What's the Agency like for the Senior Account Director?

A key player on the advertising and digital scene, this ranks as one of the best creative agencies in the industry thanks to their ability to marry classical brand building with cutting edge digital thinking and to execute ideas in any channel. More than any other agency they are truly integrated.

They have an eclectic mix of talent and know how to get creative pulses racing by delivering work that people really care about. They have tuned in to the fact that a fragmented media landscape makes for a more complex consumer: fidgety and fickle; dodging what they don't like yet amplifying what they do.

In the age of conversation and chat it is all about achieving cut through and this agency produces some of the most engaging creative work in the industry; creating campaigns that people fall in love with.

Their creative work is spare and muscular and they manage to make brands fly that little bit higher. As a result they have loyal infatuated clients across a terrific portfolio and a clear sense of direction.

New business is plentiful and they have landed several high profile accounts.

Culturally the agency has an open and respectful culture with a horizontal structure.

The social side plays an important role in agency life too: Account Management is a close-knit team with a family feel and they have an away-trip abroad every year.

In addition there is weekly socialising at "Teatime Tuesday" and drinks or cakes are a regular feature most Fridays. The social committee are a dedicated bunch and make sure there are frequent unexpected surprises for key dates in the annual calendar.

The Senior Account Director role

The agency is seeking a Senior Account Director who is ambitious. They are after a passionate self-starter!

The Senior Account Director will be handling two highly creative UK based accounts.

The first is a lifestyle account that is a relatively new win for the agency. The brand is having to work hard on a smaller budget than its competitors in a highly competitive category. As a result, creative is "all" and the agency delivers big 360 campaigns a couple of times a year with a lot of ATL stuff. This is a great account on which to get close to the brand and see how creative can work hard to make it punch above its weight.

The Senior Account Director will be managing a small, friendly account team with lots of headroom and autonomy in a supportive environment.

The second account is a long-standing client that is completely integrated and spans the whole agency offering. The work is incredibly varied and the projects can include everything from full 360 campaigns, to digital transformation, to brand repositioning and research. It's an account that gives great exposure at all stages of the project allowing the Senior Account Director to foster strong client relationships.

There is a strong team culture and everyone is supportive and extremely friendly with a lot of socialising outside the agency.

The agency's creative expectations for both accounts are very high and the Senior Account Director will be managing a restless team always looking for the best possible idea and pushing the work to be as good as it can possibly be.

Collaborating with senior agency and client staff, the Senior Account Director needs to be able to take the lead in strategic and creative conversations with clients who are bright, challenging and inspiring.
