What’s the Creative Agency like for the Senior Account Director?  

London’s hottest new agency and the sweetheart of the industry.  This great hotshop has blown a fresh westerly wind through the creative world and they are in the running to win Agency of the Year 2016.

They have elbowed the larger agencies out of the way and punched above their weight on the new business front and brought home a series of wins that are the envy of the bigger networks.   This is a boutique agency that is independent yet medium-sized and built on a solid financial foundation.

There is a schism developing in the industry at the moment between the strapped-for-cash-networks and the buoyant independents.  More and more the big players are feeling the squeeze as the pressure is on to deliver more for less and they are in danger of becoming too executional.

However, this fantastic agency is on the up – not its uppers!  They are thriving and are in the enviable position of turning away clients and cherry picking the accounts they want to work on.

They are a magnet for clients who dramatically want to make a difference to their business and are happy to take a creative gamble.  

The agency is flying high and recruiting as a result of growth.
