The Agency  

“Faint heart never won fair lady” is certainly true of this great independent advertising agency.

They are gutsy and brave and know how to seize an outlandish idea and run with it.

They have embraced the way consumers react with brands and this has placed them at the cutting edge of popular culture.

They get the role of the advertising agency in the cut and thrust of today’s market as media becomes more fragmented.   Client collaboration and partnership play a key role.  In addition, multi - faceted ideas are seamlessly integrated into campaigns that are unusual and memorable.

They have kept the creative bar high and recognise the difference between being a crowd pleaser and a crowd teaser.  They covet creative awards and do well at the key ceremonies.
The Account Director role

If you are a bit of a maverick who is smart and easily bored then this is the perfect agency for you.

You will be handling a well-known UK based telco account that has moved into broadcast and is jockeying for position with the bigger players.

There are plenty of strategic challenges to keep you on your toes and fantastic creative ideas waiting to be tapped into.

The client’s initial aim is to nail the consumers who have resisted pay TV so far and present them with a tempting offering of movies, sport and entertainment.

There is a massive marketing budget lined up and you will be in at the beginning of the process.  

You will have the opportunity to work closely with the client to shape the strategy and devise creative campaigns that have a huge impact.

This is a fast-paced industry that needs quick wits backed by sharp thinking.  It will place you at the cutting edge of creativity since the client is determined to carve their own niche rather than being a “me too”.

The agency is creatively ambitious and has the talent to back it up so you will be on the awards trail.

Highlights of the Account Director role:

  • A seamlessly integrated advertising agency
