Junior Account Director / Account Director (Charity Accounts - Integrated / TV) – Boutique London Agency – to £45k

This is a rare opportunity to become part of a successful team in a growing boutique agency. The agency will consider Account Directors, recently promoted Account Directors and Senior Account Managers who are looking for a step up to Account Director.

Even if you are currently a Senior Account Manager you will be given the Account Director title if you are successful at interview there.

In the role you will work on integrated activity that covers all of DM, digital/social, TV and mobile for a range of charity client accounts – experience in this sector is essential to qualify.

The Account Director Role

The agency are looking for a Junior Account Director to lead a team of three; a Senior Account Manager and two Account Managers.  

Clients all come from the charity / not-for-profit sector and will include a host of VERY well-known charity and not for profit client accounts.

The agency’s remit with these clients varies and covers brand positioning and identity, brand strategy and advertising, individual giving fundraising, legacy, events etc.

The Account Director Required

It’s crucial that you possess charity account experience and are excited by the opportunity to lead a team working specifically on NFP business – you should be passionate about the sector.

You will have lots of autonomy in the role with the support you need of course – and will receive a financial incentive for business growth on top of your salary.

The standards held at the agency are high; they live or die by their reputation and therefore are looking for someone exceptional.

What that means is that the quality of the team there is also high – the Account Director will be working with some incredibly experienced and inspiring planners and creatives. They obviously deliver comms, but the job will also involve a lot of strategy and conceptual creative work.  

It’s worth noting that the agency are not solely an NFP agency. They also have a range of commercial clients and they take learning from those clients – particularly in terms of CRM/tech – into their NFP clients.

An integrated skillset is a given and you must have broad channel experience including production – print inc. DM, digital/social, TV, (ideally DRTV) and mobile ideally too.

You will also have experience of managing senior client relationships and will be confident enough to run smaller pieces of business on your own with little day-to-day input from a Business Director.

The Agency

The agency have just been nominated for 8 Industry Awards – they are flying high..

The agency is a good fit for people who want to do excellent work with lovely people. They work hard but also know how to have a laugh / boozy party – so a good cultural fit is important.

Central London based, they have great offices and an enviable location. They are small (c. 30 people) so the culture is hands-on - they get stuck in!

No bulls*it, no jargon and no attitude. They are a team that do what it takes to deliver the best results possible for their clients.

Who will get the job?

Someone ambitious who wants to have a big impact and make themselves indispensable to a growing agency.

Salary & Benefits

Up to £45k depending on skills and experience.

In addition you will be working at an agency that possesses a fantastic culture (with soft benefits such as birthday day off, you can leave at 4pm once a month, ½ day off for Christmas shopping, great socials and legendary Xmas parties!).
