When it comes to picking your next role as an Account Director, its never easy to work out whether you will be jumping from the frying pan into the fire… we get it!
I am not going to bore you with listing out the key responsibilities of an Account Director as to be honest, whether you’re a Senior Account Manager looking to step up or an Account Director seeking a new challenge, you know the role. You don’t need me to repeat it. Plus I can share the job description with you at a later date.
What I can do is give you a flavour of the type of agency this is…
We have worked with this independent agency for a number of years and seen them evolve and therefore we are in a very strong position to vouch for them.
This particular agency is a multinational B2B integrated marcomms agency that specialise in the ever growing and exciting tech sector.
My personal background is integrated marketing within the Tech space and if I had my agency time all over again then this is definitely one of the agencies that would make my top wish list! Not just because they work with some of the biggest tech brands around, not even because they’ve won numerous awards over the years covering lots of categories, including creative, strategy and content to name but a few. No, the reason I’d want to join this agency is because of the people! They are so much fun and there is loads of opportunity to develop and grow!
Yes, on occasion things go wrong, deadlines get shifted and the creative team spend a little more time than they should perfecting that idea… welcome to agency world! However, in this agency it’s the people around you that tend to make it all worthwhile. That and the fact as an Account Director in this agency, no day is the same.
They are one of the top agencies in their field but that’s because everyone is passionate about what they do. Its not about white labelling an old idea or you just becoming a box shifter. No, its far more than that!
As an Account Director, its about developing strong client and colleague relationships, about helping strategize and deliver a new campaign and understanding the relationship between marketing and sales. That a creative idea doesn’t have to be vanilla. And that at the end of the day no matter what kind of day you’ve had, you’ve shared it with people who understand the meaning of TEAM!
In addition, due to the size of the agency there is plenty of opportunity to develop your career within this agency, either here or abroad if you so wish.

- A solid marketing agency background within the B2B arena
- You will have worked on multiple IT/Tech accounts
