The Agency for the Account Director

This all-time great advertising agency has always been the nation’s favourite; attracting exorbitant talent.

They are world famous for creating genre-bending work and have a knack for picking up all the glittering prizes at the award ceremonies; dancing like a boxer on quick, eager feet and flaunting their talent for the industry to see and admire.

Their position is unassailably in the Top 10, based on their belief that brands are built by conversations rather than communications.  

They are clever at constantly adding value to the client’s business by stretching the client creatively rather than being pushed back.  

At this agency you live the lifestyle! They are big on people who have interests outside of agency life and can express themselves beyond their job.   Attitude and personality flourish here!

The agency is a genuine meritocracy for talent and entrepreneurs who put themselves forward for new opportunities will find themselves advancing rapidly up the career ladder.

The agency has kept up to speed with the shifts in the cultural and technological landscape and they produce powerful creative that invades the popular culture.

However, unlike the new kids on the block who knock out gutsy, noisy creative that is polarising, this gem of an agency knows how to play the subtlety card and strike home  with a lustrous, lyrical narrative that touches the emotions.

Their creative work stands the test of time and they are recognised for courageously breaking new ground.

This is not an agency for the faint-hearted or those who wish to get safely to the other side!

Handling a prized portfolio of new car launches into the luxury sector means that the agency has to stay at the top of its game on this account and keep the creative bar high in order to create standout in a crowded market.

The account requires a strategic understanding of Global vs Local operating models and the ability to liaise at a senior level with all the European country marketers to align their strategic approach.  

This will be an exciting opportunity for an Account Director who wants to help a great piece of business rattle the competition and put their name to some phenomenal creative.

The client’s ambition matches that of the agency: to raise the creative bar and be a marker for creativity and daring in its sector.  

Eye-catching creative is the client’s weapon of choice!

The account is busy and varied with lots of different projects running at the same time. The Account Director will have the opportunity to work across advertising, digital and social media.  The account is full of creative promise.

The agency is seeking an Account Director who has complete TTL experience as the role is across the spectrum from social media all the way through to TV.  Previous experience on pan-European or global accounts would be a massive bonus.  

If you are an Account Director who has the appetite to take on and build strong client relationships, own projects and handle creative brilliance then this is the perfect role for you.

The agency doesn’t tend to go for a “type” but looks for ambitious individuals with the desire to influence creative work and strategy, with the passion and drive to go the extra mile for their clients and who enjoy being part of a culture that is built around collaboration.

More than any other, this brand knows how to pique the consumers’ interest and stimulate demand.  It’s not so much about the customer journey but giving consumers the ride of a lifetime!
