The Agency

More than any other agency in the business, this clever shop gets integrated advertising and their expertise is drawn from all walks of life.

The talent is housed together rather than being hived off into different silos and they offer on the ground expertise in Advertising, PR and digital.

The result is a genuinely media neutral offering.  They have a knack for winning challenger brands and turning them around.

The agency is a well-known network and they cover all the key sectors: FMCG, automotive, financial, retail and charity.  

What makes the agency particularly appealing is the type of client they are wont to attract.  

The large networks usually go for the big buck bottom feeders that are driven by procurement.  However, this clever agency is a magnet for brands that challenge the status quo and they work closely with senior marketers to make a real difference to their clients’ business.

The Account Director role

The role is to handle an international FMCG account.  The agency leads the brand creatively and strategically from London around the world.

It is an integrated role - for example the agency leads on digital - but TV is a key part of the job.

The account is all origination and this is a very exciting time to join.  The client is looking to re-position the brand and go for a new audience.  So you will be involved in blue sky strategic thinking in addition to handling inspirational creative.

The client is looking to get some creative awards under their belt so you will be handling some good work.

You will have a senior reporting line with quite a lot of autonomy.  You will be managing a bright ambitious team who are looking for a good role model they can look up to.

The agency is hot on career progression and there is good mentoring.

Highlights of the Account Director role:

  • A cracking FMCG account
  • Advertising led but with a good dollop of digital
