Job Description

Due to big new client wins, this stunning 50-person branding / design shop is the go-to agency for talented Account Directors looking to escape the London rat race.

This role would suit an existing Account Director or a Senior Account Manager looking to step up.

The agency

The winner of countless awards, this is without doubt the South West’s leading consumer branding and design agency. It also has a track record of attracting London agency candidates looking to relocate to the South West.

The agency works with an impressive array of high-end FMCG consumer clients across branding, brand experience, visual identity, packaging design and innovation. The quality of its design output is simply outstanding.

The culture is a warm, welcoming haven for ego-free talent while the environment is collaborative and really supports personal growth.

The role

Your role will be to provide professional, planned and responsive Account Direction to maintain and grow client relationships while upholding the creative vision of the agency. You will be the account leader and the client services decision maker with a deep, strategic understanding of your clients.

The role reports directly to the Managing Partner who will regularly mentor and coach you to improve the quality of your output and thinking, as well as agreeing your performance objectives and development needs.

You will manage a team of Account Managers too.


The agency would prefer someone from a branding / design agency with previous FMCG or consumer branding / packaging design experience.

As well as a talented account leader, you enjoy (and are good at) business development. You are therefore a tenacious opportunity spotter who’s dynamic enough to identify areas for the agency’s creativity and strategic thinking to add value, whilst skilful and intuitive enough to convert these opportunities into projects.

You are also a natural team mentor who loves supporting the development of your team.

Salary and benefits

Up to £50k plus a great package of hard and soft benefits including a generous personal development budget to spend as you wish; flexible working options; a bonus of up to 10% of salary, etc, etc!

Existing Account Directors and ambitious Senior Account Managers with branding / design agency and FMCG / consumer branding / packaging design experience, please get in touch. This is a role NOT to be missed!

To considered for this role, candidates must be eligible to live and work in the UK.
