The Agency for the Business Director

An independent integrated agency with vim and vigour that has built a highly successful business on sound foundations thanks to their growth mindset.  They are relentless on the new business front.
They are 50-strong and in a good place; the future is looking rosy.

This is not an agency that plays around at creative; they see it as being the muscle of the business and keep it well honed.

Here process exists to allow creative to flourish; not perish.  Their four key behaviours of the agency culture are: imagination, curiosity, courage and collaboration.

This is the next generation of creative agency that likes to tease its audience as well as wooing them.  The agency pioneers change and recognises that its chief role is to impact the client’s bottom line through creativity.

It is the natural home for the restless brand that is constantly chafing against the narrow confines of category and constantly seeking to outflank its competitors.  The agency’s belief system is one of agnosticism: a great idea should work across all the channels.

This is a great time to join an agency that is thriving and fast becoming “One to Watch”.  It has garnered a great reputation and is drawing in clients who want to make a noise about their brands.  The agency likes to persuade its clients to fly in the face of danger rather than dishing up easily digestible creative that is quickly forgotten.   

This is a great opportunity for you to bask in the glory of a successful agency that is roaring ahead.


The Business Director role

Are you a creative fidget who hates sitting still and wants to be out from behind your laptop spreading the gospel of great creative to your clients?  Then this is the perfect place for you to thrive.

The Business Director will be responsible for coaching and developing a client service team comprising a GAD, 2 x ADs, 3 x AMs (with further additions planned).
The Business Director will report into a Managing Partner.

The agency is looking for a Business Director with tangible creative passion and   ambition.   The role would suit a Business Director who is a good self-starter with a proven track record in growing the client’s business and inspiring the team.
