That way they always 'get it'. 

With sustainability and climate control at the heart of all of their brands, their goal is to make life more rewarding for the consumer without harming the planet. 

The role of Account Director:

They run a very flat management structure here, so Account Directors at are crucial and play a vital role in growing the business. They never put commercial ambition before integrity.

You will own your own set of key accounts and run with one or two account managers to help you. This is a hands-on job and not a place where you’ll spend your day having meetings.  Your time will be spent working with clients and our teams on dynamic, live projects with our superhuman strategists, creatives and producers.

They will need you to be a bit brilliant with people generally, and super effective at developing plans, taking and influencing briefs, and suggesting strategic solutions.
