Job Description

Account Director - London

Our client is a proudly independent and ambitious Brand Communications agency set up in London in 2001. They have grown organically in that time to open a studio in Melbourne, Australia and have worked internationally on projects in Asia, America and Europe. They specialise in the retail and leisure sectors, working with clients such as Iceland, M&S, Wickes, Pizza Express, Tesco Mobile and Freesat to deliver amazing brand experiences across multiple channels.

They are most often engaged by brands at a time of change - whether that's a fundamental shift in customer perception or a need to rationalise prior to further growth. For example they have recently helped Iceland transform customer perception of frozen food and an outdated store estate with a complete redesign of their stores, receiving unrivalled like for like sales in many stores (up to 50% up). A project they are currently receiving multiple Award nominations for.

Culture wise, they thrive upon their agility and level of collaboration. As a small independent, they believe in translating the benefits of this to their clients with hands-on Senior involvement in all projects.

They are a passionate and curious team who value simplicity and their work reflects this, aiming to solve clients' business challenges with innovative yet realistic creative solutions.
