We’re looking for a savvy, personable and entrepreneurial Account Director who would relish the challenge of making their mark on our small but talented brand agency. We have a genuinely flat structure and a real team spirit with a great atmosphere.
Using your mix of commercial understanding, brand experience and charm, we need you to help embed us with clients, manage delivery, ensure the highest quality output and maximise accounts for the agency. A sense of humour and an ego-free approach are also essential.
We’re after a ‘roll your sleeves up’ approach; there will be times when we need help with things that may feel beyond - or below - an Account Director position. You will need to have some understanding of all the accounts in the agency, working with the Managing Partner on resource and client delivery.
You will be supported by an Account Manager and the Managing Partner also provides some account resource.
We’ll want you to challenge our thinking and dissect the brief, helping us to produce the best possible work. You’ll need an eye for detail and rigorous proofing skills with excellent written English and grammar.
As someone who understands the client and their business, when it comes to idea generation and critiquing the team’s work, your input will be invaluable. You’ll also be required to write a mean brief and a bulletproof proposal.
You’ll be overseeing a number of accounts at once and be fully involved in some. These will be a mixture of key accounts that are end-to-end branding projects and one off items of collateral. We work with businesses of all shapes and sizes but part of your appointment is to allow us to reach higher and hone our offering.
We value openness and honesty and don’t tolerate politics. We’ll be introducing a bonus scheme this year when we hit targets. If that doesn’t excite you, we’re probably not the right agency.
Anatomy was set up in March 2016, made up of four partners who work in the business. Our skill sets encompass research, marketing, brand strategy, design and copywriting.
We specialise in brand positioning and identity, as well as providing marketing strategy for our smaller clients.
We have a flat structure and we’re open about financial performance. The rest of our team consists of a Project Manager, who will report to you, and a mid-weight Graphic Designer, supported by freelancers and consultants.
We have clients in cinema, food and restaurants, technology, healthcare, consulting, fashion, jewellery and travel. However, as we become more proactive and streamlined we will focus on 3 core areas: Leisure/Cinema, Property & Placemaking, Private Wealth/Financial Services.
We’re a driven lot. But enjoying our work and creating a fun, supportive and relaxed working environment has always been our primary motivator - ahead of fee income and taking work at any cost. We generally don’t work late and enjoy company drinks when we can.
We’re bringing in an Account Director to work with the Managing Partner to help manage the workload so we can actively look for new business and develop opportunities with existing clients.
Every business is different, with its own unique challenges around audience and brand. We are a brand, design and strategy agency, pulling things apart to find answers. Putting them back together again to make the most of the future. Nimble and lean with a simple structure, we think, create and make things happen to differentiate and inspire.
What we're looking for
- Experience running brand projects end-to-end: Research -Strategy - Identity - Roll Out
- B2B & B2C experience
- Excellent written English and proofing skills
- Understanding of client needs and expectations
- Strong commercial understanding
- Ability to handle demanding clients and manage their expectations
