Account Director - Live Events / Communications

Our client is a leading and independent live communications agency who create award-winning experiences that connect unique, intense and exciting moments with dynamic lifestyle brands.
They help their clients make friends with the fans and followers that matter most to drive purchase intent and raise brand fame. These real world, real time 'must see moments' not only tell a product's story, making audiences shiver with brand excitement long after the final encore, but are also designed to spread beyond those present and provide content to be maximised across PR as well as earned media channels. Ultimately, they reward their clients with an engaged audience reach of millions.

They're looking for a hands-on human dynamo with a wealth of integrated advertising, events or digital creative experience, who can lead from the front on a major client as well as nurture our latest account win.

Having grown up in agency, you'll have tonnes of cultural nous and be up for bringing our clients' stories to life in the greatest possible way through Live and Experiential. Sector experience is not a main factor, but demonstrable great work gained on mainstream lifestyle brands is essential.

You'll be a great strategic and commercial thinker you'll also be a fantastic communicator who's happy both working and playing hard. We need someone with their eye on the main chance, the ability to seek out new business opportunities, a hunger to maximise existing accounts, and an inherent knack for delighting and inspiring our clients.
