Contract Type
Full Time


My client boast some of the most luxury brands in the world, offering a service that encompasses branding, strategy, corporate identity, packaging, architecture, positioning. The design work produced here is fascinating, enviable and award winning.

Though a small-medium in size, and totally independent, my client consistently beat some of the huge major global consultancies when it comes to pitching for new business, the key to their success being the offering of something totally unique and different proved in the spec of the work they are well known for. Headed up by one of the world’s leading journalists and entrepreneurs in the luxury fashion and design space the vibe in this consultancy is absolutely unrivalled – nowhere else will you find such a creative atmosphere.

The responsibility attached to the Account Director position is substantial. As one of few in the company you will be expected to lead a team and mentor the more junior members of staff. You will be heavily client facing and not adverse to travel as and when it comes – for this reason as well as the international client base, languages are absolutely essential. Additionally, pitching will come naturally to you which will see you playing a heavy hand in the expansion of the company. 

As Account Director you will have:

·         Experience working on luxury brands (a bonus, but not essential)

·         A broad skill set across branding, strategy, advertising and design

·         Fluent in other languages

·         Consultancy and / or studio experience
