There aren't many roles as special as this out there. The chance to live in Thailand. Yes you read that right, Thailand. Read on, it gets even better...
This independently owned core brand creation agency are on the hunt for a Creative Director to lead their exceptional design team. They're well-established and highly-respected, based in Bangkok, and working with clients all over South East Asia and beyond. They're often the "go to" agency for pitch lists. They compete with the global agencies in the region - but often with a creative edge those global agencies just can't match.
While most of their work is in the hotel and leisure worlds, they've been known to brand an airline and even a geographic region. Their current Creative Director, who came from the London branding/design agency world, will be leaving soon, so they need to find an equally impressive visual branding specialist to take over from him.
These are big shoes to fill so they need someone who not only has the passion and drive to create brilliant work but can also inspire the both designers and clients alike. If you relish developing talent, and watching your team grow and flourish under your guidance, this is the one for you.
For the right person, they'll pay a very good salary and package (and remember that the cost of living in Thailand is a whole lot less than it is here), plus relocation will be covered, and they'll give the new CD as much help as possible in getting settled out there - they want their people to be happy and inspired to do great work, so they'll go the whole nine yards to achieve that. We know this agency well and know that their people are a priority for them.
It's not a chance that comes along every day, and it's a big bold move - do you think you're up for the challenge?
If your curiosity has been peaked and your sense of adventure has been tickled, then send your cv and a few project samples of branding work you've led over the last 5 years or so
