Job description

There are many Account Director and Senior Account Director roles out there and at times it can be hard to differentiate one from the other. Most of them will be really good stable roles where if you follow processes you will always do well.

However once in a while a role/agency comes along that’s different. Offers you something more than just a job, giving you that blast of excitement and yet still challenges and reminds you why you got into this industry in the first place.

If you are looking to be inspired and believe in something different then we have that role….

Our client is a known and fast growing integratedmarketing agency that was founded by two industry leaders who have a reputation for doing things differently and have a proven track record throughout their careers that back this up.

This is not an egotistical agency, they don’t believe in the ivory tower syndrome so big egos need not apply. As a leading content marketing agency they invest heavily into creativity and strategy and their approach and ideas are designed to shake the markets they operate in, which they do very well.

They feature high up in the B@B awards and work with some very large names within the B2B Tech and Telco sectors.

Its due to this ongoing success that after a large recruitment drive last year that we are now seeking an Account Director and Senior Account Director to come on board and work across a number of well known blue chip brands. All varying in size. Enough to handle but not enough to drown under…!

We aren’t looking for a typical Account Director. This person needs to be a real leader and a strategic thinker and consultant to their clients. And we don’t just mean leading people. You will take the lead on one of this agency’s flagship accounts and will be expected to develop this YoY. And it’s a fantastically creative client with budget to play with!

You will have a passion for creativity and content and understand the importance this plays when trying to do things differently in an off the shelf market.

You will be someone that people will respect because you aren’t a bark orders type of person. You will remember what it’s like to look after the up and coming talent and nurture them as they will ultimately be the ones that make your life easier.

You will have an integrated or digital background with solid experience within B2B and IT/Tech.

You will be a voice in the room, someone people will look up to because you are knowledgeable and your team will trust you.

And finally try to remember its also about having fun. So as much as we want you to love the opportunity and feel motivated to come in every day, what’s even better is if you’ve got a personal passion outside of work. Something that is completely yours.

In return for your skills as an Account Director or Senior Account Director our client offers a generous package ranging between

£50-65k plus benefits.

About The Jefferson Group

The Jefferson Group specialises in four core areas; Recruitment, Executive Search, Merger & Acquisitions and Venture Capital.

RECRUITMENT
It’s not what we do. It’s what we do well that’s important – And, paradoxically, that can often be defined by what we don’t do.

We don’t play the quantity game. So if you’re a talented creative, astute marketer or strategist you’ll be with us because we know we can make a genuine contribution to your career. Not to make up the numbers.

And if you’re recruiting talent we don’t put you on the end of a conveyor belt of CVs. Rather, we send you a healthy number of carefully considered individuals – People chosen for their outstanding talent, work ethic and fit.

The marketing, creative an media agency sector is our arena. We grew up there. We live in it now; networking socially, constantly and extensively. So we’re able to reach the right people and bring them together. Which makes your recruitment journey much more expedient. No mismatched interviews. No chaff. No square peg scenarios. And, further down the line, higher retention levels and more satisfying career paths.

Our core competencies include the following sectors:

  • Integrated
  • Brand
  • Digital/Social Media/Mobile
  • Sales Promotion
  • Corporate Comms
  • Publishing
  • Creative
  • Production

Within these sectors we are able to fulfil job opportunities ranging from Account Management, Creative, Strategy, Project Management, Board Level, Operations and Production. So give us a call today on 020 7717 9444 for a more detailed conversation on how we can help introduce you to your next job opportunity or superstar talent.

EXECUTIVE SEARCH
As we all know an essential ingredient for any successful business is to ensure that you have the right leaders driving the business forward. Over the years we have successfully placed numerous international senior business leaders and department heads in key positions within the marketing, creative and media agency circuit. These positions include the likes of chief executive’s, non executive’s, divisional heads and bespoke complex assignments.

We have achieved these results with the use of numerous highly developed techniques and software applications that allow us to monitor and track key influencers within the market place.

We also understand the importance of confidentiality that comes with such a responsibility as more often than not these opportunities arise due to a variety of influences that most businesses may not wish to disclose on the open market. Either way we employ complete discretion and advanced techniques when seeking out and approaching key players to ensure our clients have total anonymity until we are in a position to reveal.

M&A AND JOINT VENTURES
Whether you are a business looking to merge, buy or sell, we advise businesses on growth and exit strategies whilst guiding them through the sale or acquisition process from start to finish.

When partnering with Jefferson, we grasp the importance of thoroughly understanding your company’s ambitions and criteria. We tailor our managed search and selection service to suit the requirement. Meticulously identifying qualified potentials and discreetly marketing your business to them, thus unlocking the door to a successful transaction. This protects your interests and keeps your intentions intensely confidential by conducting sensitive, third party negotiations. Then, finally, we make all the necessary formal, business-to-business introductions.

We primarily offer three services and in each case we project manage the brief from beginning to a seamless end.

  1. Advising agencies how to maximize their growth & exit value.
  2. Helping vendors sell their businesses.
  3. Finding the best & brightest independent companies for acquirers to acquire.

VENTURE CAPITAL
It can sometimes be difficult for individuals or companies to find willing investors or entrepreneurs who wish to get in on the ground floor of a growing business or a unique start up idea. This is where Jefferson comes in.

We specialise in creating a bridge between individuals/companies and investors who can help realise your vision by offering investment and if required a non-executive management board to help take your concept from paper to reality.

We achieve this by partnering with a select number of approved investors and become an intermediary between both parties, managing the initial application from start through to funding.
