What’s the Agency like for the Account Director?

One of the UK’s most creative agencies that vies for the Agency of the Year Award and gets a special mention in the Gunn Report – the global index of creative excellence in advertising.

Part of a worldwide network, their list of creative awards is a roll-call of the best work in the industry.  They regularly haul home the booty of metal and pencils from creative ceremonies.

Ultimately, this is the agency we all dream of joining.  It’s the one we aim at throughout our careers and from which competitors take their measure. They have shot a creative arrow across the bows of their competitors and stand high above the rank and file.  

No other agency comes close to their creative offering and dazzling achievements.  Their creative could stop a beating heart and the delivery is slick and polished.  

A lot of agencies can dish up good creative that smoulders but never catches fire this giant among titans has lit up the industry and their talent burns brightest.

This is a happy ship with contented Account Handlers who can indulge their career aspirations.

 

 The Account Director role

A great opportunity for a Senior Account Manager who is willing to make the leap to Account Director in one of the world’s best advertising agencies by handling a hard core retail account that is mainly price/promotions.
