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 Account Director will be managing two accounts.  The first is an innovative international travel company with its roots in the UK.  This is a fast-paced account offering plenty of creative challenges as the client has a “test and learn” mindset and applies this to everything they do.  The agency has a great relationship with the client who thrives on innovation and experimenting with new ideas.  

The agency is the brand lead on the account and the work is completely 360 spanning everything from TV through to digital and social.
The second account is an online gaming account with a particular focus on sports.  This is a new win for the agency.

It is an incredibly interesting time for the account which operates in a competitive category full of small brands jockeying for position which all have some sort of product or communications differentiation.  The client doesn’t currently have either of these!

But they want to change this so they can quickly start competing with the category leaders and this is why they have chosen this particular agency.

The Account Director will be managing on-going campaigns and creative development for the UK and Europe.  The client wants to make great category defining work and they are growing very fast.  There is huge opportunity for the Account Director to make lots of brilliant stuff.

This year the agency will be launching new creative campaigns for the UK and Europe doing full above the line campaigns working their way through the sporting calendar.

The client is bold but thoughtful as well.  They want to 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 client’s ambition and there is a recipe for award winning work.  

There are a lot of creative opportunities and the briefs are very interesting.

There is an integrated philosophy and the account includes everything from TV and print to digital 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!
