About You

We are looking for a remarkable Creative Director with enviable experience to help lead on one of our biggest global clients, driving top-notch creativity for innovative global brands.

Someone who loves inspiring others, thinking outside the box and aiming for the highest, award-winning standards. In return, you’ll be offered the opportunity to own and define your client relationships, challenge the status quo for the best creative solution and be part of a supportive senior team with one common goal: to be the best in the business!

Reporting to elmwood’s Global Executive Creative Director, you’ll act as brand guardian for a portfolio of global brands, including one of our pillar clients, delivering beautifully crafted work underpinned with strategic thinking.

You’ll be multidisciplinary in nature and know what it takes to build great brands, having a breadth of experience across both consumer and corporate. With global brand experience, you’ll understand the importance of creating something truly iconic that lives and breathes on all touchpoints and that can be activated in a way that truly resonates with consumers.

This role is for a seasoned Creative Director, or an Associate CD, looking to make the next step in their career. Someone from a similar strategic brand design agency background who can execute big ideas, lead a team of talented creatives, be exceptional in front of clients and most importantly, embrace our culture of teamwork and inclusivity.

We are currently making a gentle and safe return to the studio and, longer term, we envisage a hybrid approach to working between studio and home. We are also happy to consider candidates looking for more flexible working arrangements which could include working part-time (no less than 4 days a week around client work).
