Who are we?

Wunderman Thompson is a creative, data and technology agency built to inspire growth for our clients. Our new agency provides end-to-end solutions through creative, data, commerce, consulting and technology services at a global scale. We bring together over 20,000 creatives, data scientists, strategists, technologists and so many more expert minds, across 90 markets. With a truly global reach, we work with some of the world’s most ambitious brands, partnering with them across communications, experiences and platforms. We deliver world class, inspiring work that has impact! In the UK specifically, our client list includes brands such as; Shell, BT, HSBC, Microsoft, Selfridges, Nestle and Samsung.   Our breakthrough creativity has always helped our clients’ businesses succeed and we’re proud to have been voted Campaign’s Customer Engagement Agency of the Year in both 2017 and 2018.

What will you be doing?

Your role will be an Account Director, to be the core of our HSBC Global team within Wunderman Thompson. This is an account where relationships are key, so you will build strong bonds with both our clients and with our global network – so we need someone confident who is an excellent communicator. Not all business can be done by email, so you will be speaking to clients every day on the phone and be leading on client meetings. 

A commitment to creativity is key: the main role of HSBC Global is to help our network markets create better, more effective work. As such, this person will be less involved in production (shoots etc) and more in strategic projects, working hand in hand with network teams who will be responsible for executing the final product.

Who are you?  

  • You will need to know both strategy and advertising process well, be that shooting a photography library, creating social video content, or a DCO digital campaign.
  • The role would suit a mid-level AD, or a high-flyer who has recently been promoted but is looking to quickly advance.
  • You will be a fast learner – HSBC is a beast to get one’s head around. The role would suit a mid-level AD, or a high-flyer who has recently been promoted but is looking to quickly advance.
  • Lastly we want you to be truly interested in creative and passionate about what you do. We’re a fun team because we care about our Clients and our work. We are a diverse Global team so people with different backgrounds are actively encouraged.

What can we offer you?

We don’t settle for people who can just do the job, we look for people that go beyond that and always push our thinking to be better than yesterday. We believe that this is what makes our agency a great place to be – a space where you’re never far away from the best minds to learn from.

We want you to be comfortable and proud every day of the week and have created an open and inclusive environment where you can bring your whole self to work. We don’t want you to just fit into our culture, we want your uniqueness and diversity of background to add to it and make this an agency where we all have a real sense of belonging and purpose. We are a community.      

We have a number of programmes and initiatives designed to support your career and wellbeing. There are exciting knowledge sharing programmes delivered through lunch and learn sessions, cultural opportunities through our exchange programme, and you can have an impact on the wider community through one of our charity initiatives. Your career development is important to us and should you ever choose to move on from Wunderman Thompson, we want you to be better than when you joined us. YOU Time will provide you with the framework and support needed to reach your career aspirations, supported by a range of learning options for every type of learning style. Your mind, body and soul are also taken care of through our varied wellness programmes but we like to have some fun here too, so you could get involved in our culture club, find love through Wunder Dating or if you’re the chosen one, take a spin on our Wheel of Wunder!

There really are no shortage of opportunities here for the right person that is prepared to roll their sleeves up, get involved and collaborate with those around them to deliver the best work for our clients and our agency.
