Head of Retail / Managing Partner / Business Director

This is a huge opportunity for the right Head of Retail / Managing Partner / Business Director. This leading integrated agency is one of the best in London, and they now have a growing global footprint with offices in the USA, Asia, Australia and across Europe. 

They are looking to bring on board a retail expert, a modern retail thinker who understands both traditional and digital retail, and how brands operate in this space at a global level. You will be a modern retail thinker, a Head of Retail / Managing Partner / Business Director, who understands both traditional shopper marketing and activation work, but also how social plays a part in retail, digital experiences in-store, understanding the customer journey across retail digital channels like Amazon also. We want a forward thinking Head of Retail / Managing Partner / Business Director, someone who wants to come into this agency and head up their offering. 

This is a super exciting role, and a chance for a Head of Retail / Managing Partner / Business Director to showcase their skill set and experience and lead from the top.

For this role we will consider a top end Business Director looking to step up, or a current head of / managing partner / Client Services Director looking to become Head of Retail. 

The agency are truly integrated, around 800+ people, and everything is delivered under one roof - ATL, brand, direct response, digital, social and content, CRM, CX and experience and more. Their retail team is around 30 strong, full of talent, and they need a leader to come in at Head of Retail / Managing Partner / Business Director. The role will be Head of Retail, and you'll oversee this very successful and sizeable team.

The Head of Retail / Managing Partner / Business Director must have gravitas, leadership qualities and you'll be smart and engaging. We need a Head of Retail / Managing Partner / Business Director who is commercially minded, can work with international / global clients (some in Asia also, so experience here would be great!)

It's important that you can do the traditional retail work, but you must be a Head of Retail / Managing Partner / Business Director who gets digital, and customer journeys across digital channels. The agency is trying to build a more progressive and innovative retail department, and it's key they find a Head of Retail / Managing Partner / Business Director who can sit at the top and drive things forward. 

Roles like this are rare. This is a chance for a Head of Retail / Managing Partner / Business Director to come in and make their mark on a business, this is an opportunity for someone to own this space and take charge of retail at this agency.

You'll be exposed to some of the biggest brands in the world, and you'll arguably lead one of the biggest retailers out there. We therefore need a Head of Retail / Managing Partner / Business Director who has had experience working with corporate clients. This is not a fashion led brand or agency, it's more about consumer facing goods like telco, electronic products, petrol, FMCG, and we need someone who has worked at a global level and overseen top retail brands in this space. The Head of Retail / Managing Partner / Business Director will work with some huge leaders in this agency and the client team, and you must be someone who can command a room and hold your own. 

If this sounds like you, and you're an ambitious, driven and hungry Head of Retail / Managing Partner / Business Director who is looking for a new challenge then we want to hear from you immediately. Dream role for the right person.
