This is not an agency for the faint-hearted or those who wish to get safely to the other side!
The Senior 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 Senior Account Director on this well-known international lifestyle brand that is run out of the UK. Acting as Deputy to the Business Lead on the account, the Senior Account Director will have a firm hand on the tiller managing senior stakeholders and leading an account that relies on great creative thinking; supporting lots of product innovation by the client.

The agency wants to put the account ahead of the competition and keep it at the heart of innovation in its sector as it continues to drive brand preference.
A huge variety of projects awaits the Senior Account Director, from big well-known sponsorships handling global campaigns; to the new, highly awarded Christmas campaign; to fascinating behavioural economics affecting consumer change.

The creative work on the account gets better with every campaign and so the agency needs a Senior 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.
