Digital skills and experience of working on rebrand projects are required alongside a working knowledge of packaging, print and production processes.

The agency requires an experienced Account Director for this role rather than a SAM who is looking to step up.

The agency and your accounts

This agency empowers its people and give them responsibility for running accounts within a supportive environment where they are all focussed on one big goal – to make life more rewarding for the consumer without harming the planet, whilst ensuring their clients and everyone involved are rewarded in the process.

The accounts you will work on are flexible to a degree and will depend on the experience you already have.

Each Account Director has their own set of key accounts which they run with one or two account managers. This is a hands-on job and not just some boring internal management role. Your time will be spent working with clients on fast-paced, live projects with the agency’s strategists, creatives and producers.

The agency is looking for confidence without arrogance, someone who is happy holding a room and leading relationships with entrepreneurs, founders and top-level corporate clients, including CEOs.

As the senior point of contact for business owners through to marketing directors, you are terrific with people and super-effective at developing plans, taking and influencing briefs, and suggesting strategic solutions. Inspiring confidence while juggling priorities and pushing projects along will be second nature.
