M&C Saatchi offers jobs to 30 Team Saatchi staffers

SYDNEY - M&C Saatchi is understood to have offered jobs to the entire 30-strong team working on the David Jones account at rival Saatchi & Saatchi after it won the department store's $43m account from the agency.

AdNews reports the first team members have already moved across to work on the account with Paula Marreiros and Grant Morrell, joining M&C Saatchi as general manager and creative services director on the David Jones business.

M&C won the David Jones business three weeks ago, as reported by Campaign Brief. The account left Saatchi & Saatchi after 13-years and after a final two way shoot-out in a review that started back in February. BMF and DDB had been on the long list.

The lost of the 30 staff is a major blow to Saatchi & Saatchi's Team Saatchi division and redundancies are expected.
