Job Description

Our client is an independent full service integrated marcoms agency that was first established in the late 80’s and has not only survived but maintained its position in the market place.

A team over 50 bright, creative individuals make up this forward thinking agency, built on digital transformation and traditional marcoms.

We would describe this agency as a life style agency… but we don’t mean lifestyle as in part time. Rather they believe in empowering and encouragement, allowing you the breath, explore new ideas whilst supporting you to ensure you have a work/life balance. No one can be productive or effective if they are working 12 plus hours a day.

Due to growth this agency is now seeking either a very experienced Account Director who is ready to step up to Group Account Director or an existing Group Account Director with broad versatile experience.

Reporting directly into the Managing Director, this is a true leadership role as you will have multiple teams under you who will look up at you for guidance, support and at times inspiration. There is some fantastic talent within these walls and as we mentioned earlier this agency embraces development. That means a big part of your role will be to mentor and guide.

On top of this you will have P&L responsibility for multiple key accounts. And although you will have two Account Directors reporting into you, you will be expected to have an overriding key relationship with all of your clients as the buck stops with you.

To be suitable for this role you will have strong integrated B2B marketing agency background with lots of digital experience as well. I know that’s kind of obvious in today’s market but we do need to highlight this.

Its OK if you don’t have a purest B2B background but the split between B2B and B2C should be in favour of the former.

Finally, without over egging this you will need to be a charismatic leader who is happy when required to roll their sleeves up and get stuck in. This isn’t an ivory tower role and these days what roles are. However, you should have strong account management and delivery experience and know what it takes to get the job done. The teams will respect that and will want to know you understand the ups and downs of day to day agency life.

In return for your experience as either an Account Director looking to step up or are already a Group Account Director looking for a new home, our client offers a competitive salary ranging between £50-65k plus benefits all depending on experience.
