What’s the Agency like for the Account Director?

There is definitely a whiff of creativity on the breeze as advertising’s talented hotshops cluster near the Silicon roundabout.

An independent creative agency that is medium-sized and based in the trendiest part of Town. This clever shop is an agent for change and ignites new brands with life whilst spurring tired brands to get their mojo back.  They are a challenger brand to the big networked agencies and create big brand ideas that engage influential under 30s.

This is an agency that knows how to speak to millennials. 

The culture is supportive, down-to-earth, fun and creative.  The agency is entrepreneurial by nature and is committed to a great work environment with lots of social activities that include team-bonding experiences, away-days and both Christmas and Summer parties.  The agency’s away trip is usually to a European hotspot.

This independent agency has a strong list of ambitious clients who want to make a significant difference to their brand.  Clients like what the agency brings to the table in the way of innovative thinking.  

The agency is clever at disrupting established categories with new brands that break the rules in addition to changing the commercial horizons for existing brands that are seeking new markets.

It is talent and fear of failure that is key to this agency’s meteoric rise.  The hunger has propelled them forward as they tear up the rule book and move away from convention.

The agency is home to some very clever talent from big well-known agencies that look at how strategy and ideas can be choreographed to offer a unique brand experience across the different media channels and address the business challenges of the 21st century.

The account is run from London and the agency is the brand lead on the account and creative and strategy are devised in London and rolled out to global markets.

This blue ribbon account is one of the agency’s most exciting clients with a great creative heritage and significant media spend.  The agency has been responsible for some of the client’s most iconic and exciting campaigns.

This is a production heavy account with lots of branded content delivered through social, digital and experiential.  It would suit an Account Director who enjoys having big pieces of the creative pie on their plate.

There is a strong bond with the client which will stand the Account Director in good stead since the Account Director will be running their own gig and will be the day to day contact on the account.
