The Account Director Role
Reporting into a Business Director, as Account Director you will get the opportunity to create comms across a range of channels and be the guardian of truly integrated high profile campaigns.
The Account Director will be supported by an Account Manager and Account Executive.
You will used to working on through the line client briefs, delivering a seamless through the line customer experience from TV, digital through to CRM, working closely with digital to make sure that the full customer eco-system is considered.
You’re creatively ambitious and always looking for opportunities that go well beyond the brief, personally championing work from brief right through to case study.

The client is facing challenging times and as a result this account is fast paced, with constant changes and you must be someone who is used to rising to this kind of challenge. Ideally you will have come from a similar background, working on a fast paced high functioning retail account.
You must be able to think ahead, anticipate needs, plan accordingly and react quickly.
Although the brand recently relaunched with a new tone of voice and vision, moving the company from a traditional supplier to an exciting and forward thinking brand, the main focus of your job will be managing the client teams to successfully help the business achieve its vision.
There is a huge amount in the pipeline so this will be a very active role from the start and the chance to have a huge impact in the development of the brand and its differentiation in the sector.
Account Director – Experience Required
The agency are looking for an Account Director with integrated knowledge and preferably with TV/broadcast experience, but that isn’t essential
What they really require is a solid integrated, smart Account Director who can lead strategic conversations in acquisition and retention across all platforms - predominantly experience with the ‘hard working channels’ - digital display, search, content, PPC, email, VOD, press, OOH/DOOh etc – all targeted and retargeted.
They don’t currently produce any offline DM for the client or undertake its implementation; that is all done internally.
The agency do need someone who is direct marketing trained and CRM minded however to help produce hard working campaigns that produce results.
The Account Director therefore needs to know data, performance, analytics and targeting, segmentation profiling and implementing it across the channels mentioned above.
What you are Like – The People The Agency Need
• Someone whose mindset for all challenges is ‘yes’ and someone who works alongside their colleagues to figure out ‘how’. In other words, they get a kick out of solving problems big and small and take pride in defining and agreeing objectives and outcomes.
• They are helpful, collaborative, enthusiastic and decisive. They always contribute constructively and when they don’t know the answer they say so and then make it their business to find out.
• Someone who always delivers against their word, and when they can’t, they manage expectations honestly and directly.
What the agency will offer you
At the agency you can expect a great working environment and superb benefits to match, including free breakfast at the in-house cafe, gym discounts, childcare vouchers, contributory pension, cycle to work scheme and much more.
