This is an exciting opportunity for an innovative thinker who thrives on bringing brands to life through effective strategic and design thinking.

As an established Account Director you will be accomplished in strategically leading the day-to-day business relationship with clients, helping them position their brands across multiple touchpoints and the consumer journey – from brand identity and packaging through to motion, activation, experience.  And if you have experience of taking brands even further across digital, social media and content all the better.

This role demands drive and pace, with the ability to make quick, smart decisions. You will have a thirst for exploring ‘next gen’ and “new ways” in all aspects of the brand, keeping abreast of the latest brandworld insights and trends and understanding how brands engage with customers cross-channel.

Ideally, you will have previously worked in a similar environment/strategic agency, and have a wealth of experience working with consumer brands across a global footprint.  In addition, you’ll be a natural at leading conversations, and identifying new opportunities, that stretch both scope of work and brands, ultimately delivering organic growth.

And finally, we’re looking for a proactive self-starter with a curious nature, with the ability to demonstrate creativity and intellect at all times and think about what’s next for the brand.

We are offering this role on a full-time, permanent basis. However, we are also open to discussing a 12 month FTC if preferred, or a part-time working arrangement (of no less than four days per week).


To apply, please send your CV to: [email protected]

The right cultural fit is just as important to us as a good match in experience. So we’d love to see a little personality shining through on your CV as well as your glowing achievements.

Not surprisingly, we get a huge number of applications, and while we do our best to reply to everyone it can sometimes take time.
