The Agency for the Business 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 Business Director role

This is a fabulous opportunity for a Business Director to help lead and grow one of the biggest pieces of business in one of the leading advertising agencies in the world!

The agency is seeking a Business Director to handle a well-known UK based tech account that wants to maintain category leadership in a busy, mercurial sector.   The brand operates in a highly competitive market place that is racing to launch an innovative new product next year.  

The lucky Business Director is joining the account at a great time with the focus on handling a massive new product launch doing a cradle to grave campaign across all the comms touch points and producing creative work that will resonate with the young, discerning millennial.  The agency is looking to develop a new creative chapter for the brand and firmly establish the new brand position.

The client is bold but thoughtful as well.  They work closely with the agency to throw a lasso over the head of fickle consumers and reel them in.  The Business 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 clients’ ambition and there is a recipe for award winning work.
