Job Details

Are you interested in sport partnerships and building brands? Are you ready to unleash your full potential and join a team that's breaking new ground in the global supply chain industry? Do you have what it takes to be a part of a progressive, fast-paced, and agile organization that's changing the game for its employees, customers, and communities worldwide?

If so, then DP World is the place for you! As a world-leading end-to-end logistics business, DP World is revolutionizing the way goods are moved around the world. With a presence in over 10% of global trade, their innovative solutions and cutting-edge technology are transforming supply chains and building new infrastructure in Somaliland. It’s likely that the device you’re reading this job spec on will have been sourced, built or shipped by DP World. Publicis Connect are not just a team - we're a movement for change at Starcom built and designed for DP World, and we're looking for someone like you to join us!

What will you be doing?

In this Global Account Director role, you'll work closely with our global teams to develop and implement comprehensive media and digital strategies that support DP World's extensive portfolio of brands (currently 18) and partnerships (36, including major brands like McLaren, European Tour, and World Economic Forum). You'll be responsible for triaging briefs and selecting the best teams to deliver tailored media and digital solutions, as well as shaping the media strategy and measurement approaches that meet DP World's high standards.

You'll also play a key role in driving cross-market coordination and effecting change in the markets across ME, Africa, India, Americas & Western Europe. You'll work closely with the client's commercial teams to develop targeted ABM campaigns that deliver strong commercial outcomes, and you'll review plans with market teams to ensure they meet the highest quality standards.

This role isn't your usual 'Global' role - you won't just be responsible for coordinating plans from local teams, you'll be creating and working on some of those plans as well.

What are we looking for?

The successful candidate for this role will have a proven track record in developing and implementing successful media and digital strategies in an agency environment, as well as experience in managing budgets and client accounts. You'll have worked with (and enjoyed working with) B2B campaigns and clients, as this is 70% of the focus here so this will be an essential part of the role.

Your ability to think strategically, collaborate with cross-functional teams, and drive commercial outcomes will be essential in this role. Sometimes this may require writing a reverse brief for the client, uncovering audience and category insights, working with the clients commercial teams and shaping comprehensive digital strategies and measurement solutions.

You'll have an excellent level of interpersonal and communication skills, as well as the ability to confidently challenge the client with diplomacy where required.
