Job description

Account Director, Integrated Creative Agency, Central London, £45k - £50k

What’s the Creative Agency like for the Account Director?

All agencies are not the same! If you are cooped up in a sterile office feeling as if you have joined a bank rather than Adland, then this quirky agency with its outlandish offices and surreal work will help you get your mojo back!

Formally recognised as being one of the best employers in Adland, this agency seems to weave magic into the industry and is modest enough not to shout about itself but let others do it for them.

This is a large independent agency that has realised its creative ambition without losing its special character. It isn’t afraid to ruffle feathers and is adept at snatching business out of the jaws of the bigger networks which are brasher but less thoughtful.

This year alone they have managed to bag several sought-after accounts thanks to the fact that their clients give them some of the highest referral ratings in the industry. The standard of work is high and keeps improving – a lot of it pretty surreal!

Their investment in talent has paid off and their work is backed by sharp writing and great creative innovation.

The agency is incredibly friendly with a good social side and one of the best “agency based” bars in London with their own in-house beer!

The Account Director role

The role is ideal for a CRM Account Director who wants to go above the line and join a highly creative advertising agency.

The account is truly integrated so the Account Director will be spending at least 50% of their time doing above the line. But the Account Director needs to have solid experience of running CRM programmes on big brands in order to balance out the team skills.

The agency is hot on integration and is keen to ensure that all their account handlers can work across all channels. This is a golden opportunity for the Account Director to share their CRM expertise with the team and gain above the line experience in return.

The Account Director will be taking the brand lead on a terrific online account that is a challenger brand to the bigger national players in the UK market.

This is usually regarded as an over-crowded sector with a lot of “me too” campaigns stuffed with hi-tech jargon and price promises. This clever client has gone for a different voice and has created an exciting campaign that has helped raise its profile and put it on the awards trail.

This is a great account to work on and the Creative Department are keen to take a hand in making a difference.

Despite having a smaller budget, this ballsy client has punched above its weight and is snapping at the heels of its rivals and is consistently stealing market share from them.

The Account Director will be handling some blistering creative and there is a great mix of work on the account that includes TV, radio, OOH digital and social media and CRM.

There is plenty of autonomy on the account since the Account Director will be reporting into a Business Director who believes in mentoring and career development.

Highlights of the Account Director role:

  • Joining a creatively ambitious independent agency
  • Being the lead creative agency
  • Handling an exciting innovative account
  • Gaining above the line experience
  • Handling truly integrated campaigns

Desirable Experience/Skills for the Account Director role:

  • The ability to really shine – they are looking for a superstar
  • Good creative agency background
  • CRM and fully integrated experience
  • A real entrepreneurial approach
  • Strategic aptitude: spotting a good idea and running with it
