Account Director, Creative Agency, Central London £45k - £48k

What’s the Creative Agency like for the Account Director?

All agencies are not the same!  There’s an odd misconception about what is the right size agency for a brand.  This agency hits the sweet spot.   

It is a good sized agency with an independent feel and a friendly culture that has realised its creative ambition without losing its special character.  It isn’t afraid to ruffle feathers and is adept at snatching business out of the jaws of the bigger networks which are brasher but less thoughtful.  

They have managed to bag several sought-after accounts thanks to the fact that their clients give them some of the highest referral ratings in the industry.  The standard of work is high and keeps improving – a lot of it pretty surreal!  

If you are cooped up in a sterile office feeling as if you have joined a bank rather than Adland, then this quirky agency with its outlandish offices and surreal work will help you get your mojo back!  

Formally recognised as being one of the best employers in Adland, this agency seems to weave magic into the industry and is modest enough not to shout about itself but let others do it for them. 

Their investment in talent has paid off and their work is backed by sharp writing and great creative innovation. 

The agency is incredibly friendly with a good social side and one of the best bars in London!  


The Account Director role

Pitchtastic is where it’s at!  The agency has been busy wooing and dating and is now bedding some new business.

Have you got digital baked into your DNA?  This agency wants to hear from you!

The Account Director will be handling digital strategy and creative development across a suite of FMCG brands on a new global win.

The client wants to get closer to the consumer in order to be able to respond more quickly to market trends.  Data and creativity will prove crucial to content and marketing and the experience the customers have.  

The Account Director will be working as a partner to a forward thinking client; getting under the skin of the brand and looking to predict market trends and their impact.

The client is creatively ambitious and keen to break away from the staid campaigns that have traditionally defined the sector. The client is motivated by what consumers want rather than what the competition is offering – often these two issues get confused! 

The agency is seeking an Account Director who has strong digital and data experience but with a good creative background and a track record in risk-taking.

The Account Director will have a lot of autonomy.  It is a great role for an Account Director who is looking for more headroom and to gain recognition.  

Teams are kept deliberately lean to ensure there is plenty of exposure and there are big gaps between the levels to ensure there is space and autonomy. However, although teams are lean, they are not skinny(!) and the agency is renowned for its supportive environment and nurturing culture.

So, this is not to be confused with the sweatshop mentality of under-resourced agencies where lean teams mean late nights!  This agency is mindful in its approach and keen to put its workforce first; there is a great work/life balance: account handlers regularly take a lunch break and socialise together in addition to getting away on time.  

The agency is officially one of the “happiest places” to work in the industry.  They are excellent at mentoring and ensuring that there is on-going feedback so that everyone feels stimulated and has the right stretch.  

The agency has a great culture and vibe with live gigs, craft and mindfulness courses and its own in-house beer!
