Freelance Digital Account Director, Creative Agency, Central London, £290 - £300/day

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 slug it out with brash campaigns, this gem of an agency knows how to channel uncompromising restlessness and manage creative paranoia to produce a heady mix of gutsy, magical work that stands the test of time to become industry classics.

Courageously breaking new ground, this is not an agency for the faint-hearted!


The Account Director role

The agency is seeking a seasoned Account Director with a strong digital background  to handle a well-known international account that relies on great creative thinking to support lots of product innovation by the client.

The role is temp to perm and will run until the end of the year with a view to being made permanent in January.

The lucky Account Director will be taking different strokes to those stuck handling monolithic accounts in networks where impetuous creative is quashed by endless research.

This is creative that sings rather than reasons!

This is a well-known international account that is run from the UK with all strategy and creative development originated from London.

The client is likeable but challenging and is determined to be a category-disruptor and leave the traditional behind.  The account would suit a big personality who likes to flex their creative muscles as the client won’t be shackled to convention and creative is their weapon of choice to fight off any competition.

The client is bold but thoughtful as well.  They work closely with the agency to throw a lasso over the head of fickle consumers and reel them in.  The Account Director will be handling a dynamic account whose mission is to tug at the attention span of the time-poor consumer.

In a nutshell the account has that rare troika of supple creative, immaculate delivery and a genius for storytelling.  Put that together with the clients’ ambition and there is a recipe for award winning work.  
There are a lot of creative opportunities and the briefs are very interesting.

The Account Director needs to have digital experience as content plays an important role.  However, there is an integrated philosophy and the account also includes TV, print and social media. 

The agency is supportive and friendly and fizzes with positivity.  There is the expectation that the Account Director will move swiftly up the career ladder as the agency encourages and nurtures talent.

Overall it’s a winner!
