand they manage.

You must be able to mentor, guide and support your team, as well as encourage them to strive for excellence in everything they do. Leadership and team development should be a particular passion of yours. Pragmatism, organisational skills and a calm head are a must.

Above all, you should want to become a trusted partner to the client - bringing great relationship building skills and a flair for problem solving along with go-to creative and strategic expertise.

In summary:

Supportive management style
Strong relationship builder
High standards
Attention to detail
Pragmatism plus bravery
A natural organiser and multi-tasker
Big agency process experience
Experience across DM, EM, Web, Content
