Fabulous opportunity for a heavyweight Planning Director to join the senior team at one of the best regarded integrated agencies in the Midlands.

This integrated agency is one of the best around both in terms of culture and client portfolio so if you're a senior planner, this should be top of your list.

This agency's strategic and creative strength is exceptional and has seen them develop one of the strongest client portfolios in the UK. So to be considered you'll need an innate ability to take spot truths in insight that others would miss and that make the difference between good campaigns and great ones.

We're looking for a board level operator who'll take the planning function to new levels, so it's critical you've worked in senior planning roles for leading integrated ad agencies and can demonstrate an extensive track record of success.

In terms of background you'll be driven by strategic vision and creative intelligence and will have worked in similar roles for well known integrated agencies and boast experience of working across a diverse mix of accounts (ideally both consumer and b2b). Given the range of activity, you'll need an ability to work across all forms of campaign activity from TV to digital and everything in between.

Core requirements include:

* Creative, strategic and an innovative thinker across all channels
* Proven ability to build and nurture senior client relationships
* Highly skilled at using customer insight to deliver ground-breaking, award-winning multi-channel strategies
* Passionately collaborative
* Exceptional presentation skills that excite clients and colleagues

You'll be working with the cream of the region's creatives and account handlers and will have a daily opportunity to get under the skin of some of best brand names out there. Their approach is centred around developing robust creative propositions that nail business objectives and deliver clear commercial returns for clients. And in turn the agency.

Many have relocated from far and wide to join this agency. None have regretted it. Wonderful opportunity.
