The Role:

This is an opportunity to create coms across a range of channels and be the guardian of an entire campaign. The role is within split between the agency and the client and time will be spent between working out of the agency’s London offices and the clients UK offices. This means working closely and forming strong relationships with senior managers of the clients as you work together on TTL, fast paced, always on retail campaigns for the UK. You need to be used to working on through the line client briefs, delivering a seamless TTL customer experience from TV through to CRM, working closely with digital to make sure that the full customer eco-system is considered.

Ideally you will have come from a similar background, working on a retail account and must be able to think ahead and react quickly. As an Account Director, you are responsible for the day-to-day leadership of your account and management of the team.

You’re creatively ambitious for the agency – always looking for opportunities that go well beyond the brief, personally championing work from brief right through to case study. You recognize and nurture great ideas but aren’t afraid to challenge mediocre ones with the creative department. You lead by example – encouraging colleagues to strive for greater creativity and insight.

The role is to work closely with the Business Director, fellow Account Director and Managing Partner to develop and deliver rigorous business development plans for your accounts. You use your knowledge of the client’s business to uncover opportunities and demonstrate significant flair in your quest to grow each piece of business.
