(Junior) Account Director – Superb Agency – Soho - to £40k

One of London’s finest Soho-based agencies requires a (Junior) Account Director to work on a progressive retail account.

The agency positions itself as one of the few, true direct marketing agencies capable of creating impactful offline, digital and fully integrated campaigns that generate response, foster loyalty and build brands.

They are looking for an experienced Senior Account Manager who is near to moving up to Account Director or a recently promoted Account Director to join the agency and work on an instantly recognised retail account - the biggest DM account currently within the agency and one which is a dominant force in the loyalty market.  

The agency have recently won this client’s digital work too so though its probably 85% direct mail and 15% digital presently, by this time next year they expect that to shift to more like 50/50.

It’s a really exciting time to join the second biggest account in the agency with great career growth potential!

Currently, their main programme focuses on loyalty card holders.

The team is split into 2 areas each managed by an Account Director and ultimately a Group Account Director and Managing Partner.
