Account Director - Top name agency – £52k + benefits!

Are you at Account Director level?  Have you ever worked on a highly regulated sector - such as lottery, gaming, alcohol or tobacco?

If so, this could be the role for you!

The agency need a strong Account Director to join their team, delivering BTL activity for this global account.

The role of the Account Director will be to ensure that the agency work in  is smooth, seamless, delivered on time and that client expectations are managed.

The role is pivotal, as you will hold responsibility for leading and directing the account, building and developing their clients’ business through strong relationships and creating the conditions and opportunities for others to thrive and produce the best possible work.

No two pieces of business have the same requirements so the Account Director must work closely with their team to ensure clarity on the division of responsibilities to ensure they are best set up to deliver.  It’s their responsibility to set the tone and mood of the team and to dictate the structure and running of the account.

The agency need someone who is forward-thinking and drives excellent client service, developing a culture of rock solid delivery to a team mindset of going beyond just what is asked for by clients.  Leading by example, the Account Director will  inspire the team to meet their own high standards.

You must also have 'gravitas' to lead this client and this team - as the Account Director will have a fair bit of autonomy too.

Given the challenges of regulated industries - lottery, alcohol and tobacco - the Account Director must ideally have previous experience in this field, but also truly understand the implications within retail and general shopper marketing.

It's a big role for a big personality! And it's a high profile role which can also involve some travel, at times.

Whilst BTL marketing is a strength and skill, you'll be required to participate in TTL thinking and strategy development.

The agency work closely with a number of agencies to form a collaborative approach, so an Account Director with strong TTL skills is required and you may be required to travel periodically - within Europe.

Key requirements:

  • Solid agency experience
  • Proven leadership & relationship building skills
  • Ability to lead, mentor & deliver when needed
  • Solid experience with regulated sectors such as - lottery, alcohol or tobacco
  • Proven strategic skills & commercial thinking to influence the strategy, the creative product and the client’s view of the agency as a trusted partner.

The agency take good care of their people, with strong remuneration, benefits, an active social scene and long standing client relationships.

Lastly, if you have the confidence, experience and gravitas and don't shy away from challenges - then this could be the role for you.
