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

How do you drive preference for a brand that is invisible?

How do you jolt the consumer out of apathy?

These are just two of the meaty questions awaiting the Account Director on this well-known UK base account.  The Account Director will have a firm hand on the tiller managing a senior client who is marketing savvy and ambitious for the brand supporting lots of innovative thinking.

There is a big budget, edgy creative and a willingness by the client to experiment with new ideas.

There is a lot of brand heritage and the account offers a huge variety of projects that test different skill sets and give opportunities to learn.  Above the Line plays an important role along with content.  There is an integrated philosophy including TV, film, online content and social media. 

Therefore, the Account Director needs to come from a well-known creative agency with above the line experience on a big piece of business and be completely 360 in outlook and experience.

The role would suit an independent-minded Account Director with a thirst for understanding the complicated and a genuine ability to find opportunities in challenges; an Account Director who is keen to lead and to become indispensable to the business. 

This role needs a genuine all-rounder. Talking to the client about this role, they want a true partner who can feel as much a part of their team as the agency team. 

The creative work on the account gets better with every campaign and so the agency needs an Account Director with creative ambition and the ability to drive the agency team and the client creatively.   The agency has a revitalised creative department so it is an exciting time to make world class work on a big brand.

This is a great time for an Account Director to join the account and have some fairy dust sprinkled on them as it is attracting a lot of internal attention and the global Head of Creative has declared the upcoming work as being one of the top 3 campaigns for this year; so there is plenty of creative impetus around the business.   

If you enjoy messing about with creative ideas and puzzling out business conundrums then this is a terrific piece of business to make your name on.  There is genuine opportunity to take an experimental approach to a traditional sector where there is no room for cookie cutter thinking.
