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!


The Account Director role

No2 to the Business Director, the Account Director will be handling a well-known international financial account run from the UK.  The account relies on great creative thinking to support lots of product innovation by the client.

All the strategy and creative development is originated from London.  The client does lovely work and although the product is financial, the client views it as more of a lifestyle brand so there is very powerful creative and a lot of innovative thinking.

This is not an account where you spend your day joining the dots.  There is genuine opportunity to get your hands dirty playing with the paint pots and taking an experimental approach to a traditional sector where there is no room for cookie cutter thinking. 

Consumers need to be jolted out of apathy in this sector so there is far more edgy creative than you might expect and a willingness by the client to experiment with new ideas.

If you enjoy messing about with creative ideas and puzzling out business conundrums then this is a nice piece of business to make your name on.

Above the Line plays an important role along with content.  There is an integrated philosophy including TV, film, online content 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!
