The Agency for the Senior Account Director

An independent agency network with a strong presence on the world stage; they refused to take the king’s shilling and sell their soul to a large corporation so their integrity is intact and their creative reputation undiminished; yet their global reach is wide.

This fantastic advertising agency has set fire to the bland creative that’s being churned out by cautious corporates.

They are in the Top 10 because they have sought to be the agitant of the advertising industry rather than just the naughty child taunting its competitors.  

They have stripped away the flummery that a lot of agencies build around themselves and drilled down to the essence of what makes a great idea.  Their thinking has shaken up the industry and they have put creative back into the limelight as opposed to just shining a torch on the process.

All eyes are pointed towards their talented mavericks who spell trouble for the competition and deliver creative awards for their clients.

Pretty exciting stuff if you are brave and want to be creatively disruptive in an edgy agency that produces a magical alchemy

 
The Senior Account Director role

The role is to handle the agency’s largest and best-known account.  This is the agency’s flagship account on which they produce some of their most progressive and creatively driven work.  

This is jewel in the agency’s crown and they are starting to win awards and recognition outside the category.  This has become one of the most exciting accounts in the industry offering some of the best creative opportunities around today.

The role offers real leadership opportunities on a brand that is in the public eye.  You will have day to day contact with senior management with support from a strong team where account handlers are developed very quickly.

The agency has recently won a lot more business from the client.  In addition to handling the more traditional above the line advertising, the agency has scooped up all the digital work and romped home with all the social/content work.  

The agency is now master of all it surveys thanks to their award winning activity last year.  You will be joining a fully integrated account handling TV, print, digital display, owned channels and social.

The account has a large budget and the client has plenty of ambition.  You will have the opportunity to work with super smart, level headed clients on a large, fast moving and complex piece of business.

This is a meaty role for a strong Senior Account Director that requires significant plate spinning and strong strategic and creative judgement with the ability to navigate a complex set up of stakeholders and expectations.

It’s a good gig, giving you the chance to grasp brand strategy and champion great ideas that are channel neutral.
