Senior Account Manager, Independent Creative Agency, London, £34k - £40k

What’s the Creative Agency like for the Senior Account Manager?

Mischief, confidence and ambition make good bedfellows and that certainly holds true for this great independent agency that has romped up the league tables.

There is a groundswell of excitement around this medium –sized agency which is run by the A-listers of the industry.  It is a playground for entrepreneurs and nervy creatives who never settle for “good” and are constantly pushing to be bolder and braver.

There is real momentum here and their hunger for great ideas has catapulted them into the limelight and onto some fantastic pitch lists beating the larger agencies and producing some dazzling work.

It’s not just the quirky or niche clients that chase after this agency’s services but the larger advertisers also want to know what the agency can do to revitalise their brands.

They have flexed their creative muscles to produce distinctive advertising that cuts through the drear produced by the more cautious players.  They know that a high production value cannot rescue a dull idea.  

The bigger agencies that battened down the hatches have lost momentum and have woken up to find that this exciting independent has stolen the march on them and left them behind in the doldrums.

In today’s world it is about being daring, fleet of foot and having the confidence to turn down business that doesn’t fit the agency culture.  Procurement - led clients who “know the price of everything and the value of nothing” have beaten some of the bigger agencies into submission; this one is flourishing. 

The proof is in the pudding: this is one of the few agencies that is weighted 60:40 in favour of the Creative Department and they have produced some agency-defining work.
