The Integrated Creative Agency for the Account Director

An independent integrated marketing agency that specialises in advertising, PR, social media and digital communications.  This is an incredibly creative agency with a “people first” policy. 

More than any other agency in the business, this clever shop gets integration and their expertise is drawn from all walks of life.

The agency approach is rooted in the people and audiences their communications are designed for.

The talent is housed together rather than being hived off into different silos and the
result is a genuinely media neutral offering.  They have a knack for winning challenger brands and turning them around.

The agency is medium –sized and they broadly cover most sectors: FMCG, automotive, financial, retail, charity and government.  

What makes the agency particularly appealing is the type of client they attract.  

Whereas the larger agencies tend to attract the big buck bottom feeders that are driven by procurement, this agency is a magnet for the challenger brand and works closely with senior marketers to make a real difference to their clients’ business.

The agency culture puts huge value in the people who make it what it is – offering a supportive working environment, industry-leading benefits and exceptional career development opportunities.

There is a very good social element to the agency that includes a busy social club, subsidised gym, monthly pre-paid drinks and up to 30 days’ holiday.

The Account Director role

This role is perfect for an Account Director who is keen to lead across a range of integrated accounts and projects.

The agency is recruiting as a result of growth and the hands-on role will involve taking overall responsibility for multiple accounts and projects across the full communications mix including TV/video, radio, print, social and digital.

As  well as running the day-to-day account work, the Account Director will have responsibility for the strategic direction of the accounts and will be cultivating and maintaining senior client relationships, inputting into the professional development of team members and managing account profitability and utilisation.   

The Account Director will be handling a mixture of consumer and government –based accounts. There is a strong new business work stream so there is the opportunity to get involved with pitches as well.

The government work is extremely interesting and looks at habit forming behaviour in the consumer and what makes people adopt certain lifestyles.

This is very exciting stuff for an Account Director to really scratch below the surface and understand the “Why” of a creative brief and get under the skin of the account; there is a generous budget and the clients are up for exciting creative.

The agency is good at blue sky strategic thinking in addition to delivering inspirational creative.

There is plenty of exposure in a supportive environment and the opportunity to progress quickly.
